This is a chance to hear Jodie whittaker’s voice as it is recorded and before it was processed for the album. Champion told her, “You sound amazing, so thank you for singing our song!” and Buckland declared, “I think she’s really good!”

Whittaker’s fellow Doctor Who actor David Tennant also sang for the album, as well as Doctor Who guest stars Olivia Colman and Shaun Dooley, who organized the fundraiser.

The Children in Need: Got It Covered television special will air on BBC One Wednesday, October 30 at 7:30 p.m.
