Just a Coincidence...?

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

Most people were surprised to hear that Matt Smith would be playing the Doctor, but some other people? Maybe Not... More than a day before he was revealed Betfair.com changes Smith's odds from 33/1 to 1/3 favourite. BBC went to extreme lengths to make sure that no one would find out as only a few Beeb executives knew beforehand. A spokeswoman said:

"You don't bet on an unknown name like that without basing it on something. Some people seemed to know about him. However, the majority didn't and we were still taking far more money on favourites like Paterson Joseph, David Morrissey and James Nesbitt. We don't believe there were irregular betting patterns and there was certainly nothing to set our alarm bells ringing."
