Ladbrokes - Females lead the pack for BBC's Doctor Who

NewsCould Tilda Swinton Be The Doctor Who

The mighty Tilda Swinton has played a vampire (Only Lovers Left Alive), a Bowie-esque pop star (A Bigger Splash), a superpowered sorcerer (Doctor Strange), and twin gossip columnists (Hail, Caesar!), to name but a few of her recent roles.

In the same interview with Broadcast, Steven Moffat spoke about his time at Doctor Who and his decision to leave.

After some initial oddsmakers' bets, another agency is placing high odds on not only a female Doctor, but on Tilda Swinton at that.

Ben Whishaw however is still in the running with his odds at 10/1 and Michelle Gomez at 33/1.

"I think the next time might be a female Doctor", he said previous year (16).

Another former Doctor Who actor, Matt Smith, is also reportedly interested in reprising the role, and comedian Richard Ayoade is also considered one of the favourites. Harry Potter actors making the jump to Doctor Who is not without precedent!

For what it's worth, BBC America president and GM Sarah Barnett was also recently asked about the prospect of a Doctor Who replacement, to which she tellingly referenced David Tennant's suggestion that Olivia Colman take over the role.

In the same interview, Sherlock co-creator Moffat also spoke about his own departure from Who after the next series, saying he'd nearly left the show at the end of Matt Smith's run: "For various reasons, during my third series I wasn't as happy".

Doctor Who will return to BBC One on Saturday 15 April with Capaldi appearing in 12 episodes before the regeneration in the Christmas Special. "This will be the end for me". It's a fantastic programme to work on. I've never worked the same job for three years, and I feel like now is the right time to move on.

Many fans are now both sad and excited for "Doctor Who".
