Stars who played in both "Game of Thrones" and "Doctor Who"

Updated on July 7, 2013

Being a massive fan of both TV franchises Doctor Who and Game of Thrones, it is inevitable to notice numerous actors and actresses that appear in both series. This shouldn't come as a big surprise as both franchises use British performers. Although Game of Thrones is technically an American production, British accent makes the atmosphere seeming more historical.

I have tried to look around for a list of actors that have played in both of these series but none was serious about it. So I decided to create one myself. This should be the most complete collection of common actors and actresses from both "Game of Thrones" and Doctor Who". It took quite some time and effort for me to compile this list, so please credit me when you copy this to your postings.

The list below will follow the format of Game of Thrones on the left, and Doctor Who on the right. The tables will have the character name, first appearance and episode name, respectively. I've also ranked them in order of importance and impact to the series, subjectively.

Note: For those who have not seen GoT and DW, there might be some spoilers ahead, proceed with caution.
