More Indications of a Twelfth Doctor Reveal Sunday!

Earlier today, it transpired that the BBC is possibly planning on moving/dropping the scheduled episode of Celebrity Mastermind on Sunday evening, an action that might well be in order to broadcast a special Doctor Who related show in its place.

Doctor Who's 2013 LogoEarlier this week we reported on a rumour doing the rounds concerning a special edition of Doctor Who Confidential to be broadcast on Sunday evening, within which the identity of the Twelfth Doctor would be revealed. This move would echo the way in which Matt Smith was unveiled as David Tennant’s successor in January 2009.

As related by Starburst, the news that Celebrity Mastermind might be moved on Sunday to make way for a special show was quickly backtracked when it was revealed that the news was embargoed until midnight. MSN Entertainment soon tweeted:

Rather than the planet being turned inside out with news of the Twelfth Doctor’s earthly nom de plume, however, the consensus is that midnight’s announcement will only confirm the broadcast of a special Doctor Who show – the one we informed our readers about earlier this week.

The likelihood is – given the secrecy we’re witnessing – that the show (hosted by Zoe Ball and advertised as a 50th anniversary celebration) will be the platform for which a male or female actor (probably the former, from what we’re hearing) to be unveiled as the next face in the TARDIS.
