Press sources have leaked that the BBC will finally announce the 12th Doctor this weekend – LIVE.

A special programme on will air this Sunday, 4th August at 7pm on BBC1 entitled Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor. A deliberate placeholder repeat of Celebrity Mastermind is currently listed in the timeslot.

The show is going to be filmed in front of a live studio audience with Zoe Ball unveiling the next Doctor. The show will also feature interviews with past Doctors and companions.

With so many actors and actresses rumored for the part since current Doctor Matt Smith announced he was stepping down, fans are awaiting the announcement with bated breath.  Will it be Rory Kinnear, Sheridan Smith, or even new favourite Peter Capaldi?  Unlikely, but you never know…

The BBC are expected to officially confirm the programme via a press release at midnight.

Could Peter Capaldi be the 12th Time Lord?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
