The long wait is finally over! Whovians across the world have been sat patiently to see #DoctorWho back on their screens. The BBC made the internet have a breakdown when they announced that series 10 of Doctor Who would not be taking place in 2016. Due to sporting events such as the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and the Euro 2016, fans were left devastated when they were told the annual Christmas Special will be the only Doctor Who adventure of 2016.
Friday 18th November 2016 is the BBC's biggest night ever, as the United Kingdom raise millions for the children that need it the most. As ever, Doctor Who played its part for the charity by releasing an exclusive sneak peak of the festive episode that is to come this year. In the past, Doctor Who have filmed exclusive minisodes in aid of Children in Need. From Peter Davison returning as the 5th Doctor, to the 11th Doctor (Matt Smith) parking the TARDIS inside the TARDIS! As the years went by, the BBC decided to stop making exclusive Children in Need clips and started rolling out Christmas Special previews to get fans in the Christmas spirit!
