Children in Need’s Christmas Preview

Can’t wait until Christmas? Neither, it seems, can the BBC, who are so desperate to give us some new Doctor Who before the festive season that we’re getting another clip udring 2010′s Children in Need telethon!

Previous Doctor Who appearances on Children in Need since 2005 have included the post-regeneration “cutaway” scene that takes place between the Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler before The Christmas Invasion, Steven Moffat’s Time Crash starring David Tennant with Peter Davison, as well as the previews of upcoming episodes.

Most famous, of course, is The Five Doctors, which aired as part of Doctor Who’s 20th anniversary in 1983 as part of Children in Need.

Describing the clip as “a sneak preview of the Doctor Who Christmas special” the BBC have announced a great list of highlights for the evening’s fundraising, which includes Torchwood star John Barrowman presenting a music fundraising extravaganza in Glasgow where the cast of hit musical We Will Rock You will be among the acts joining Pudsey at the SECC as Children in Need Rocks.

BBC’s Children in Need spectacular live appeal show – as ever hosted by Terry Wogan – will air on Friday, 19th November at 7pm on BBC One.

    Rather disappointing that for the second year running, we’re just getting a preview of an upcoming episode, rather than a specially commissioned Doctor Who feature. Oh well, better than nothing I suppose.
