WATCH: ‘Doctor Who’ Stars Reveal What’s on Their iPods

Arthur Darvill, Matt Smith from 'Doctor Who'

A little bit of Talking Heads here, a little bit of Sinatra there…which songs were in heavy rotation on Arthur Darvill and Matt Smith‘s iPods when they were in New York promoting the new season of Doctor Who? We got the stars to share their NYC playlists in this new video. (Make sure to scroll down to listen to their picks and buy them on iTunes. Huge points to Arthur for his Everything Everything love. A criminally underrated UK band.)

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
