Doctor Who: 2012 Christmas Special Trailer & Prequel Confirmed for Children in Need

The BBC Media Centre have released the press pack for this year's BBC Children in Need night, and amongst all the special guest stars and music performances is special treat for Doctor Who fans, read on for further details: 

BBC One announce today that the BBC Children in Need appeal show returns on Friday 16th November, live once more from BBC Television Centre. Sir Terry Wogan will be joined by Fearne Cotton, Tess Daly plus Nick Grimshaw to host a bigger than ever, spectacular night of musical entertainment, sketches, special features, glitz, glamour and guest appearances.

This year’s appeal night will be the pinnacle of a vast range of programming contributing to the 2012 BBC Children in Need campaign. The biggest names in entertainment will come together to support the appeal and help to raise money for disadvantaged children in the UK. 

The star-studded evening of entertainment will feature music performances from One Direction who kick off the programme, plus Little Mix, Susan Boyle, Leona Lewis, The Script, Paloma Faith, Il Divo and Tim Minchin. Pop superstars Girls Aloud will also reunite live in the studio for the exclusive first TV performance of their much anticipated official Children in Need 2012 single entitled "Something New".

Britain’s Got Talent 2012 winner Pudsey the dog will finally meet his namesake, Children in Need’s own Pudsey bear, for an exclusive dance performance extravaganza.

Around 20 of Britain’s Olympic and Paralympic heroes including Tom Daley, Rebecca Adlington, Louis Smith, David Weir, Nicola Adams and Ellie Simmonds will be throwing shapes in their very own music video set to Basement Jaxx’s "Do Your Thing" - including a special section featuring Zara Phillips and her 3 Day Eventing teammates dancing the "Gangnam Style". 

Strictly Come Dancing viewers’ favourites Ann Widdecombe and Russell Grant will return to the dance floor on a wing and a prayer for an unmissable performance with their partners Anton Du Beke and Flavia Cacace. 

Doctor Who, featuring Matt Smith, will also bring viewers an extra special prequel to its Christmas special, with a bespoke storyline made for Children in Need, and an exclusive preview trailer of the Christmas special including the first glimpse of the Doctor with his new companion. There will also be an exclusive preview of the Call The Midwife Christmas special.

The BBC Newsreaders, Fiona Bruce, Sophie Raworth and Bill Turnbull, will be pitting their driving skills against each other in a special edition of Top Gear’s ‘Star in a reasonably priced car’. A host of comedy specials will also feature including an exclusive episode of Not Going Out with Lee Mack featuring a cameo appearance from Sir Terry Wogan himself.

The action will spread across the country, as presenter and former chorister Aled Jones leads The Choir, which once more unites children across the UK's nations and regions and leads a 2,500 strong chorus of young singers in an unforgettable performance of "Bridge Over Troubled Water".

Viewers will also get a rare treat as pop princess Kylie Minogue performs reworkings of some of her classic hits accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra, filmed at Proms in the Park in Hyde Park earlier this summer. Also EastEnder Shona McGarty (who plays Whitney) will be singing an extra special number.

The evening will feature films highlighting some of the vital work the charity is doing to change the lives of children throughout the UK. Fearne Cotton will introduce an appeal film on bullying and Robbie Williams will help tell the moving story of a family supported by Children in Need through a time of grief. Olympian Tom Daley will front a film about a teenage hero who has been helped by Children in Need and EastEnders actress Nina Wadia (who plays Zainab) meets a little boy whose life has been transformed by Children in Need’s “Friendship" project.

Totaliser updates will be dotted throughout the night to keep viewers up to date with the total amount raised.

Sir Terry Wogan, Children in Need Life President says: "Children in Need as ever is graced by the presence of lovely ladies Tess and Fearne, and this year I'll be delighted to welcome Radio 1's morning star, Nick Grimshaw, to prop me up as the Friday appeal stretches into Saturday, and we head for what we hope will be another record-breaking total for the people’s charity. Every year of Children in Need is a shining tribute to the extraordinary generosity of the British people.''

