Doctor Who at Children in Need 2013

Since Doctor Who returned to our screens back in 2005 there has been a Children in Need tie-in of some sort, and this year will be no exception.

The BBC have confirmed that Doctor Who will be present at the live televised appeal in November.

Exact details on what to expect are still to be confirmed. The press release only states:

Sir Terry Wogan, Tess Daly, Fearne Cotton, Zoe Ball and Nick Grimshaw play host to an array of stars, as they join in to help raise money for disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.

Amongst those lending a hand are One Direction, Doctor Who, Harry Hill, and cast of Call The Midwife.

Given that the charity event will only be just over one week away from the broadcast of the 50th anniversary special, a sketch, trailer or minisode are all possibilities.

UPDATE: Programme listings confirm that a world exclusive preview clip from The Day of the Doctor is being shown.

Children in Need 2013 begins Friday 15th November at 7.30pm on BBC One.

UPDATE 2: Trailer added which confirms Doctor Who segment will begin from 7.30pm on BBC1:
