Phoebe Waller-Bridge Is New 13th Doctor Favourite
Phoebe Waller-Bridge has emerged as the bookies’ latest actor to take the role of the 13th Doctor.
The Fleabag star has rapidly risen to favourite this week. She now rivals Kris Marshall who maintained weeks at the top.
Waller-Bridge previously worked with incoming Doctor Who showrunner Chris Chibnall on Series 2 of Broadchurch, playing Abby.
Betway said: “Phoebe Waller-Bridge is all the rage with the punters at the moment. Her odds of being the next Doctor Who have collapsed from 20/1 to 2/1 since Monday morning and we’re on red alert, keeping an eye out for any more telling bets.
“Kris Marshall remains solid at 2/1, but the sudden rush of support for Waller-Bridge suggests the race to become TV’s next Time Lord is swinging in her favour.”
