The fundraising telethon Children in Need is to return on Friday (14th November) on BBC One at 7pm. The BBC has confirmed that there will be a segment for Doctor Who. This has been the case since the show's revival back in 2005. Whether it will be in the form of a trailer or a mini-episode is currently unknown.

Children in Need have also launched an online auction on eBay, offering a once-in-a lifetime trip to the Doctor Who set in Cardiff and the chance to experience the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
An exclusive Doctor Who behind the scenes set visit!

The Doctor Who production team are kindly offering an incredible once-in-a-lifetime experience for two lucky Whovians! The winning bidder plus a friend will go behind the scenes of filming for an episode of the next series, and see Peter Capaldi in action in his latest outing as The Doctor.

The winner of this package will experience:

  • Watching filming for an episode of the new series of Doctor Who
  • A conducted VIP tour of the set
  • Meeting the cast of the show (this is dependent on schedules, specific requests unfortunately cannot be guaranteed)
  • Having a photo taken on the set
  • A nice lunch with the crew

The location for filming will be confirmed at a later date by the Doctor Who production team. You will need to arrange your own transport to and from the experience plus any accommodation. The experience will take place on a date determined by the production team in 2015. The winning bidder will also need to sign a non-disclosure agreement to ensure that the new series remains a secret!

The winning bidder will be contacted by BBC Children in Need within 5 working days of payment reaching our PayPal account to confirm your package. Your details will then be passed on to the Doctor Who production team who will arrange the day with you. The BBC reserves the right to change the package.

Every single penny raised by the auction will go towards making a positive difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people right here in the UK.

Thank you for supporting BBC Children in Need

Place your bids to experience a day with Radio 3’s Orchestra in Wales, BBC National Orchestra of Wales:

Then get the chance to ask all of those questions you’ve been storing up over coffee with Ben Foster. After coffee you’ll be whisked off to join the BBC National Chorus of Wales in their seats and experience the rehearsal from within, make sure you’re nicely warmed up as you’ll even get the opportunity to sing along if you wish (subject to date/rehearsing schedule).
