The BBC‘s Children in Need charity appeal airs tomorrow evening and as always there will be a special Doctor Who minisode premiering which will link the end of last season with the Chrismas Day episode. Children in Need is a phenomenal charity the Doctor has been affiliated for some time now, learn more about them here.
I love these minisodes because they allow the Doctor to have a zany adventure that wouldn’t fit in with the regular season. Like 2007’s “Time Crash” which brought the 10th Doctor, David Tennant, face to face with his former self, the 5th Doctor, Peter Davison. (Then Tennant married Davison’s daughter, Georgia Moffet who played Jenny in the episode “The Doctor’s Daughter.” Tennant and Moffet had a kid who is not only the child of a former Doctor but the grandchild of a former Doctor. Meaning this kid is most likely destined to save the earth from some terrible catastrophe in the future. True story.)
This year we’ve been told to expect something completely different and surprising, and I’m guessing from this teaser image it’s full throttle action.
Does Matt Smith look like an honest to goodness action star or what?

There’s no bigger Whovian on late night than Craig Ferguson. Do you remember the Doctor Who-themed episode (Complete with opening dance number.) when Matt Smith came on? The man’s got a TARDIS sitting on his desk for Gallifrey’s sake!
So, of course when Alex Kingston joined him last night to promote Like Crazy, they chatted about everything from accordions, the rumored Who movie, having a crush on Neil Gaiman and how Matt Smith smells.
