Phoebe Waller-Bridge favourite once again for Dr Who
Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been backed into Doctor Who favouritism once again by punters.
The actress was the subject of a major gamble that saw her odds tumble into just 4/6 earlier on this year, but support consequently faded which left Kris Marshall to regain the top spot.
However, after a possible faux-pas on Newsnight, punters have piled into Waller-Bridge’s chances once again.
And she’s now the hot 2/1 favourite to take over from Peter Capaldi, followed by the former My Family actor at 9/4.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Capaldi’s replacement needs to be announced sooner rather than later, and punters are clearly convinced that Waller-Bridge will be the one after Newsnight’s slip up.”
