Twelfth Doctor Announcement Coming Sunday?

Rumours on Twitter today suggest that the BBC is gearing up to reveal the identity of the Twelfth Doctor this Sunday in a special edition of Doctor Who Confidential!


Although listings magazines have Celebrity Mastermind scheduled at 7pm, this is a repeat and is therefore easily pulled. The slot is usually occupied by Countryfile, which is this week on at 8pm.

Details, of course, are sketchy, but there has long been a rumour of an August reveal. Sunday is August 4th, and with the Christmas episode set to enter production:

…we reckon Sunday is as good a time as any for an announcement to be made before the name of the Twelfth Doctor appears in the press as he turns up to a read through.

Several names have been mooted to us, from Anthony Head and Peter Capaldi to Ben Miller and Daniel Rigby.

But which one will it be?
