Not all of the series. Just ever since that 2005 revival (sorry long haul fans).

Since leaving Doctor Who after only one series, Eccleston has continued to have a prolific amount of roles: from The Leftovers to The A Word. He's also starred in Fortitude, and died in the opening episode.

Piper was on and off and on and off and on and off Doctor Who for eight years as Rose and sensationally came back for the show's 50th anniversary special. She's since gone on to be a big success on the stage, starring in Yerma, bagging an Olivier Award for Best Actress just this week.

Tennant never needs to fear being typecast as The Doctor. His role as DI Alec Hardy in the realistic thriller Broadchurch has gone down a storm with viewers and critics alike (the show finishes this month). He's also starred in Jessica Jones, and reappeared as The Doctor in the 50th anniversary special.

Do I need to say what Kylie has been up to? This is silly. It's Kylie FFS.

After Torchwood came to an abrupt end with Miracle Day (a show he wants to return), Barrowman has moved on to star in Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow. He also once spectacularly fell off a chair whilst wearing high heels on Loose Women.

After leaving Doctor Who in 2010, Agyeman has gone on to star as Amanita in the Netflix Original Sense8. The second season is back May 8th.

Simm has appeared in four episodes of Doctor Who, then went on to star in Mad Dogs and Intruders on television. One of the best damn villians of all, Simm is due to sensationally return to the show in the upcoming series.

11. Matt Smith (Eleventh Doctor)

You really should watch The Crown. He stars as Prince Phillip in Netflix's big budget drama, and he's bloody ace. A second season is currently being filmed. He's also been in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Terminator Genisys.

12. Karen Gillan (Amy Pond)

After leaving Doctor Who in 2012 (as well as a cameo in Smith's final episode), Gillan starred in a US comedy-drama Selfie, which lasted one season, as well as Emo Dad. Her next role is in a remake of Jumanji and Avengers: Infinity War.

Darvill left with Gillan in 2012, and has since gone on to star alongside Tennant in Broadchurch as Rev. Paul Coates. He's also appeared on the stage at the National Theatre in Treasure Island and on TV in Legends of Tomorrow .
