New Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi is set to travel around the world - without the help of his Tardis - as part of a promotional tour.
Millions will tune in to Doctor Who tonight to see Matt Smith hand over the Tardis to Peter Capaldi, the latest incarnation of the timelord.
Glasgow-born actor and Oscar winner Peter Capaldi has been unveiled as the 12th incarnation of Doctor Who.
Bookmakers have suspended betting on the new Doctor Who because they are convinced Peter Capaldi has got the job.
The actor, famous for his role as foul-mouthed Malcolm Tucker in The Thick of It, was down to 5/6 favourite with William Hill when they stopped taking bets.
Joe Crilly, a spokesman for the firm, said: "We have seen people today trying to back Peter Capaldi as much as possible at every price available and after a small gamble on Daniel Rigby overnight, it seems that Capaldi is once again in line to move into the Tardis."
Quantum of Solace actor Rory Kinnear, a bookies' favourite in June, has slipped to 8/1 with William Hill.
