Matt Smith's 'Doctor Who' costume to be auctioned for 'Children In Need'
Tomorrow's charity special will also feature a sneak peek of the Christmas special
Matt Smith's Doctor Who costume is to be auctioned for Children In Need.
The BBC's annual charity telethon takes place tomorrow (November 18) and fans will get the chance to win the outfit the 11th Doctor specifically wore in the Neil Gaiman-penned episode from this year, The Doctor's Wife.
Details will be revealed as part of a special skit sketch written by Steven Moffat, and the auction will then open. Smith said: "I'd say the tweed jacket or the bow-tie are the most iconic - although the boots are my personal favourite. I hope people donate generously for BBC Children In Need because it's a wonderful cause - and we’ve got to beat last year's total."
The auction will run through BBC.co.uk/Pudsey and stay open until Monday, November 21. The successful bidder will also win a copy of the sketch script, signed by Moffat and Smith.
Children In Need will also see the title of this year's Doctor Who Christmas special revealed, and viewers will get a sneak peak of the festive adventure.
