After being somewhat evasive about the Doctor Who topic on everyone’s mind at SDCC recently, Steven Moffat and the BBC have unveiled that they will be announcing the next actor to portray the next incarnation of the Doctor in an unprecedented live event to be shown on television across the world.
In the UK, the announcement will be screened on BBC One on Sunday, August 4 at 7:00 PM; while U.S. fans will get the live broadcast at 2:00 PM EST on Sunday, August 4 on BBC America.
If you’re unable to tune in, Geeks of Doom will be publishing the big reveal once the announcement is made; which will be followed by a special episode of the TARDISblend in which we will be discussing the new Doctor, as well as some of the other news and rumors that have been making the rounds.
There have been a broad range of suggestions, rumors, speculations, and ideas as to who the next Doctor may be, ranging from Patrick Stewart to Helen Mirren, and more recently from Peter Capaldi to Paterson Joseph.
Daniels is slightly older than the two previous Doctors, and has some solid acting chops. Additionally, he was one of the first names to pop up in rumors earlier in the year, well before Matt Smith announced he was leaving the show.
I guess we’ll find out Sunday if I am right! Keep checking Geeks of Doom for further updates, and be sure to listen to our special TARDISblend episode, which will be posted later that night.
