We’ve been hearing for a while that Peter Capaldi’s replacement on Doctor Who may already have been cast (here).. . but now it has come to light that the replacement may indeed have been found.

Former Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies, speaking at the LGBT awards (below) was asked if the new Doctor was cast and he replied: “I do know who it is”.

Davies obviously couldn’t reveal who it was but with the Christmas Special filming going into production next week and it being expected to be when Capaldi says goodbye to the role, we’re expecting that an official announcement will be coming.

The BBC has enjoyed broadcasting a TV spot over the past years nearer Christmas to announce the next regeneration of the world’s most famous Timelord, so that may be how it goes this year too…

The replacement will properly take over in series 11, after his regeneration at  Christmas, which is expected to air in 2018.

As for how it might happen, scroll on down…

In related news, an interesting new theory has popped up online suggesting that the Doctor has been dying – or been mid-regeneration –  for several episodes now and we have to admit, it does make sense…

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….
