Doctors In Other TV Shows & Movies

Today, I was inspired by @PalindromeRose

Then I became curious.
I was curious as to what Doctors in other shows or movies and other media that have caught your eye.

Capaldi for instance was fantastic in Torchwood’s Children of Earth but did you know that he was on AppleTV in a crime drama called Criminal Record?
And David Tennant was in Disney’s Ahsoka.
And tuning into Blake’s 7 just to watch Colin Baker as Bayban @CommanderBayban The Berzerker is always a fun treat.

So WHO have you seen and where? As another Geek, I dont want to miss any of them

Jodie Whittaker and Christopher Eccleston in the National Theater production of Antigone, which happened before Whittaker was cast but after Eccleston’s run. There’s a professional recording but it’s technically only available for educational use, unless you happen to be deep enough in the part of fandom that’s catalogued Jodie Whittaker’s every production and TV appearance…

Eccleston is really great in whatever he’s in. I’m going to look more into Whitaker cause what I have seen isn’t at ALL bad

A whole host of people in Broadchurch. Such a compelling show, even if it did go off the rails after the first season. Just don’t bring up the American remake Gracepoint.

Eccleston in The Second Coming, penned by RTD. Interesting take on Jebus.

Broadchurch was really good. You’ve got a whole host of Whoniverse in that including but not limited to David Tennant, Jodie Whitaker, David Bradley, Arthur Darvill, Eve Myles and more.

And everyone gets an episode or more to shine in that first season.

I saw this years ago so can’t remember if it’s any good. Will Any Gentleman…? I do like old Brit comedies.

Well Eccleston as Malekith in Thor: The Dark World wasn’t exactly a good performance…
Admittedly the script didn’t give him a lot to work with though :wink:

Christopher Eccleston was in Heroes.
David Tennant is the king of the sequels, often found taking over the reins from another actor, for example St Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold and Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger and (ahem) Doctor Who.
David Tennant also starred in Casanova, which led to him being cast as The Doctor.

I always found it funny that Peter Capaldi played a character called “W.H.O. Doctor” in World War Z, which was released right around the time he was announced as the 12th Doctor! Apparently a coincidence though.

Matt Smith shows up in Terminator: Genesys and Morbius (no, not that one!).

John Hurt suffers one of the most iconic movie deaths ever in my all-time favourite film Alien.

Peter Capaldi was in a charming little film called Local Hero which has a soundtrack by Mark Knophler.

OMG! I forgot he was in World War Z.

And yeah Good Omens is fabulous! I’m going to have to rewatch some of that pretty soon.

I highly recommend David Tennant’s Casanova, it’s extremely silly in the best possible way.

Tenant also did a great job in Jessica Jones

Decided to rewatch the first couple episodes of Jonathan Creek a while back, and imagine my surprise when Colin Baker showed up in the first episode (with a weird little ponytail, thought I had to mention).


Looking through IMDb, it also looks like Peter Davison shows up in a later episode.


And Paul McGann was apparently in an episode alongside Sheridan Smith, so we had a little Eight/Lucie reunion

Well Richard E. Grant aka The Shalka Doctor/10th Curse of Fatal Death Doctor was in this little known movie franchise called Star Wars?

Star Wars? Never heard of it! Sounds like a bad reality show. Which stars are Grant at war with?

Well, apparently there was a remake of “The Munsters” (sitcom from the 60s) with Sylvester McCoy in it! I haven’t watched it myself, but he looks pretty cool!
