It has been almost six months since Peter Capaldi announced he would be stepping down as the Doctor on the 30 January - almost the longest duration between a Doctor announcing his departure and his successor being revealed.
The BBC has announced the identity of the new Doctor - the 13th Time lord in the show's history - will be confirmed on BBC One after Saturday's Wimbledon Men's final.
A trailer featuring the number 13 in different locations was aired during the tennis on BBC One on Friday. A large number of actors have been rumored as possible replacements for Capaldi, including Love Actually star Kris Marshall and Phoebe Waller-Bridge from the TV show, Fleabag. Jodie Whittaker, who rose to fame in Broadchurch, and Tilda Swinton, who won a BAFTA award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role in 2008 for her performance in Michael Clayton, have also been touted as possible contenders. The actor admitted last week that his regeneration as the Time Lord will be "more complicated than recent ones" in an interview with the Radio Times.
