With Peter Capaldi set to exit the TARDIS as the Doctor later this year in the annual Doctor Who Christmas Special, BBC has released a video teasing that the identity of the actor who will portray the 13th incarnation of the iconic Time Lord will be revealed this Sunday!
Announcing “It’s Almost Time,” the dramatic one-minute montage of the number 13 appearing all over the world and the key to the TARDIS waiting to be picked up pretty much sums up the exciting news we will get following the Wimbledon Men’s Final.

Capaldi announced his exit from the show in January, and was first revealed during a live in-studio event in 2014, whether his successor will be introduced in a similar fashion remains to be announced.
BBC has a major panel set for SDCC next weekend featuring Capaldi in his last appearance during his Who tenure, so one can wonder if there will be a live passing of the Sonic Screwdriver before thousands of fans in Hall H.
So any guesses on lucky number 13?
