Doctor Who -Downton Abbey Common Bond

Hugh Bonneville who plays Robert Crawley on “Downton Abbey” was a pirate captain on “Doctor Who”. 

Iain Glen who played Octavian in “The Time of Angels” and “Flesh and Stone” in “Doctor Who” played Sir Richard Carlisle in “Downton Abbey”. 

My wife has a theory there is a shortage of actors in England so there are a lot of common bonds like this. Its cool to realize that on either show you have seen that actor before on something you like.
