Could this be the tweet that puts an end (until next time) to the chatter among a noisy minority for a female incarnation of the Doctor?
Although there are still a few hours to go before we get to see the unveiling of Matt Smith’s replacement in the international simulcast of Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor, a major clue has been released – perhaps intentionally.
Apparently shooting publicity snaps of the actor set to be unveiled as the Twelfth Doctor later today, photographer Rankin tweeted this:
Just photographed the next Dr Who for tonight's announcement. Let me know what you think of the photo? He's going to be an ace Dr.
