Doctor Who Christmas Preview To Be Shown For This November's Children in Need Telethon

The BBC have recently revealed that a brand new trailer for the upcoming Christmas Doctor Who specials will be included as part of this year's Children in Need telethon. Nightmares Reign and The End of Time (titles not confirmed) are due to be shown during December, with suggestions that Nightmares Reign will air on Christmas day and The End of Time will air on New Years Eve. This year's BBC Children in Need appeal will be shown on Friday the twentieth of November at 7:00pm on BBC One and will be hosted by Terry Wogan, Tess Daly and Alesha Dixon. In 2005 the telethon included a Doctor Who special in which The Doctor had just regenerated and was a bit ... high and excitable. However the next year, 2006, we did not have anything Doctor Who related as such, but David Tennant did star alongside Catherine Tate in a funny Doctor Who related sketch. Then 2007 gave us the fantastic Time Crash in which The Doctor met his fifth incarnation and then last year we were given a preview of The Next Doctor. This year will see the first ever official trailer for this year's Doctor Who Christmas specials. This also means that The Waters of Mars must be shown before the Christmas preview on the twentieth (14th?)

The official Doctor Who website this morning offered an exclusive first look at the new Doctor Who logo, which will accompany Matt Smith's on-screen debut as The Doctor in spring 2010.

The logo is the 11th to have been used on screen in the show's history.

Accompanying the logo at is an animated insignia of the show's initials, which will be used as branding for the new series in conjunction with the logo.

Steven Moffat, the new Lead Writer and Executive Producer, said: "A new logo. The 11th logo for the 11th Doctor – those grand old words, Doctor Who, suddenly looking newer than ever.

"And, look at that, something really new – an insignia! DW in TARDIS form! Simple and beautiful, and most important of all, a completely irresistible doodle.

"I apologise to school notebooks everywhere, because in 2010 that's what they're going to be wearing."

The logo, and a collection of old Doctor Who logos, is available to the media from BBC Picture Publicity website.

The new series of Doctor Who will premiere in spring 2010.

The final three episodes featuring David Tennant will be broadcast later this year on BBC One, with the existing logo on-screen.
