12th Doctor to Be Announced on Sunday (UPDATED)

Rumors have been flying around a lot lately that the 12th Doctor will be confirmed this Sunday. Supposedly, the BBC will air a special episode of Confidential entitled Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor Sunday at 7pm.

The episode will be filmed live in front of a studio audience. Currently a rerun of Celebrity Mastermind is scheduled during that timeslot, but that is expected to be replaced tonight at midnight UK time. The show will be hosted by Zoe Ball and feature interviews with past Doctors, companions, celebrity guests, and Steven Moffat.

Moffat has been denying for a while now that the new Doctor has been cast. However, since he's a known liar, it's likely he's had one picked out for a while now. I wouldn't be surprised if the 12th Doctor was cast weeks ago.

UPDATE: The rumor has now been confirmed. The BBC have released a press statement which you can read here.
