Moffat recently told Entertainment Weekly that even he didn't know the identity of the actor who will play the Thirteenth Doctor.
The BBC has announced that fans will get the official reveal of the new Doctor Who, the 13th Doctor in the series, on Sunday, July 16 following the Wimbledon Men's Final. Now it's just going to be a few more days until we see if any of those rumors will play out, or if our next Doctor is an entirely new face. It has always been known that his last show will be this year's special Christmas episode, at the end of which his Time Lord will "regenerate" into the "Thirteenth Doctor", who will be played by a new cast member. Peter Capaldi was widely known to be the 12th Doctor, thanks to a flurry of bets from insiders that led British bookies to stop taking any more bets.More news: North Korea provocations hurt China-South Korea ties
Talk of a gender swap has been a constant since the 1980's when then producer John Nathan-Turner suggested outgoing Doctor, Tom Baker, could be replaced with a woman. It briefly settled on Phoebe Waller-Bridge, star of the hit comedy series Fleabag and an actor on the upcoming Han Solo movie. We will find out on Sunday.
