Odds on the next Doctor

kris-marshal-doctor-whoWith the suggestion of Kris Marshall being the subject of heavy betting (Doctor Who TV: KRIS MARSHALL 13TH DOCTOR BETS SUSPENDED AFTER SUDDEN SPIKEThis led me to look at the various odds being offered, to see who else is on the list; queue this post!

The Thirteenth Doctor

Here’s a few odds (as of the time of writing according to Ladbrokes) that paint the story:

  • 4/5 Kris Marshall
  • 5/1 Tilda Swinton
  • 6/1 Olivia Colman
  • 16/1 Richard Ayoade.

If we dive lower we get some more intriguing names (and I suspect some fans have engage in wishful thinking):

  • 20/1 Rory Kinnear
  • 25/1 Sheridan Smith, Helena Bonham Carter, Alexander Vlahos, Andrew Scott, Danny Dyer, Lenny Henry
  • 33/1 James Corden, Idris Elba, Stephen Fry, Benedict Cumberbatch, Michelle Gomez
  • 40/1 Sue Perkins
  • 50/1 Josette Simon, Julie Hesmondhalgh.

I think we can ignore the 250/1 shot: Jeremy Corbyn!

I’d love someone like Alexander Vlahos to get the role, but I can see him playing the next Master / Missy before the Doctor. A world with Stephen Fry as the Doctor would be amusing. If I was to pick from these (and I left out lots of options), my list is:

  • Rory Kinnear
  • Olivia Colman
  • Kris Marshall
  • Julie Hesmondhalgh.

Of course, I know nothing!
