DOCTOR WHO? CHIWETEL EJIOFOR THE PUNTERS' EARLY CHOICE TO REPLACE DEPARTING SMITH

Following the news that Matt Smith is to leave the role of Doctor Who, Chiwetel Ejiofor is the early 8-1 favourite with bookmaker Coral to take up the iconic TV role. Russell Tovey is the 10-1 second favourite, ahead of Rory Kinnear, James Frain, Damien Maloney and Alexander Vlahos, all 12-1 with Coral, while Harry Potter star Rupert Grint is 14-1, the same odds as Olivia Colman is to become the first female Doctor.

"The race is on to land this iconic TV role, and it looks wide open, with many leading actors, and actresses, in the frame, although the early money suggests Chiwetel Ejiofor is the current front-runner," said Coral's David Stevens.
