The untitled Children in Need Special episode of Doctor Who Confidential was broadcast in conjunction with Time Crash.

As with Time Crash, this was a benefit production for the Children in Need charity and the cast and crew's time were donated. Russell T Davies noted that the production (for both Time Crash and this Confidential) took place on a Sunday, which would normally have been a day off.

This episode was produced without narration. In place of closing titles, the telephone number for donations was shown.
