New Doctor Who Announcement: Coming Sunday!

by at . Comments

Consider the following date and time, Time Lord fans:

On Sunday at 2 p.m. EST, Doctor Who producers will announce the actor that will take over for Matt Smith in the title role of this iconic series. The casting will take place on BBC American and BBC One in Great Britain.

“The decision is made and the time has come to reveal who’s taking over the TARDIS. For the last of the Time Lords, the clock is striking twelve," said producer Steven Moffat in a press release.

Matt Smith announced a few weeks ago that he was stepping out of this role, effective after the 2013 Christmas special.

Sunday's half-hour show will therefore introduce us to the 12th-ever Doctor Who and he'll be interviewed in front of a live studio audience. Moffat and Smith will also be on hand.
