Olivia Colman Now The Bookie's Favourite To Be The New Doctor Who – But What About Phoebe Waller-Bridge?
Yesterday, we reported on the bookmaker William Hill's odds on who will be playing the next Doctor Who. And how Ben Whishaw was their 6/1 favourite. At the time Olivia Colman was 20/1.
We then wrote an article setting out a case why Colman could be a favourite.
Well, it appears that someone read it.
William Hill have now made her their favourite to take the role, on 8/1 odds while Ben Whishaw has crashed down to 12/1.
This is the first time a bookmaker has ever made a female actor the odds on favourite to be the next Doctor.
But also, coming in at 14/1, is a new entry, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, of Crashing, Fleabag and the upcoming Killing Eve.
Well, that would be rather fun as well, wouldn't it?
Here ate the current odds in full.
