#TheFavoritesOfDoctorWho Day Seven Companion Post

Favorite Children In Need Special:

"The Five Doctors" was the very first Doctor Who Children in Need special. It aired on November 25th 1983 in the UK. ( It actually aired in the US first, two days earlier on the actually 20th anniversary, though a few things apparently were left out in the US broadcast)

If you don't know what "Children in Need" is..... it is a charity that BBC do each year, in November,  since 1980. It benefits disabled children. Since starting in 1980 it has raised £600 million (which is about $997 million). Here is the site for more information about this great charity : BBC Children in Need. Also if you want to donate to this charity Go here :Children In Need- Donate.

The Five Doctor story is a multi-Doctor story during the 5th Doctor story. It is a bit of a misnomer, seeing how the 4th Doctor isn't in it. ( He  and Romona II was in a short scene at the beginning and at the end, that was just clips from Shada)   I don't want to get too much in this story, I do plan on writing up a blog post on this story sometime in the future.

So that is it for now.
