Peter Capaldi just wrapped his last regular season as the 12th Time Lord after announcing in January that he would be exiting the Doctor Who role.

The New Actor to Be Playing The Doctor on "Doctor Who" to Be Announced This SundayWill the 13th Doctor Be a Woman?

It's about time: We're going to learn the identity of the 13th Doctor on Sunday, after the Wimbledon Men's Final.

It's been an anxious wait for such a long time to find out who'll be replacing Peter Capaldi - But now it's a matter of days till the world knows who'll be the next Doctor Who. Though some longtime fans feel that the dynamic must always be a male Doctor, current showrunner Steven Moffat, to his credit, has spent much of the last season hinting and slowly trying to ready the fans for such a major change. Along with Smith, Tennant and Christopher Eccleston, he's the fourth Doctor since the Beeb relaunched the series in 2005.

Number thirteen: unlucky for some - but lucky for "Doctor Who" fans, who will meet the thirteenth Doctor on Sunday.

Speaking about his departure earlier this year, Capaldi said, "I'm always someone that did different things".

Have at it, Whovians: Who would you like to see cast as the new Time Lord? I can't thank everyone enough.
