It’s Almost Time! ‘Doctor Who’: 13th Doctor to be Revealed on Sunday

Great Gallifrey’s Ghost! The BBC announced that the actor who will play the 13th Doctor will be revealed this Sunday, July 16, on BBC One, after the men’s final match ends at Wimbledon.

Behold the announcement trailer:

After Peter Capaldi announced his exit as the titular Time Lord back in January, Whovians spent months anticipating and speculating as to who would become the Thirteenth Doctor.

Top picks to play the Thirteenth Doctor have been a vast array of actors, of different genders and ethnic backgrounds. Some of the top contenders to fill Capaldi’s TARDIS include Tilda Swinton, Kris Marshall, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Whomever it may be, we need not wait much longer!

The actor is set to take over from Peter Capaldi this December in the Christmas special, which will be the final episode for Capaldi and series showrunner Steven Moffat.

The actor and new head writer Chris Chibnall will officially take over for the episode’s final scene (where The Doctor will regenerate into the 13th incarnation) before returning for a full series some time next year.

Any last-minute thoughts as to who will regenerate into the 13th Doctor? Share in the comments!

Michael E. Fromm is an all-around scrivener, writing screenplays (short and feature), short stories, novels, poetry, blogs, articles, and press releases. Since first learning to hold a pen, he has done little but read, watch, and write about characters and worlds of fantasy. It would be very difficult to find him without a pen in hand and an idea in mind, which is problematic for anyone wanting to have a conversation with him. Michael graduated from Rowan University, primarily focusing on improving his skills as a filmmaker and screenwriter. After said schooling, he joined an elite force of Rowan grads who also had the notion of becoming filmmakers. This group, known as Justice Productions, call on him every so often to write short films. And, until this whole writing thing pays off, Michael currently does development & marketing communication (writing, graphic & publication design, social media and website upkeep, etc.) for a web development company in Central New Jersey, where he currently resides.
