Doctor Who: 13th Doctor to be revealed this Saturday

The 13th Doctor is to be unveiled following coverage of the Wimbledon men's final on Sunday afternoon.

The announcement will follow the Wimbledon men's tennis final, which means the exact time isn't yet confirmed. With Capaldi we got instant classics like Heaven Sent, Listen, and Face the Raven.

The new Doctor will be the 13th incarnation of the character and will replace Peter Capaldi, who will wrap up his third series in the roll with the upcoming Christmas special.

This new Doctor isn't the only change coming to the long running BBC series.

And that's not the only replacement in the works: Showrunner Steven Moffat is also on his way out, to be replaced by Broadchurch scribe Chris Chibnall in Season 11. Chibnall was head writer on Who spinoff Torchwood, along with writing 5 episodes of Who itself His credits include 42, The Hungry Earth, Cold Blood, The Power of Three, and Dinosaurs on a Spaceship.

Talk about who will become number 13 has been a major topic this time around. "Broadchurch" star Jodie Whittaker has also been given good odds. "And I genuinely - I'm not making it up - I don't know who it is". Moffat and co. settled with a female Master for Capaldi, but there are strong indications the next Doctor will be a woman. Close behind is Kris Marshall, who was favored to land the role earlier this year.

But, as of now, fans just have to sit back and wait as (whether you are happy by this or not) by end of day Sunday we will know who the next "Doctor Who" is.
