This weekend, the BBC will reportedly announce the actor who will play the twelfth incarnation of The Doctor in “Doctor Who”.
The special program will reportedly screen on Sunday at 7pm BST on BBC1 and will be called “Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor”. It’s expected BBC America will simulcast the program.
Zoe Ball will present the special in front of a live audience, a special that will feature past Doctors and companions including Matt Smith.
As of now, the bookies favorite to play the next Doctor is 55-year-old actor Peter Capaldi (“The Thick of It,” “In the Loop,” “World War Z”). Capaldi will be familiar to fans – he previously had key roles in the fourth season episode “The Fires of Pompeii” and the Who-related “Torchwood: Children of Earth”.
