Stand by for an announcement….of an announcement!
Seriously though….the BBC has announced that the actor to play the 12th Doctor will be announced on a Live TV Special, entitled Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor that will air at 7:00 PM (in the UK) on Sunday and 2 pm ET LIVE on BBC AMERICA.
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.
Current Doctor Matt Smith and lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat will both give interviews about one of the biggest roles in TV and set out just what it takes to be the Doctor.
They even made at trailer for the show. You can find out more about the special here.
