Hold on to your fezzes, Whovians. MSN has tweeted that there is a big announcement coming tonight at midnight, United Kingdom time.

UPDATE: The BBC has announced that the 12th Doctor will be revealed this Sunday!

The tweet reads as follows:

What could it be? Here are some of the guesses so far.

Matt Smith’s not leaving.
This is unlikely as he has already announced his leaving and is not likely to go back on what he has said.

Moffat is leaving.
This is more likely than Smith returning. Moffat has been head writer for 3 seasons and wrote a few episodes before taking the reigns. Is it time for a new writer?

The Twelfth Doctor.
As much as I and so many others want this to be the announcement, this feels unlikely. There are other rumors that say the announcement could come during a television broadcast this Sunday, August 4.

Doctor Who’s being cancelled.
Seeing as it’s one of the most popular sci-fi shows across the world it doesn’t seem very likely. But, this is the BBC we are talking about and you never know what is going to happen with them.

The 50th trailer.
The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary trailer premiered at Comic-Con San Diego in July, and fans who weren’t able to attend have been clamoring for it ever since. Could tonight be the night?

Stay tuned!

Editor’s note: Hypable will be keeping an eye on the situation and will share the news – whatever it is – tonight.

    I’m kind of scared to be honest. The last midnight announcement we had was about Matt leaving.

    • PabloRuiz7

      They’re announcing the new Doctor this Sunday, it’s confirmed!

      • Fear

        So, if they’re announcing the next Doctor on Sunday… what are they announcing tonight? I’m scared…

        • http://www.youtube.com/mapthestars Mapthestars

          They’re announcing that they’re going to announce the next doctor on Sunday.

          • Kristi Arevalo

            I’m crying from laughter because of this comment.

  • normalizboring

    Shouldn’t that be 11pm PDT, and 2 am EDT?

    • Stagegirl12

      No, London is ahead of the US so their time would be later than ours (assuming you live in the US)

      • normalizboring

        pdt would be pacific? and edt would be eastern?

        • normalizboring

          Oh, I see it now. Math….. ;)

  • hypableaddict81

    wait so the announcement is that there will be an announcement on sunday? or the announcement is tonight? im sory im confused

    • normalizboring

      i second that…….

      • Twelfth Doctor

        They’re announcing an announcement tonight. They’ll tell us what’s being announced on Sunday, but they’ll tell what it is they’re going to tell us on Sunday tonight. Make any sense?

        • normalizboring

          I understand, but it makes no sense…….. An announcement about what the announcement is going to be? I just want the announcement.

    Hey BBC i heard you like to make announcements so here’s an announcement for your announcement about your announcement: I just want the announcement.

  • doctorwhom

    As excited I am for the 12th Doctor I wish this was the comic con trailer

  • Allison L.

    i dont think i want to know the 12th doctor, i like the secret/surprise of it….i think….

  • Laura Jurgensmeyer

    What if the announcement is that the 12th Doctor will be a woman?

  • Doctor Woohoo

    I hope Zoe Ball isn’t the Doctor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That would be a terrible twist!

  • Laura Cain

    Announcement: David Tennant is coming back. In my dreams.

    • Matthew Howland


  • Elphaba Thropp

    These seem a bit major. I think that if there is an announcement, it’ll be something much smaller, like guest stars, or new writer/directors.

  • Garry

    Missing episodes discovery maybe ???

  • Doctor WooHoo

    Am I the only one who thinks the actor will be announced tonight? They will announce the special with the actor Sunday TRUE. But to keep that secret until then? People will see the celebrity going to the studio, no?

  • Frank Claus

    What if the announcement tonight is that the new doctor is going to be a Ginger? And then they announce who it will be on sunday.

  • Matthew Howland

    It said “Doctor Who’s Being Canceled” and for a second my heart stopped and then I kept on reading.
