The Next Doctor- We May Find Out on Sunday!
The mystery we have all been trying to solve is about to be revealed. The next Doctor is supposed to be announced on August 4th!!
The rumors are flying. The official announcement for the program, entitled Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor, is expected to come at midnight tonight, but it seems that some BBC employees have let some secrets slip already.
"We can’t wait to unveil the next Doctor with everyone live on BBC1 on Sunday night. Amongst all the speculation and betting, there has been lots of fun and intrigue at work as we’ve been using the codename Houdini as a decoy! It’s the biggest secret in showbiz, even those working with the new Doctor on other projects at the moment have no idea they are in the presence of the 12th incarnation." - Ben Stephenson
Even Stephen Moffat seems to be confirming- "The decision is made and the time has come to reveal who’s taking over the TARDIS. For the last of the Time Lords, the clock is striking twelve.’Moffat and Smith will both give interviews during the show, commenting on the role and what they believe it takes to play the Doctor.Fans in America will be able to watch the unveiling live via simulcast on BBC America." – Steven Moffat
Is this really it?? There have been rumors in the past about expected announcements, and they turned out to be nothing. Moffat is notorious for leaking fake information, as well. But, this looks promising. Fingers crossed!
