The identity of Doctor Who's 13th Time Lord will be revealed following the Wimbledon men's singles tennis final on Sunday, the BBC has announced.

In a Tweet that's sending Doctor Who fans everywhere into meltdown, BBC America posted a cryptic video that teases the coming of the Thirteenth Doctor. 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.

'Wonder Woman' up close, personal for you
As for appearing in the almost-definite " Wonder Woman " sequel, Carter, 65, said it is all up to the director Patty Jenkins . Carter also spoke about how delighted she was with Jenkins' direction: "She knows who this character is".

There has been speculation that the Doctor will switch genders this time and become a woman. Capaldi is set to appear one more time as the character for the show's 2017 Christmas Special which is appropriately titled "The Doctors". It's already been established that Time Lords can do this, with The Doctor's adversary The Master becoming Missy. It briefly settled on Phoebe Waller-Bridge, star of the hit comedy series Fleabag and an actor on the upcoming Han Solo movie. With such high acclaim for her work on the series as proof it can be done and done well, we feel safe saying it would be hugely surprising (and frankly, disappointing) to see another white man step into the part, at least for this go-around.

The next season of Doctor Who will usher in much change. Capaldi is the twelfth actor to play the role and the fourth one since the show came back in 2005 after a 19-year break from the screen.
