Dr Who: Are BBC getting ready to replace Matt Smith?
Rumours that Matt Smith is close to quitting as Doctor Who have prompted William Hill to open a book on who will be named his replacement.
As it stands David Morrissey is the current 6/1 favourite but he is closely followed by Chiwetel Ejiofor at 7/1 and at 8/1 a female Doctor.
"We understand that Matt Smith's time as the Doctor is coming to an end and that producers could well be contemplating replacing him with a female Doctor," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
