The answer to Doctor Who’s biggest current mystery is set to be answered on Sunday. The BBC has confirmed that the identity of the next Time Lord, the 13th Doctor, will be announced on Sunday, once the Wimbledon men’s singles final is complete. The announcement will be made on BBC One.
That’s all we know we so far. Kris Marshall is the current running favourite for the role, and whoever the new Doctor is will make their debut in this year’s Christmas special.
Place your bets, folks. It’s almost time. The identity of Peter Capaldi’s replacement in the TARDIS will be known shortly…
