Yesterday during the UK annual tennis screening on BBC television a teaser for the Thirteenth Doctor was shown. It revealed that on Sunday we will get to see the new actor to play the Thirteenth Doctor in Doctor Who.
The tease of the video was the number thirteen appearing is various scenes. Most of these where British iconic settings but they also included the Statue of Liberty in New York with a Thirteen in place of the flame and a desert with thirteens embossed in the sand dunes.
The announcement video tells UK viewers to watch the Men’s Wimbledon Tennis final on Sunday and when it finishes there will be a chance to meet the thirteenth Doctor. What form this will take we don’t know. The new actor will be first seen in the show in the Christmas Special.
At the end of the tenth season of the latest run of Doctor Who we got a tease for the Christmas Special. That showed out going Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, meeting the original Doctor! So this story will actually have three Doctors, although we guess the regeneration will be held off until the end.
Those attending the San Diego Comic-Con on Judy 25th 2017 the Doctor Who panel will give fans an exclusive sneak peek of the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas Special. They will also be able to see in person award-winning star Peter Capaldi (the Doctor), Pearl Mackie (Bill) and Matt Lucas (Nardole). Also on the the panel will be Michelle Gomez (Missy), writer and actor/writer Mark Gatiss and showrunner Steven Moffat.
