Connections The Inbetweeners 2+ by DJ Forrest

DW & TW Connections

The Inbetweeners 2+

By DJ Forrest

It does seem like we’ve gone overboard on the Inbetweeners this month but its difficult not to leave it with just a review, especially since discovering a few familiar faces along the way during S1, 2 & 3, then the films of course.  So while I sat through several more reruns of the brilliant series (on Netflix) I began to mentally identify a group of people who had appeared in Doctor Who and Torchwood.  Of course when the the Inbetweeners 2 movie came out I almost squealed and leapt about like I’d just spilt coffee down me, but you will probably already know the reason for that if you’ve read our review of the film over on ‘Beyond the Hub’ Page. 

Below are the results of the Series and The Inbetweeners movies cast and crew list for Doctor Who & Torchwood Connections.  It’s thankfully not as large as previous lists we’ve covered this month but it’s been a great trip down memory lane remembering those who once graced our screens in their various Whovian guises.
