David Tennant and David Morrissey in 2008's The Next Doctor

Who’s Odds On For The Doctor?

Who’s the Doctor? Well, if early betting prices are to be anything to go by (and they’re not) it’s going to be Law & Order UK star Ben Daniels who is current 5/2 favourite with Skybet and accounts for 32.20 per cent of all bets taken.

Ben’s price has been cut dramatically from 6/1 ever since the book was opened on the Twelfth Doctor with other contenders for the TARDIS including the likes of Modred himself Alexander Vlahos, Quartermaster Ben Whishaw, enemy of spellchecker Chiwetel Ejiofor and OCD Vampire Damien Molony all hovering around the 12/1 mark with a selection of betting firms.

Starting with actors who have ‘form’ Billie Piper is currently 16/1 with both Coral and William Hill, Russell Tovey is as low as 8/1 with Coral, David Morrissey is 20/1 with Paddy Power, and, of course, David Tennant who‘s price ranges from 16/1 with Coral to 50/1 and drifting like a barge with Skybet.

Of course what you all really want to know is ‘What price can I get on Lenny Henry?’ Well, punters; grab your mortgage payment because Trevor MacDoughnut is currently at 100/1 with Skybet.

Just in case you have money to burn, other insane/ludicrous/tabloid choices include Simon Cowell (surely, he’s a shoe-in for The Master with the role of the Doctor to be filled by ‘good taste’) at 250/1 with William Hill along with Tom Cruise and David Beckham.

While taking up 3.90% of bets is non-other than Chelsea player professional scumbag John Terry, who is currently being Photoshopped into the back of every one of the Doctor’s victories at 500/1 with William Hill.

About

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
