The nextDoctor Who is set to be announced this Sunday, August 4 live on BBC One!
Following Matt Smith's exit, Zoe Ball will interview the 12th Doctor for the first time in front of a live studio audience set against the backdrop of a swirling vortex and amongst Daleks and the TARDIS.
The half-hour show, called Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor, will include live special guests, Doctors old and new, as well as companions and celebrity fans.
It will also feature clips and moments from across the show's 50 year history.
Smith and lead writer / executive producer Steven Moffat will both give interviews about one of the biggest roles in TV and set out just what it takes to be the Doctor.
Steven Moffat revealed: “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.”
Charlotte Moore, Controller BBC One stated: “BBC One is the home of big live events and this special live show is the perfect way to reveal the identity of the next Doctor and share it with the nation. The Doctor is a truly iconic role and I’m more than excited about the booking”
Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning concluded: “We can't wait to unveil the next Doctor with everyone live on BBC1 on Sunday night. Amongst all the speculation and betting, there has been lots of fun and intrigue at work as we've been using the codename Houdini as a decoy!
"It’s the biggest secret in showbiz, even those working with the new Doctor on other projects at the moment have no idea they are in the presence of the 12th incarnation.”
