On Thursday, rumours suggested that the actor playing the 12th Doctor Who may be announced this weekend. Now the BBC have confirmed that fans will be able to find out Matt Smith’s successor in a live show at 7pm on Sunday.
The next Doctor will be revealed to the nation in a special one-off live television show hosted by Zoe Ball. The actor will then give their first ever interview in front of a live studio audience, the TARDIS and a few Daleks. Previous Doctors and companions will also be present for the announcement, which will take place after feature clips and a potted history of the show’s 50 years on British screens.
