27 actors who have travelled between the universes of Doctor Who and Star Wars

From the Tardis to the Death Star, these actors have clocked up appearances in both sci-fi classics


Doctor Who and Star Wars have a lot of overlap, from their themes and settings down to the sci-fi fans that love them both. But they also share a few members of their cast – and you might be surprised who’s popped up in both universes.


Sure, we might not have seen Harrison Ford jet off in the Tardis (we’re sure he’ll get to it once he finally receives all our handwritten suggestions), but there have been plenty of actors who’ve traded the Time Vortex for a galaxy far, far away (or vice versa)…

1. Felicity Jones


The Theory of Everything actress has become a prized Hollywood star since her days appearing on The Archers, so it’s no surprise she was cast as as the rebellious Jyn Erso in Star Wars spin-off movie Rogue One.


And, as any Doctor Who fan knows, she played a master thief in 2008 Agatha Christie-themed episode The Unicorn and the Wasp. What a CV.
