According to the ratings thread, there is a rumour that BBC1 will have a schedule change this Sunday (4th August) at 7.00pm to announce who the 12th Doctor is. Nothing confirmed as yet, but watch this space!

That would mean ditching the Indiana Jones film. So a change of movie at 5.35pm?

Looks like they just got their days mixed up as they mention Celebrity Mastermind which is on Sunday.

That would make more sense. It would seem a bit odd to ditch the third Indy film after showing the first two.

Whenever there's a rushed announcement it's usually because the media have got wind of something. And the BBC want to reveal something before the media does. I suspect a Sunday paper will have the news within it somewhere as a "our unconfirmed report from our sources" story.

He'll be great. If it is him. Although he was in an episode in Series 4 and Torchwood.

Maybe that's the controversial bit of the 50th if he features in it.

I doubt it would be a COMPLETE unknown unveiled on live television. Imagine the few moments of silence as they walked out

I think it's one of the names already out there now,

It looks like this http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2013-...rs-of-the-show was the cover for it, I wondered how it would have an audience with it only being announced tonight.

So now that the embargo's been broken, who's betting we'll get loads of complaints at midnight about the BBC "just confirming what we already know" when it isn't their fault Metro messed up.

Taking 2 + 2 and making 5......maybe it is a live clip show with the new Doctor being presented to an audience full of Whosters..er..all dressed up and fancy stuff like that.

Pulled Metro article:

The wait is almost over for Doctor Who fans, as the identity of the next actor to play the Doctor is to be revealed in a special one-off Doctor Who Live broadcast on BBC One this Sunday August 4 at 7pm.

In front of a live studio audience, host Zoe Ball will unveil and interview the 12th person to play the Time Lord, one of the most coveted roles in British television.

The half hour programme will feature Doctors old and new, companions, special guests and celebrity fans, all taking place against the backdrop of a swirling vortex with Daleks and the TARDIS stationed in the studio.

Earlier in the week the BBC disguised the show in the TV listings, scheduling a fake ‘Celebrity Mastermind’ in the 7.30pm-8pm slot.

Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor will end months of speculation over who will be taking over from Matt Smith, with Peter Capaldi, Ben Daniels, Ben Whishaw and David Harewood having all been linked with the role, though an unknown actor is perhaps far more likely.

Executive producer Steven Moffat said : ‘The decision is made and the time has come to reveal who’s taking over the TARDIS. For the last of the Time Lords, the clock is striking twelve.’

Moffat and Smith will both give interviews during the show, commenting on the role and what they believe it takes to play the Doctor.

Fans in America will be able to watch the unveiling live via simulcast on BBC America.

Charlotte Moore, Controller BBC One said : ‘BBC One is the home of big live events and this special live show is the perfect way to reveal the identity of the next Doctor and share it with the nation. The Doctor is a truly iconic role and I’m more than excited about the booking.’

Ben Stephenson, Controller of BBC Drama Commissioning meanwhile, revealed how they have been using the codename Houdini for the actor.

He said: ‘We can’t wait to unveil the next Doctor with everyone live on BBC1 on Sunday night. Amongst all the speculation and betting, there has been lots of fun and intrigue at work as we’ve been using the codename Houdini as a decoy! It’s the biggest secret in showbiz, even those working with the new Doctor on other projects at the moment have no idea they are in the presence of the 12th incarnation.’

Rory Kinnear had also been tipped as a possible Doctor, but after insisting that he won’t be joining the show his denial was compounded by his signing up to ITV drama Lucan, which films at the same time.
Wonder if we might finally get a trailer after it? Unlikely, but it seems silly to miss the opportunity. Here's where the article appeared, now showing a 'Page Not Found' error:

According to GB, tickets have already been given out under the pretense of them being for the first recording of brand new live entertainment show.

That would be somewhat like the Confidential special 'The Eleventh Doctor' (originally appearing in the listings as a retrospective called 'The Ten Doctors'). There should be a retrospective intro, in fact... this being the anniversary and all that.

I know that's where I got the information from, they said they applied for tickets to a new entertainment show looking at long running shows, which matches the Radio Times article where it says the pilot will be cover Doctor Who. The audience should be Doctor Who fans if that's the case.

So, only three days to go before all the speculation about when 12 will leave and who the 13th Doctor will be can start...
