The New Doctor?

Or just the trailer for the 50th anniversary episode?

Or something else entirely?

I wish it was Henry Cavill

Or the one that plays Alice in 'Luther' - she's fab

Well, as I can't sleep in the 'orrible 'eat, I'll probably be awake and poised to post about it.

I heard the announcement for the new Doctor is at 7pm on Sunday - Zoe Ball is presenting a programme on BBc1 and Moffet and the new bod will be on it. Read it on a forum though so would have to search out a credible source.

Found it... They mention the midnight thing too, but seem to think it'll be an announcement about the Sunday Live show. Have a look here

There's absolutely nothing apart from the date of the anniversary special on the bbc site. However Twitter has got hold of it and run a marathon with supposed leaks...
If they're true it looks like the new Doctor will be known pretty soon.

Remembering how they did it last time, that seems the most likely thing MrsD

Marking my place so when I get up in the morning I can find out what it is! I cant stay up til midnight!

I don't want to stay up until midnight but I fear in this heat I will regardless.

I've seen a lot of speculation on other sites tonight suggesting that Chris O'Dowd will be the next Doctor.

MissMilliment Thu 01-Aug-13 23:50:23

I think Tilda Swinton should be the next Doctor - she's ace.

I'd too seen that its going to be announced at 7pm on Sunday.

DioneTheDiabolist Thu 01-Aug-13 23:53:24

Sooo excited.

DioneTheDiabolist Thu 01-Aug-13 23:53:38

Shamelessly marking place and much more excited than I should feel at this time of the night. Matt Smith was a bit of a letdown after David Tennant but I persevered and can't wait to find out what's next.

Soooo excited.grin
