BBC To Announce 12th ‘Doctor Who’ This Sunday


Unless you’ve been living in a distant universe with no television or media, there’s a new Doctor Who on the way in the form of the 12th Doctor. However, will it be one of the many listed out there and will they be male, female, black, white or maybe a cat with an uncanny talking ability and a brilliant quirky appeal? I’d vote for the latter for a little while but figured it’d get a bit boring when they were constantly getting distracted by Catnip. If you like the cat idea, just click here for some great items.

Rory Kinnear has been flung around as a possible for quite  a while among others but it’d be unusual for the Who team to go for a better-known name, so lets’ hope to expect surprises all around. My vote goes for someone who’s already been involved and – off the top of my head – why not David Harewood from the Tennant-era and now Homeland-less, or maybe Peter Capaldi as very possible ‘names’.

Check out the official announcement:

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. Excitement will reach fever pitch as they speculate and recall their favourites, plus feature clips and moments from across the show’s 50 year history.

Keep up to date with all the latest news about the show and special guests as we build to the big climax over the next few days and follow, @ BBCOne and @bbcdoctorwho and

The show will be simulcast live on BBC America.  Doctor Who is produced by BBC Cymru Wales.
