Dr Who –Whishaw & Ayoade Popular – Will It Be A Female Doctor?

William Hill have installed Ben Whishaw as their 6/1 favourite to be the next Doctor, in what looks like a very open market. Richard Ayoade has been popular in the first twelve hours of betting and has halved in price from 16/1 to 8/1.

Billie Piper & Olivia Colman are both 20/1 to be named as the first female Doctor – Any lady Doctor Who is a 6/1 shot

“Everyone seems to have an opinion and we have added almost twenty new names into the betting in the first twelve hours of betting,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “There is also a small move to suggest that we might just get the first female Doctor.”
