Doctor Who fans won't have to wait much longer for the reveal of the Thirteenth Doctor.

The BBC tweeted on Friday (July 14) that it will announce the identity of Doctor Who's new star on Sunday after the Wimbledon Men's Final.

Ever since Peter Capaldi announced that he would be leaving Doctor Who this Christmas back in January, the question on every fan's lips has been: who will replace him? Capaldi will regenerate in the upcoming Christmas episode.

Talk about who will become number 13 has been a major topic this time around. It's already been established that Time Lords can do this, with The Doctor's adversary The Master becoming Missy. Some believe that the first female actor may be about to step into the role, with Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the actress and creator of comedy series Fleabag, rumoured to be among the frontrunners, along with Kris Marshall, star of Death In Paradise. Or it could just be another white male, and if the actor is good and the right fit for the part (as the last four actors to play it have been), then so be it.

Admittedly, at this point we don't care almost as much as to who the new Doctor is; more than anything else, we just want to know that the announcement is made so that we can start speculating on the future from there.

The character, which is more than 50 years old, regenerates into a new version - played by a new actor. For the last three seasons, we've been given the chance to look at a more grizzled Doctor.