Clare Pizey, BBC executive producer, says: “This year’s Children in Need is bigger and more ambitious than ever. I am delighted with the spectacular line-up who will come together to help raise money for the children who need it most, plus the fantastic addition of Nick Grimshaw to the presenting team. This is just a taste of what is to come, viewers can look forward to a few more extra special surprises on the night too. We will be asking the nation to call in with their pledges before the night is done, to help make this is an even more successful year for the charity.”

David Ramsden, BBC Children in Need chief executive, added: “This year's Campaign is bigger and better than ever and people right across the country are once again coming together to raise thousands that will help change the lives of disadvantaged children right here in the UK.”

Children in Need night will broadcast live from BBC Television Centre on Friday 16th November from 7:00pm on BBC One and BBC One HD. Doctor Who returns this Christmas also on BBC One and BBC One HD.

Doctor Who: New Audio CDs - Covers & Info

BBC Audio have revealed the covers and synopsis of two new exclusive Doctor Who audio CDs:

SLEEPERS IN THE DUST - written by Darran Jones, read by Arthur Darvill
The Tardis touches down on Nadurniss, a planet under quarantine. A joint Nadurni/human mission has recently landed on the planet to survey it for possible re-colonisation. Two millennia have passed since the Nadurni Empire fell at the end of the Prokarian War, and Nadurniss seems to be a lifeless, barren world - but a mysterious illness is infecting the Nadurni, and now the whole team is in danger. 

The nature of the infection becomes clear when the sickest Nadurni dies and an amorphous creature emerges from its dried-up body. A shambling mound of bacteria, acting as one being - a Prokarian - it has been on the planet all along, sleeping in the dust. As the Prokarians attack, Amy is infected. The Doctor can do nothing to help her - until he realises that the cure could lie in the past. He and Rory must travel back more than 2000 years to try and save her life...

SNAKE BITE - written by Scott Handcock, read by Frances Barber
After a lifetime spent working on her secret project, Doctor Elehri Mussurana and her husband, Ernst Wharner, watch in awe as their experiment reaches its final, glorious fruition. A wormhole in time and space is being created… then the unexpected occurs: inside the swirling vortex appears a tall blue box… 

Potential disaster awaits the Doctor, Rory and Amy as the Tardis arrives in a scientific research outpost far into the future just as the fabric of reality is ripped at the seams and the universe tears in two…

Doctor Who: Sleepers in the Dust is on sale from 1st November and Snake Bite from 6th December and at all good CD stores priced £9.25 per copy.

Doctor Who: Cleric Wars App

AppGear have released information of a new Doctor Who app game involving the Q.L.A Anti-Time Device:

Q.L.A QUANTUM LOCK ACCELERATOR ANTI-TIME DEVICE
After the Doctor disappeared, the Cybermen and Daleks went to war across the universe. And on each world they destroyed, they left in their wake, Stone Angels, picking over the dead and dying. But the Cleric army fought back and scoured the dead worlds left after the wars, looking for the wreckage of Daleks, Cybermen, and broken Angels to create a hugely powerful ‘anti-time’ device. A device part Dalek, part Cyber technology and using the Quantum signature from the Stone Angel to trigger a Gateway to pull enemies into the time Vortex…Erasing them from Time completely.

LOCK AND LOAD
As Earth nears total destruction by alien forces, you must join the Cleric army and battle through multiple waves of enemies: Daleks, Cybermen and Angels in a last-ditch mission to save the planet.

IMMERSIVE CONTROLS
The immersive controls use a first-person viewpoint with pan function. To defeat an enemy you need to aim the Q.L.A and fire at it until a vortex opens up and pulls it in. The head up display (H.U.D) helps you locate your enemies. Their general location is indicated by coloured icons near the centre of the target that light up to indicate which way to turn to locate them.

AMPLIFIED REALITY

Battle enemies in your own room! Dalek, Cybermen and Angels appear in your actual location on screen via amplified reality.

DON’T HAVE YOUR OWN Q.L.A.?
Going head to head with Daleks, Cybermen and Angels? You won’t get far without your own Doctor Who Q.L.A. Quantum Lokk Accelerator Anti-Time Device. Test out the free demo level to see what these famous foes are made of, and then head over to the website to learn how you can get your hands on a Q.L.A.


The app is on sale now from iTunes and Google as a free download.
