Many of us have speculated over who will be the next Doctor. Stephen Moffat has announced that we’ll will find out on Sunday night, during a LIVE interview on BBC1. (If anyone can record that and email it to me, you’ll be my favorite geek.)
Moffat announced at Comic Con, that “The clock has struck twelve.” So who will play the twelfth and final Doctor, of the new Doctor Who? With last season’s cliffhanger ending where John Hurt is revealed to be the next Doctor, many of us have hit the forums to discuss this very thing.
One long running theory was that John Hurt would play The Doctor’s inner dark – the Doctor that destroyed his home planet in The Time Wars. That is my personal favorite theory. However, Moffat has announced that people will be interviewed live, along side Matt Smith (Eleven and Twelve) and former companions, as well as celebrity fans.
An influx of bets with bookmakers has also pushed actor Peter Capaldi into the running. The 55-year-old Scottish actor would be the oldest of the modern Doctors, more in line with the age of first Doctor William Hartnell when he started in 1963.
So to our BBC1 watchers out there, this Sunday at 7 pm GMT, we will finally have an answer.
Until next time…. Run. Run you fellow Whovians, and remember.
