Children in Need Christmas Episode Special Preview


The BBC Children in Need Appeal Night takes place every year in November. The Appeal show is a whole evening of entertainment on BBC One with celebrities singing, dancing, and doing all sorts of crazy things to help raise money.

There are also plenty of one-off specials of your favourite programmes, which in the past have included Doctor Who, Strictly Come Dancing, The One Show, EastEnders and much more!

    If the CHRISTMAS episode is like most of the 8th series episodes then no more DOCTOR for me I’m afried to say.

    The episodes title has now been revealed as – LAST CHRISTMAS.

    Theory (I didn’t think of it): Father Christmas is a time lord.
    Makes sense in a kind of eerie way:
    bigger on the inside bag,
    lots of jobs in one night,
    continuing Gallifrey search theme.

    Quite honestly, this is just a theory, and if it turns out to be true then I apologise for potential spoilering.

    The elves seem like they might get annoying after a few minutes, but I’ll give them a chance. Dark Santa is going to be interesting to see, though…

    You know, after the darkfest that was Dark Water/Death in Heaven, and the darker tone of the last two Christmas specials it’ll be nice to have a lighter episode for the Twelfth Doctor’s first Christmas special…

    probably something like the doctor is coming to town or he knows when you awake, something along those lines

    Yeah, but was as the Architect, so we didn’t see it for long….

    I don’t really care how if this turns out to be a bad episode (though I’m sure it won’t) I just want either Clara to stay with the Doctor or tie things up properly before leaving.

    After the clip I would guess at…

    The Naughty List

    or something similar

    That was really good. Dan Starkey as an elf! That’s the least costume he’s ever worn in Sci-Fi. Capaldi’s hood looks good. Clara’s back. Not only a dark doctor but a dark…SANTA!!!

    Hmmm seems interesting looks like Santa might be some sort of villain maybe or one of those people who think they’re real then it turns out they’re not. I’m a bit more excited for the episode after this clip then I was after the final though to be honest.
