PETER CAPALDI’s successor as the Time Lord in Doctor Who will be revealed this weekend, the BBC has confirmed.

The 13th Doctor is to be unveiled following coverage of the Wimbledon men’s final on Sunday afternoon.

The announcement was teased during coverage of Roger Federer’s semi-final clash with Tomas Berdych on Friday evening, while the official Doctor Who Twitter account also released a trailer.

 

The 60-second clip shows the number 13 in a number of iconic locations across Britain including Downing Street and the White Cliffs of Dover.

It ended with the words: “Meet the 13th Doctor after the Wimbledon Men’s Final … Sunday 16th July”.

Death In Paradise star Kris Marshall is the odds-on favourite to succeed Capaldi, according to bookies Coral.

The My Family actor can be backed at 10/11, while Fleabag creator and actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge is second at 9/4.

Jodie Whittaker (4/1), Michaela Coel (8/1), Tilda Swinton (10/1), Natalie Dormer (12/1), Tom Rosenthal (14/1) and David Harewood (14/1) are also in the running.

Coral’s John Hill said: “Over 80% of the bets we have taken in this market in the last 48 hours have been for Kris Marshall, who is now odds-on to be confirmed as the next Time Lord.”

Capaldi said last week his regeneration as the Time Lord will be “more complicated than recent ones”.

The actor will step down from the role after the Christmas special but the actor warned it will not be an easy process in an interview with Radio Times magazine.
