Next Doctor Who? Phoebe Waller-Bridge is the new favourite

Phoebe Waller-Bridge is again a favourite to be named the next Doctor who.

The Fleabag star has been backed into Doctor Who favouritism once again by Ladbrokes' 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 the 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."
