Doctor Who isn’t even beginning the search for Peter Capaldi’s replacement until sometime this summer, but that isn’t stopping overseas betting agencies from attaching major stars to the title role. After some initial oddsmakers’ bets, another agency is placing high odds on not only a female Doctor, but on Tilda Swinton at that.

As tends to be the case with Doctor Who announcements, we have quite some time before the departure of star Peter Capaldi takes effect, and a full season in the meantime.

The built-in turnover of Doctor Who keeps the Regeneration rumor mill in perpetual motion, and it seems Peter Capaldi is finally turning that wheel. The BBC confirms Capaldi will exit the role in 2017, kicking off the search for a 13th (technically 14th) Doctor.
