I thought it would be a fun idea for a thread. :D

So what Doctor Who actors have you seen cropping up in other stuff on the Telly or in films?

I guess like everyone else I've seen quite a fair bit of Who actors in different things over the years, so I am just going to stick with the two I've seen most recently and that have stuck in my mind.

First there's Patrick Troughton as a hitman trying to pass himself off as"Jason King"in an episode from the series that bears the same name, entitled "That Isn't Me, It's Somebody Else",(1972).

Then there's Lalla Ward sporting some very big fangs in the Hammer horror film "Vampire Circus",(1972).

Spotted any familiar Who faces in other stuff recently?

I bought a film a little while ago called 10 Rillington Place. Haven't watched it yet but I noticed it starred a certain John Hurt.

John Hurt was also in Harry Potter (as Ollivander, the owner of the wand shop). :D
(Doctor Who) has been hijacked and redefined as a lucrative modern franchise. They've literally taken a square peg and painfully made it fit a round hole by taking enormous liberties with much of its fundamental essence. There's no turning back now.

Everyone who's anyone was in Harry Potter, and everyone who's anyone is in new Who.

So there you go!

David Tennant was also in the awful "Broadchurch", Christopher Eccleston was in "The Second Coming" and "The happiness salesman" and "28 days later" and "Shallow grave" iirc, Billie Piper was in "Diary of a call girl" and "Penny dreadful" ... er ... how long have you got?

There was that dreadful John Lennon biopic Christopher Eccelston was in. Interesting fact, Paul McGann's brother Mark also played Lennon in a film and was in Let Him Have it with Eccelston. He also auditioned for the 8th Doctor.

Also Troughton was in an episode of The Sweeney.

I'd say watch the film because it's really good, but keep in mind he's not in it very much, in fact he only has one line in the whole film. According to IMDB most of his scenes were cut from the final film. When I met him at a convention earlier last year I was going to ask him how big his role was originally going to be, but instead I asked him if he can still put ferrets down his trousers (he told me he wore baggy trousers with a large pocket inside where he placed the ferret and was surprised when he heard that there where people who actually did it for real to try and copy him. He said that he really did hammer nails up his nose though, apparently he did that because he didn't have time to learn sword swallowing)

It dosen't matter even if McCoy's only in a blink and you'll miss it type role, I love a good "Dracula" film and any old excuse to throw one on the telly will do for me. :D

Indeed. We have a copy of that and the title is fairly descriptive! :D
