At short notice it has been announced by the BBC that there will be a specially written mini-Doctor Who story for Comic Relief this year. Although there have been several special Children in Need adventures this will be the first for Comic Relief since "The Curse of the Fatal Death" back in 1999 whilst the show was on its rather long hiatus. Like "Curse of the Fatal Death" this years special has been written by Steven Moffatt and will feature The Doctor, Amy and Rory. It will be screened during the live charity appeal on 18th March 2011 and will consist of two, four minute episodes (yup, there will be a cliffhanger).

If you missed the segment with Chris Hardwick and "Bridger" recorded at Gallifrey One for the late night show, Graeme Sheridan @The2ndDoctor has embedded a YouTube video of it in his post, Gallifrey One on the Craig Ferguson Show. (Watch it while you can in case it is pulled off of YouTube).
Chris Hardwick presented his report on Gallifrey one last night on the Craig Ferguson Show. Tara Wheeler @TARDIS_Tara and her TARDIS make up the end of the report. Plus a special appearance from the Head of Pertwee.
