Doctor Who: The 13th Doctor Will be Revealed this Sunday!

Doctor Who: The 13th Doctor Will be Revealed this Sunday!

It's been a long road - one of the longest in Doctor Who casting history - to learning the identity of the next Doctor, although that hasn't stopped months of wild rumour mongering, and names as varied as Tilda Swinton and Kris Marshall being thrown in the hat for the next Time Lord. With that, all eyes are now turning to who will replace Capaldi as the number thirteen.

The 60-second clip shows the number 13 in a number of iconic locations across Britain including Downing Street and the White Cliffs of Dover.

No words are spoken throughout, and it is only until the very end that the message announcing that you can meet the 13th Doctor this Sunday after the tennis match was shown.

The next actor to play the Doctor will be announced on Sunday after the Wimbledon Men's Final on BBC One.

Unsurprisingly this comes with a lot of mixed reactions from fans of the BBC show, as some have wanted to know ever since the ending of season 10 so is undoubtedly excited by this announcement. Speculation has been tossed around for a few regenerations now that the next Doctor would be a woman, ranging back to when Billie Piper was up for the role of 11.

Currently, the betting odds look like they will go that way. "Broadchurch" star Jodie Whittaker has also been given good odds.

For months speculation has run rampant over the identity of the next Doctor, with Kris Marshall now being favourite to take the sonic screwdriver reins.

What we do know is that no matter who the new Doctor is, all signs point to this weekend being the first time that they've made an appearance in some sort of official capacity - including on the show's set.

Doctor Who fans are going to find out who will be the face of their favorite Sci-Fi character on Sunday.
