The moment has finally arrived! It’s Saturday 23rd April 2016 and the Doctor Who fandom is on tenterhooks as Whovians across the land eagerly twiddle their thumbs in anticipation for tonight’s FA Cup semi-final on BBC One.

And yes, that is a sentence we never thought we’d say. Don’t worry, though, it’s all for a good cause, as the brand new companion will be spectacularly announced during half-time (around 6pm BST), which means that a brand new era in the TARDIS is about to begin! Pretty exciting, huh? And it’s about time, too!

We don’t know what shocks and surprises tonight will bring, but stick with us throughout the day for live updates right here and on our Twitter, @WhovianNet.
