This Friday night is the BBC’s Children in Need telethon, which aims to raise money for, well, children in need all over the world. As is fast becoming a tradition, there will be an exciting bit of exclusive Doctor Who footage to see on the night, in the form of a preview of this year’s Christmas Special.

And as a preview to that preview, they’ve released this picture showing, for the first time, the Doctor meeting The Father (Christmas). We’ve already seen Nick Frost in action as Santa, right at the end of the season finale “Death in Heaven” and in the current trailer, but this promises to be a little more interactive.
