Punters the Big Winners as Jodie Whittaker Named First Female Dr. Who

Jodie Whittaker has been named as the first female Dr. Who and those celebrating the most are Ladbrokes punters who had backed the Broadchurch star into favouritism when the betting closed on the next Doctor market.

Jodie Whittaker's appointment as the new Doctor Who has caused consternation among the media and on social media but it has been celebrated by Ladbrokes' punters, who had backed the star to replace Peter Capaldi heavily in the final few days before betting on the 'Next Doctor' market closed.

Whittaker was backed into outright favouritism during the last 48 hours of betting, and anyone who was part of the gamble can now collect their winnings from Ladbrokes, who were left counting the cost of the appointment.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes told Bettingpro: 

"Punters are laughing all the way to the Tardis having backed Whittaker into favouritism at the eleventh hour."

Whittaker is the first female Doctor and replaces Peter Capaldi who had himself been the subject of a gamble before being cast in the role.
