Children in Need 2011 Update

The official Doctor Who Twitter account has dropped some hints on this year’s Children in Need tie-in and it sounds like there could be more than just a preview of 2011 Doctor Who Christmas Special to look forward to.

They tweeted:

“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!”

“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…”

“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.”

“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…”

“Not what you’d expect, UNLESS you’re from the future. In which case, wasn’t it good? Talking of the future, we’ll have more news tomorrow…”

Children in Need 2011 begins Friday 18th November at 7.30pm on BBC One. According to the Radio Times listing, the Doctor Who segment will be shown sometime between 8pm-8.30pm.
