new Doctor to be announced today

Via yesterday's The Guardian, the new Doctor will be announced today.
After months of furious speculation over who will replace David Tennant as the new Doctor Who, the BBC is set to reveal all tomorrow (Saturday).

And in a remarkable bit of chutzpah - and confidence that the name will not leak before 5.35pm on Saturday, January 3 - the new doctor will be unveiled during a BBC1 Doctor Who Confidential special that will also be simulcast on the corporation's big outdoor screens in city centres around the country.

The Beeb is set to air an interview with the new timelord in a show, called Doctor Who Confidential - The Eleventh Doctor.

However, the question remains - who will be the eleventh incarnation of Doctor Who for the fifth series since its return to BBC1 in 2005?
I have to admit, I'm going to miss David Tennant. He was a delight to watch, and in all honesty, he was the reason to watch the reinvented series. But there are some names being thrown around that I would actually stick around for -- among them, Chiwetel Ejiofor (Love, Actually; Serenity), David Williams (Little Britain), and Richard Coyle (Jeff from Coupling!).

David Tennant is a beautiful, beautiful man, and I will miss him as the Doctor. He brought nerdy hot to a whole new level. I will post the results when I hear them.
