Doctor Who Children in Need 2018

Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor treated a young fan to a special Children In Need surprise that left viewers in floods of tears.


As part of the BBC telethon, nine-year-old Anna was invited to the set of the BBC sci-fi drama, where Whittaker and her co-stars Tosin Cole, Bradley Walsh and Mandip Gill surprised the little girl and her brother.

Anna, who has Cystic Fibrosis, was treated to a tour of the Tardis and was even kitted out in her own mini Doctor ensemble.

Fans absolutely loved the segment, which they described as “heartwarming.”

And for some the sight of Anna standing proudly alongside her hero was just too much to handle.

Who else is crying? *raises hand*

The special film was one of the highlights of the charity appeal’s TV celebration, which also featured the cast of EastEnders performing Disney’s greatest hits and Boyzone taking on the Strictly Come Dancing challenge.

Children in Need’s 2018 appeal raised a whopping £50,595,053 for charity, taking the campaign’s overall total to £1 billion since its first major appeal in 1980.
