Former Death in Paradise star Kris Marshall remains favourite to succeed Peter Capaldi as the next Doctor according to William Hill.
Ahead of the final Doctor Who of the series this weekend, which will see Peter Capaldi start to regenerate, the bookies make Kris Marshall the red-hot 1/6 favourite to take control of the Tardis next, followed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge at 7/2.
“Throughout betting on this market, we have seen quite a few favourites, however, Kris Marshall has always been near the head of the market
“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
