BBC1 will be holding a very special Doctor Who episode for their Children in Need appeal efforts.

In this special one-off episode of Doctor Who, it will be the first time fans get to see Matt Smith debut in his new role as the 11th Time Lord.

It’s only a 15-minute episode that will air in November but in this special episode, we will see all 11 renditions of the good Doctor brought together.

In the story of this mini-episode, David Tennant needs some help to complete a mission, and the other 10 lend a helping hand.

Some Doctors are not amongst the living, but images from older Doctor Who episodes from 1966 to 1974 will be used to include them in the adventure.  Those are images of William Hartnell, Jon Pertwee and Patrick Troughton.

Children in Need is an organization that helps change the lives of disadvantaged children across the UK and for this special episode, the stars have waived their usual fees.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen multiple Doctors in one place.  In 1983, 5 Doctors united for a previous rendition of a Children in Need special. In 1993, Doctors 3 through 7 reunited for a similar cause.

Goes to show you that no matter how much trouble the universe is in, you always have time for good charities.

At the moment, details have not been finalized for the episode.
