Next Doctor Who: Kris Marshall Red Hot Favourite As Capaldi Nears The End

Ahead of the final Doctor Who of the series this weekend, which will see Peter Capaldi start to regenerate, William Hill make Kris Marshall the red-hot 1/6 favourite to take control of the Tardis next. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is the 7/2 second favourite.

“Throughout betting on this market, we have seen quite a few favourites, however, Kris Marshall has always been near the head of the market and he is such a short price that it looks highly likely that he has the job in the bag already,” said William hill spokesman Joe Crilly. 

To replace Peter Capaldi as the next Doctor Who: 1/6 Kris Marshall; 7/2 Phoebe Waller Bridge; 16/1 Luke Treadaway; 20/1 David Harewood; 20/1 Michaela Coel; 20/1 Richard Rankin; 20/1 Tilda Swinton; 25/1 Kayvan Novak; 25/1 Maxine Peake; 25/1 Olivia Colman; 33/1 BAR
