Tilda Swinton Is The Favorite To Be The New Doctor

NewsCould Tilda Swinton Be The Doctor Who

The next Doctor Who could be played by a woman for the first time as Tilda Swinton is the bookies' favourite to replace Peter Capaldi.

It seems like Swinton's acting carreer has been doing particularly well, and Doctor Who would definitely benefit from having her onboard as its new Time Lord. The award winning actress is even more popular in Scotland, with 10/1 odds in her favorite.

His departure coincides with that of writer and executive producer Steven Moffat.

He told the Telegraph newspaper that, while some fans are calling for a female Doctor, it's too soon for him to have decided on either the actor's gender or race. "I don't see why not".

Her odds of 7/2 put the Hollywood actress ahead of stars such as Kris Marshall, Olivia Colman, Maxine Peake and Ben Wishaw.

Outgoing doctor Capaldi, 58, announced last month he was stepping down from the role after playing the character since 2013.

And while there appears to be a lot of support for the doctor to regenerate into a woman, speculation that Tilda Swinton might become the 13th Timelord in the long-running series has garnered mixed reaction on social media.

He said: "I think the next time might be a female Doctor".

Capaldi will complete the current series, which is now shooting and depart the BBC show after this year's Christmas special, which will air on Christmas Day.
