In London, They Have No Tumbleweeds – Arthur Darvill At SLCC

Another panel from this weekends Salt Lake City Con featured Doctor Who, Broadchurch and Legends of Tomorrow actor Arthur Darvill. The actor came out and started by saying that the city was suspiciously clean but he loved the place. He is a fan of American landscapes and he went running in Monument Valley only to have a tumbleweed blow buy, giving him that perfect American experience… he then explained that they don’t tumbleweeds in London, only crisp packets (potato chip bags) blowing by.

He talks about his time on Doctor Who, how excited he was to get the part and how nice the were to tell him that he was coming back before he read each of his many deaths as the character. He also has a theory that all of his characters he’s played on TV are actually the same person with different disguises…. he also gets asked the obvious question: “How is it to go from the Time Lord’s Companion to being a Time Master?”
