What Has Doctor Who Got Planned For Children In Need?

We thought it would just be a clip, but maybe there’s something else in store

Thanks to the Doctor Who News Page keeping an eye of the BBC Doctor Who Twitter feed, news has come to light that Doctor Who may have something more planned for the Children In Need broadcast on Friday than just the clip we were previously expecting.

Here’s what the Tweets yesterday had to say:

14:44 There's an extra special treat for Doctor Who fans on Friday’s Children in Need... Or at least there will be if things go according to plan!

15:25 Hurray! Things ARE going according to plan! Steven Moffat’s mini-script has just hit the in-boxes of a lucky few... Must look over shoulders…

16:44 Great! We can confirm that Matt Smith will be back in the bow-tie soon because the Doctor returns on Friday night in Children in Need.

17:59 We’ve seen the short script and it is NOT what you’d expect. Oh, it’s funny and fast and Doctorish and brilliant... but not what you’d expect...

Well, we don’t expect a properly-filmed mini-sode like the ones that have been recorded in the past, because there simply isn’t time to get it made. So something live then? Doctor Who cast versus the Merlin cast in a Run DMC/Aerosmith “Walk This Way” skit? Erm… maybe not.
