BBC to Announce the New Doctor Sunday, 2pm EST/11am PST

Posted on August 2, 2013 at 8:03 am by Amanda Andonian

EDIT: I accidentally reported that the news was breaking today. It’s actually coming out on Sunday. Sorry folks!

ZOMG! We will soon have confirmed news on who the new Doctor is! BBC One announced on their Twitter feed yesterday that they’re going to unveil the 12th Doctor during a special live TV event at 7pm in the UK on Sunday, August 4th, which will be 2pm on the East coast and 11am on the West coast. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited! Check out the info below.

From the press release:

In a special one-off live television event on BBC One this Sunday 4th August at 7pm, the next Doctor will be exclusively revealed to the nation.

Widely regarded as one of the most hotly contested roles in British television, the show’s host Zoe Ball will unveil the 12th Doctor in the first ever interview in front of a live studio audience set against the backdrop of a swirling vortex, amongst Daleks and the TARDIS.

The half hour show will include live special guests, Doctors old and new, as well as companions and celebrity fans.

Any thoughts on who it might be?!? I guess we’ll know in a few hours anyway, so why speculate! You can also check out the announcement on BBC One’s website.

      That tweet said “The last of the time lords”. Does that mean….the show is going to end soon???

      • No, they’re referring to the fact that the Doctor is the last Time Lord alive. Technically, he may not be because of the Master, but it’s generally understood that he’s the last of his race.
