Dr Who: Can A Lady Fill Capaldi Shoes?
With Peter Capaldi starting his final series as Dr Who, the betting for who will replace him continues to throw up new and perhaps surprising names. The latest favourite is Phoebe Waller-Bridge who is odds on at 10/11, with Kris Marshall offered at 4/1. Perhaps the biggest surprise of all is that three of the top five names in the betting are female and it is 8/13 that the BBC go with a female Dr Who
“All of money in recent weeks have been for ladies, Phoebe Waller-Bridge is the red hot favourite but we are seeing flashes of activity for Tilda Swinton & Michaela Coel,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
