5/4 Female Doctor Who

William Hill can report further cash for the next Doctor Who to be female, with three of the top four in the betting actresses. Tilda Swinton is the 7/2 favourite, with Maxine Peake and Olivia Colman both 8/1. As a result it is just 5/4 that when the announcement is made it will be a female Doctor.

 “There is real support for the next Doctor to be female and I for one would not bet against it,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “Tilda is our worst result, with Olivia Colman also a terrible result.”

To Replace Peter Capaldi As The Next Doctor: 7/2 Tilda Swinton, 4/1 Kris Marshall, 8/1 Maxine Peake, 8/1 Olivia Colman, 10/1 Richard Madden, 12/1 Richard Ayoade, 16/1 Andrew Buchan, 16/1 Ben Whishaw, 16/1 Paterson Joseph, 20/1 Ben Daniels, 20/1 Chris Addison, 20/1 Reece Shearsmith, 20/1 Rory Kinnear, 20/1 Rupert Grint, 20/1 Russell Tovey, 25/1 Bar
