When Will 12th Doctor Be Announced?

11-doctors-12-doctorHow much longer are we going to have to wait for the 12th Doctor to be announced? That’s the question.

The Radio Times, who originally claimed it would be July, are now saying it will be late summer/ early autumn.

They state:

BBC insiders have told that filming on the Christmas special – to be followed by the full series – will not take place until the autumn – probably August, or even September.

According to sources the identity of the Twelfth Doctor is almost certain to be announced just prior to filming, which means that it is very likely that the new incarnation of the Time Lord will not be unveiled until late summer.

Initially the BBC had hoped to begin filming the Christmas special earlier, with some sources suggesting July as a potential date.

“Suffice to say we are completely on track,” said a spokeswoman.

So assuming this is correct (and things are still rather vague), it looks like we’re in for another couple of months of rumours and speculation.
