Christmas has come early for Doctor Who. In tonight’s Children in Need fundraising marathon we’ll be treated to a sneak peek of the Doctor Who Christmas special starring Nick Frost as Father Christmas.

We’ve already seen a tantalising trailer for the Christmas special, with Peter Capaldi shouting into the snow, “It’s Christmas! Who you gonna call?”

But tonight we’re hoping for much more as part of the Children in Need extravaganza following the release this week of the first picture of Frost as good old Saint Nick:

But when is it on? Well, what do know is you will have to be in your seat by 7.30pm. You might have to sit through a performance of musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory first (no hardship), but we can guarantee Doctor Who will make an appearance between 7.30pm and 8pm. 


Christmas is coming. Be ready.
