Doctor Who Odds Plunge On Both Waller-Bridge And Swinton…Marshall On The Drift

Having been 1/6 just two days ago, Kris Marshall has drifted considerably to be named as the next Doctor Who with William Hill now making him Even money. On the flipside, Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been cut from 7/2 to 5/2, Tilda Swinton has more than halved from 20/1 to 7/1 and Olivia Colman is 20/1 from 25/1.

”Kris Marshall has been favourite to be named as the next Doctor Who for so long it is hard to remember a time when he wasn’t. However, at the end of the series finale, there was a suggestion that the next Doctor could be female and all the latest money has been for Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Tilda Swinton and Olivia Colman,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Next Doctor Who: 1/1 Kris Marshall, 5/2 Phoebe Waller-Bridge, 5/1 Tom Rosenthal, 7/1 Tilda Swinton, 7/1 James Norton, 12/1 Paterson Joseph, 16/1 Luke Treadaway, 20/1 David Harewood, 20/1 Olivia Colman, 20/1 Michaela Coel, 20/1 Richard Rankin, 25/1 Kayvan Novak, 25/1 Maxine Peake, 25/1 Pearl Mackie, 33/1 Andrew Buchan, 33/1 Ben Whishaw, 33/1 Vicky McClure, 40/1 Alexandra Roach, 40/1 Andrew Scott, 40/1 Andy Serkis, 40/1 Catherine Tate, 40/1 Hayley Atwell, 40/1 Matt Baynton, 40/1 Michelle Dockery, 40/1 Rory Kinnear, 40/1 Russell Tovey, 40/1 Sacha Dhawan, 50/1 Gemma Arterton
