The BBC has told SFcrowsnest.com that it will reveal the identity of the 11th Doctor on Doctor Who Confidential to be aired on BBC One tomorrow, Saturday 3rd January 2009, at 5.35pm.

Following the announcement in October 2008 that David Tennant would be stepping down from his role as the Doctor at the end of 2009, speculation has been mounting as to who would take over from him for the fifth series of the BBC scifi drama that will air in 2010.

With a new creative team in place for the new series led by Executive Producers Steven Moffat and Piers Wenger, the casting of the new Doctor was job number one to be completed before scripts could be finalised and shooting could begin in summer 2009.

Head Of Drama BBC Wales, Piers Wenger, told SFcrowsnest.com, "We are so pleased to have been able to cast this person as the new Doctor. We believe the actor is going to bring something very special to the role and will make it absolutely their own I just can't wait to tell everyone who it is it has been a nail-biting Christmas trying to keep this under wraps!"
