11th Doctor Announcement Imminent?

The Glasgow Evening Times goes further with the Robert Carlyle story claiming that an announcement will be made on Thursday of this week concerning the hotly anticipated casting of the 11th Doctor.

OK, so there’s no “source close to the show” quote so we need to be taking the news with a large pinch of salt… but it does coincide with what has traditionally been the press launch of the Christmas special – exactly one week before its shown.

So, this would be an excellent platform from which to make the announcement. If it doesn’t happen this week, then I would humbly suggest it would most likely be near to the transmission of the first of the specials for 2009 around Easter time.
