Following the news that Peter Capaldi will step down from his role as the Doctor in the hit BBC show at the end of the year, speculation has been rife about who will become the 14th actor to play the part.

The current favourite according to the bookies is Tilda Swinton.

The odds now stand at 7/2 for Swinton to take the role.

The 56-year-old actress has won global acclaim, making her name on the big screen playing the White Witch in the Chronicles of Narnia series, and starring in The Beach, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Grand Budapest Hotel and winning an Academy Award for her performance in the 2008 film Michael Clayton.

Richard Ayoade, the man who should have been The Doctor a solid eight years ago, is now sitting at 10/1 odds.

This, of course, isn't official as BBC has yet to confirm that a female doctor will make her debut in "Doctor Who" season 11.

The next series of Doctor Who will also be the last with Sherlock writer Steven Moffat at the helm.

As such, Ladbrokes has also noted odds shifting towards the likelihood of the next Doctor being a woman. Olivia Colman and Maxine Peake are also apparently punter favourites. "I don't see why not", he said.

Earlier this month Billie Piper who played Rose Tyler, the assistant to David Tennant's doctor said it would "feel like a snub" if the role didn't go to a woman.

After that, fans reacted with excitement on social media, asking for the next Doctor to be a woman.
