Doctor Who Twitter Teases 13th Doctor, Reveal Set for this Sunday

This Christmas, for the first time ever, the clock will strike 13. With it being long confirmed and painfully certain that Peter Capaldi will be stepping down from his role as the Doctor, the Doctor Who twitter released a teaser video today announcing the new Doctor will be revealed this Sunday, July 16.

Capaldi was a major departure from the status quo of the show, from the kind-hearted confidence of David Tennant to the lovable quirks of Smith. 12 even differed greatly from Eccleston’s 9. For the last three seasons, we’ve been given the chance to look at a more grizzled Doctor. While still the “silly old Doctor,” we saw the story of a man with too much blood on his hands, wondering if he’s a good man.

We were gifted a resolution to this question with a breathtaking performance on Capaldi’s part in the Series 10 finale. The Doctor Falls served as a wonderful wrap up to the story of a conflicted, pained Doctor. With Capaldi we got instant classics like Heaven Sent, Listen, and Face the Raven. We’ve been through two companions in Clara and Bill, both of their stories being tied up in typical Steven Moffat fashion. Of course, it must come to an end, and now a new Doctor (and showrunner) are poised to take over. Capaldi will regenerate in the upcoming Christmas episode. 

Moffat, leaving the show after 10 seasons, 6 of which spent as showrunner, will be replaced by Chris Chibnall. Chibnall was head writer on Who spinoff Torchwood, along with writing 5 episodes of Who itself. His credits include 42, The Hungry Earth, Cold Blood, The Power of Three, and Dinosaurs on a Spaceship. He’s also the creator and showrunner of Broadchurch, whose finale aired this past April.

There have been many names tossed around as to who the next Doctor will be. Speculation has been tossed around for a few regenerations now that the next Doctor would be a woman, ranging back to when Billie Piper was up for the role of 11. Moffat and co. settled with a female Master for Capaldi, but there are strong indications the next Doctor will be a woman. The current frontrunner is Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who worked on Broadchurch with Chibnall. Close behind is Kris Marshall, who was favored to land the role earlier this year.

Whoever the role goes to, we can expect the next series, with an all new Doctor and showrunner, to take a different direction than the previous few series has. The BBC will announce the next Doctor Who lead at the conclusion of Wimbledon this Sunday, July 16!

I play a lot of video games and watch a lot of cartoons. I'm probably complaining about Overwatch.

There hasn’t been much buzz lately about any new acquisitions in the world of video game intellectual property. According to a recent report, Sony is currently engaged in discussions with a well-funded partner to potentially acquire the renowned film studio Paramount, along with all the exciting possibilities that come with such a merger.

As reported in the New York Times (thanks, ResetEra), Sony Picture Entertainment is reportedly in discussions with Apollo Global Management, an investment firm, as per two sources familiar with the matter. In the past, Apollo had made an offer to acquire Paramount for a minimum of $26 billion, but their bid was ultimately turned down.

The terms of the joint bid are currently under discussion, and there is a chance that the two parties may decide against making a formal offer. Unnamed sources have revealed that Paramount is currently in exclusive discussions with Skydance, preventing any official offer from being made at this time. Investor opposition to the recent deal that Skydance brought seems to have been significant.

The potential impact of such an acquisition is immense. First and foremost, it would introduce adaptations of Sonic and Halo into the expanding media empire of the PlayStation platform holder. Following the announcement, Paramount’s stock experienced a significant 11% surge in after-hours trading.
