It has been confirmed that a special Doctor Who scene has been filmed for this year’s Children In Need appeal, starring David Tennant as the Fourteenth Doctor.

For quite a few years, Doctor Who was a staple of the annual Children In Need appeal. From the very first scene of the Tenth Doctor to the Tenth Doctor bumping into the Fifth (or David Tennant cosplaying with his father in law).

It has been confirmed that a special scene has been filmed for this year’s telethon, which will star David Tennant as the Fourteenth Doctor. There will also be episode of Doctor Who Unleashed chronicling the production of the scene. Given that this is being broadcast the week before the transmission of the first of the 60th anniversary special trio of episodes, we’re hoping for something special. Fingers crossed we get it.

Children In Need will be broadcast at 7pm on the 17th November on BBC One. In the meantime, if you’re keen to dive into the wealth of stuff available now on BBC iPlayer, but aren’t sure where to start, be sure to take a look at our handy guide. And if you’re browsing through and wondering why on earth the first ever, ever Doctor Who episode, An Unearthly Child, isn’t on the service, then we have a guide to that whole knotty controversy for you, too.

The first of David Tennant’s trio of Doctor Who specials is due to hit our telly boxes on the 25th November. He’ll be giving way to the new Doctor, played by Ncuti Gatwa, in 2024. Showrunner Russell T Davies has, meanwhile, confirmed that a 15th season of Doctor Who – or Gatwa’s second season – is already filming and due to air in 2025, and that there are also plans for the Gatwa’s third and fourth seasons as the Time Lord. That’s a lot of Doctor Who.
