Big Announcement to Come, We Can’t Say What

At midnight tonight, this planet will be turned inside-out. There will be nothing le-. Oh, sorry. What I meant to say is that at midnight tonight, an embargo on a BBC press release will be lifted, and we will know…

The 11th Doctor with sonic

Well, we can’t actually tell you yet, but rest assured if you haven’t managed to catch a glimpse of the front pages of the Sunday papers on Sky News by then, you’re looking at (perhaps) one of the following:

  • Matt Smith is leaving Doctor Who
  • Steven Moffat is leaving his role as Executive Producer
  • A Doctor Who movie has been green lit
  • Doctor Who is moving production to Manchester/London
  • David Tennant is returning for Series 8

Now, even if we were 100% sure – and we’re not – we wouldn’t really be able to say. But most of fandom – if Twitter is any indication – seems to be resigned to the first.

Could we be approaching the time of the Twelfth Doctor?

We’ll know in a few hours time…

In the meantime, check out this Bleeding Cool article, in which they speculate:

According to our sources, the BBC are tonight going to announce that Matt Smith is leaving the show and that we’ll get a new Doctor as of August next year. They’ll also be announcing how many new episodes we’ll get, and it won’t be one of those cut-in-two seasons like we’ve just been through. In fact, we’ve heard talk that it’s going to run right up to a finale that is also the Christmas special.

We’ll be back at midnight – hope to see you then.

Update: More to think about…

Here are a couple of intriguing tweets. Or teases.

There is, of course, every chance that the news will be leaked early by one of the fansites or by a larger corporate entity. That’s if the Sunday paper previews don’t do it first…
