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)
