Arthur Darvill, who played Rory Williams in Doctor Who from 2010 – 2012, plays lead character Rip Hunter in the new TV series Legends Of Tomorrow. There are a number of similarities to the Doctor Who TV series.

Rip Hunter is also known as The Time Master, (sounds like a Time Lord to me). He carries a pistol that has a glowing blue light like Doctor Who’s sonic screwdriver and wears a brown trench coat like the one worn by David Tennant‘s version of Doctor Who.

The evil immortal, Vandal Savage, carries a staff and wears a hooded cloak, much like those of the Time Lords on Doctor Who. Rip Hunter and his ‘companions’ travel through time in a time machine to help stop disasters, caused by Savage, that could destroy the human race.

Although there are a lot of similarities to Doctor Who, the trailers for Legends Of Tomorrow show glimpses of what could be a very interesting and action packed television series.

Legends Of Tomorrow premieres tonight on the CW network and will be available on Hulu tomorrow!
