Oddsmakers Stop Betting on Paterson Joseph

30 November 2008 4:11 AM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

The Outpost Gallifrey notes that since Rich Johnston’s report Monday that Paterson Joseph will be named the next Doctor Who, the odds on him have fallen dramatically. Bookmakers are said to be no longer accepting bets on Joseph.

Joseph has told BBC News: "I'm afraid I can't make any comment on it. I'm not a gambler. And I don't approve of gambling unless it's for the Grand National."

As previously reported, there’s speculation a hunt or announcement may be made during the Children in Need charity special.

While the British press has filled many column inches and web pages with speculation the odds now look like this:

Odds On Who Might Be The Next Doctor, From Betfair (26th Nov 2008):

7/17 Patterson Joseph

9/1 Robert Carlyle

19/2 David Morrisey

21/2 Rhys Ifans

11/1 Anthony Head

15/1 Chiwetel Ejiofor, James Nesbitt

24/1 Colin Salmon

29/1 Sean Pertwee, Russell Tovey

31/1 Richard Coyle, Richard E Grant

39/1 Jennifer Saunders, Catherine Tate, »
