Bookies suspend 13th Doctor bets on Kris Marshall

Warning! This article and its comments may contain spoilers...

An intriguing development in the ongoing 13th Doctor saga has surfaced today as bookies have suspended bets on Kris Marshall being cast as Peter Capaldi’s successor.

The actor – who will be best known for his roles in My Family and Death in Paradise (the latter of which he has just left… coincidence…?!) – is currently the new favourite to take over the TARDIS after “a surge of punters” backed him as the next Time Lord. Such a spike usually suggests some sort of insider knowledge, which is certainly interesting. Especially as we’ve been told that “nothing has yet been decided”

Hmmm. The plot thickens. Who even knows what to think anymore?! But let us know how you reckon Kris would fair as our honourable hero in the comments, just for the hell of it…

Should the next Doctor be a female? Join the debate in our dedicated discussion…

    Accepting this speculation hypothetically, I’d just repeat what I’ve said before.

    Whilst I really liked him as Nick in My Family and Humphrey in Death In Paradise, I’m not sure whether I can see Kris having the gravitas needed for the Doctor’s darker, more serious moments (The 10th Doctor in The Runaway Bride or at the end of Waters of Mars, for example). I also stand by what I said about not being able to see him quitting Death In Paradise to be with his family, only to move to Wales for months on end to do Doctor Who.

    Having said that, I would like the next Doctor to be someone that I could connect with again.
