The 13th Doctor Who Will Be Announced This Weekend!
So much is happening this weekend! D23 Expo, the season premiere of Game of Thrones, and now BBC’s announcement of the 13th Doctor for Doctor Who! Commence freaking out now. We’ll wait.
The announcement came via Twitter early Friday afternoon, which you can see below. The tweet reads “Exclusive News: It’s Almost Time” and is accompanied with a teaser video of the TARDIS’ key and the number 13 showing up in the most uncanny of places all over the world.

Frankly, I wasn’t expecting this news to come so soon after the Series 10 finale, which originally aired on BBC America almost two weeks ago. I’m not ready to let go of Peter Capaldi! Thankfully, he’ll be returning as the Doctor one last time for the Christmas special.
The official announcement of who will be playing the 13th Doctor Who (14th if you wish to count John Hurt’s War Doctor) will happen after the Wimbledon Men’s Final this Sunday, July 16, 2017. The ratings for that game are going to go through the roof.
Who do you think it’ll be?!
