If David Tennant, Arthur Darvill, and British crime dramas are your thing, this is your thing.
It’s remarkable that there are quite so many points of commonality between the reality depicted within Broadchurch, and the Whoniverse, even taking into account the size of the British acting industry, and the high turnover of talent within Doctor Who and associated shows.
So, without giving any plots away, here’s a list of people that should already be familiar to Doctor Who fans, when Broadchurch airs on BBC AMERICA in just over a week.
Let’s start with the most obvious point of commonality of the lot, shall we?
1: David Tennant (The Doctor, Doctor Who; DI Alec Hardy, Broadchurch)
You already guessed this one, right? Actor fella. Looks good in a suit. And we can throw the other famous Whovian in there as well, before we really get down to business.
2: Arthur Darvill (Rory Pond, Doctor Who; Rev. Paul Coates, Broadchurch)
So, who else has appeared in both shows? Click here for the full list.
Broadchurch gets its US premiere August 7 at 10/9c on BBC America.

The news that Matt Smith is to leave his role in Doctor Who at the end of 2013 has already prompted speculation on the identity of his replacement.
A host of names have been suggested in Sunday’s papers, among them Idris Elba, Dame Helen Mirren and John Hurt.
Also included in their list: David Harewood, Rupert Grint, Russell Tovey, Ben Whishaw, Billie Piper, Colin Morgan, and Tom Hiddleston
We have to say that the speculation so far on the twelfth doctor Tumblr tag has been smarter and more well considered and a lot more entertaining than what we’re reading in the press.
So keep it going.
In case you missed Saturday’s news, The BBC has announced that Matt Smith is to leave Doctor Who after four years on the show.
