Arthur Darvill made his television debut in the TV crime drama He Kills Coppers. The same year, he played Edward "Tip" Dorrit in the BBC serial Little Dorrit. Darvill began playing Rory Williams, companion to the Eleventh Doctor, in the fifth series of the BBC's science fiction show Doctor Who (reuniting with his Swimming with Sharks co-star Matt Smith). He became a regular character in the sixth series, and confirmed that he would be appearing in the seventh series; before he and his co-star Karen Gillan (on-screen wife Amy Pond) left in the fifth episode.

Darvill had a minor role as a stable groom in Ridley Scott's Robin Hood, and played Mick Gallagher in Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll. In summer 2011, he appeared in Doctor Faustus at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London. After his departure from Doctor Who he was cast in the highly rated crime drama Broadchurch as the vicar, alongside former Doctor Who stars David Tennant and Olivia Colman.

In March 2015, it was announced that Darvill had been cast as the time-traveller Rip Hunter in the series Legends of Tomorrow, which is a spin-off of Arrow and The Flash.
