Doctor Who to Reveal Twelfth Doctor This Sunday
Doctor Who fans, set your DVRs — or just hang out on TVLine.com on Sunday — because that’s when the Twelfth Doctor will be revealed.
The identity of the actor — or will it be an actress, as John Barrowman hopes? — taking over for departing star Matt Smith will be unmasked during a live special airing Aug. 4 at 2 pm ET on BBC America and BBC One.
“The decision is made and the time has come to reveal who’s taking over the TARDIS,” executive producer Steven Moffat said in a statement. “For the last of the Time Lords, the clock is striking twelve.”
In addition to featuring the first interview with the new Time Lord, Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor will host special guests, including past Docs, companions and celeb fans of the sci-fi series.
Smith, who will also appear on the program, makes his penultimate appearance in the 50th Anniversary special, airing Nov. 23, before regenerating into the Twelfth Doctor in the Christmas Special.
