This Friday ‘Doctor Who’ fans will be treated to a special preview of the ‘Doctor Who’ Christmas special.

This has become something of an annual event now with Doctor Who and was inevitable given that ‘Doctor Who’ has had a special relationship with the annual fundraiser, which started back in the 1980s when Children In Need premiered the 20th Anniversary episode ‘The Five Doctors’ in 1983.

The special broadcast is scheduled to go live at roughly 7:30pm on BBC ONE.

In the festive episode, Capaldi will be joined by companion Clara (Jenna Coleman), as well as guest stars Natalie Gumede, Nathan McMullen, Michael Troughton and Faye Marsay.

So set your Tivo Boxes for November 14 at between 7:30pm and 8PM just to make sure you get the whole thing. Sometimes it can start a few minutes late due to everything being pretty much live, but it will likely be shown a few times throughout the night.
