BBC Worldwide Productions has announced the actor set to play the 13th incarnation of The Doctor in the upcoming 11th series since the 2005 revival of Doctor Who. New showrunner Chris Chibnall has confirmed that actress Chloë Grace Moretz will be portraying a totally new version of The Doctor in an attempt to draw in a large teen audience. Chibnall states, "This will be Nancy Drew meets time and space. The thought is to go where Who has never gone... a teenage Doctor AND a change of gender to boot! This opens up so many new possibilities and will give the show back its edge of mystery and intrigue. Chloë will bring her talents to shake up a franchise that many feel has grown tired and, quite frankly, predictable." The official BBC One announcement of Chloë Grace Moretz is set for tomorrow after the Wimbledon men's finals.
