Children in Need this Friday night will feature a special visit from the Doctor
Children in Need have tweeted a trailer for the Children in Need telethon this Friday, confirming the presence of Doctor Who and Jodie Whittaker.

Blogtor Who doesn’t know much yet about the exact nature of the Doctor Who segment. It’s been described both as “a visit from the Doctor” and “a Doctor Who special” in listings, but exactly what that means is yet to be revealed. We do know that the Doctor Who portion will be during Part One of the show. This means that it will be on BBC One sometime between 7.30pm and 10pm on Friday the 15th of November.
Even while sitting on our couches awaiting the Doctor, there’ll be plently of Children in Need fun to see. There’s going to be a “Star Wars spectacular”, a Strictly EastEnders special as Walford’s finest are paired with professional dancers, the return of Crackerjack, and an opportunity for children to turn the tables of Graham Norton and other celebrities as they take control of Norton’s Big Red Chair. Plus much, much more.
But don’t forget that you don’t need to wait for the night itself. You can donate now through the Children in Need donations page. You can also support them through purchasing any of the Children in Need branded items, whether through their online shop or from the ranges available in stores like Asda, Gregg’s, Boots and more. Never forgetting, of course, the special #1 hit album Children in Need: Got It Covered, featuring tracks by Jodie Whittaker and David Tennant, available from Amazon and all good music retailers. Whittaker and Tennant’s songs, Yellow and Sunshine on Leith, can also be downloaded individually.
