In the sense of being a weirdly inspirational, quirky and reality-bending individual... well, yes, she could be. As good an explanation as any!

I wonder if PL Travers ever saw Doctor Who? As she lived long enough to dislike the Disney version of Mary Poppins she might have done...

I've always maintained that Mary Poppins, Oscar the Grouch and Snoopy are all Time Lords.

^ Good point! I have assumed that James Bond is also a Time Lord, but for other than TARDIS-possessing reasons.

A little tangential, but would the doctor say "My mind wonders, so I often wander..."?

I remember, as a kid, my sister trying to explain the Tardis to me. I said, "OH, so it's like Snoopy's doghouse!"

So, yes, I can totally see how Snoopy is actually a Time Lord in disguise.

And I guess the cat next door that we never see other than a paw swiping at Snoopy is the Master or another disgruntled TimeLord?

Sincerely,

Is it bad that I really want there to be a crossover where this happens?

I'd say it's more likely her umbrella is a TARDIS with a perception filter.
