Re: IDW announces Doctor Who/TNG crossover

Rao...this is going to be awesome, especially since the Star Trek/Legion crossover has been supremely good so far, this has the potential to blow that way, depending on who the creative team is. The DTI would probably get a headache over this.

Huh, might be worth checking out. Not a big fan of IDW's stuff, but every once in a while they surprise me.

"Make it Geronimo?"

Of course, Star Trek has been repeatedly mentioned as a work of fiction in Doctor Who and its spinoffs, and the two universes follow very different ground rules anyway, so this would only work as an "imaginary story" type of thing (unless the TARDIS has found its way into the Land of Fiction once again).

I can't see them playing it that way. Besides didn't one of the DW producers want to do a crossover with "Enterprise"? So it's entirely possible that they're going to play this straight.

Russell T. Davies wanted to do a crossover, yes. He's mentioned it several times in interviews, and he wanted Julie Gardner to approach Paramount, only UPN had gone and canceled Enterprise by that time.

It's thought that the Enterprise crossover episode would have filled the "Boomtown" spot in the first season, which was itself a replacement for another script that fell through, Paul Abbott's "Pompeii."

Re: IDW announces Doctor Who/TNG crossover

I like both franchises a great deal.

I REALLY don't want to see them shoehorned into the same universe.

He's denied writing it in the Bleeding Cool forum.

However, I suspect that this is related to the "big" Doctor Who project he's mentioned several times on Twitter, especially around the time that it was announced that he was leaving the ongoing monthly.

By the way, if no one's noticed, according to the February PREVIEWS, Doctor Who #16 is the last issue of the ongoing. I suspect that this crossover will be taking its place. Hopefully, when it's done, we'll get another ongoing Doctor Who comic.

Re: IDW announces Doctor Who/TNG crossover

in the Peter David novel Treason, Soleta references running into a person that had a striking resemblance to the 10th doctor.

what other crossover references have there been?
