Re: Crossovers that never happened but you wish would

Always wanted to see "Dharma and Greg" and their parents meet up with "Gilmore Girls" and the parents there.

Just think it would be fun.

When Darrin McGavin was still around I really wanted to see Kolchack mett-up with Fox Mulder on the X-Files.

There was an episode synopsis about a Law & Order crossover between CI and SVU where Logan appears on SVU, but it never happened.
A few years ago there were plans for a massive crossover of *all three* L&O shows, involving a terrorist attack on NYC, but it was quickly cancelled after 9/11 took place. To this day I don't think any crossover has involved all L&O shows, and I don't think CI has ever had one.

Me, I would have liked a L&O/Sopranos crossover: Jack McCoy goes up against Tony Soprano.

Actually, that might work better now: Set *Michael Cutter* after Soprano. Cutter would make mincemeat out of all of those guys.

There's already been a Who/Trek crossover, in a sense. It was called The Doctor And The Enterprise. The 4th Doctor shows up on the Enterprise and helps them battle the...shit, I can't remember who, I think it was the Rutans or the Sontarans (the Doctor determines that they are in his universe, after pointing out some differences between the two - in Trekverse, Gallifrey does not exist as its sun supernovaed quite a long time ago, and in Who, Vulcan destroyed itself in civil war). One thing I thought was weird is that in this story, no Trek character is ever identified by name - they're just The Captain, The Engineer, The Physician, etc.

David Duchovny could play a double role as both Mulder and that cross-dressing transexual guy.

Didn't they basically do that. I remember McGavin being on X-Files playing Mulder's predecessor, while Scully is caught in a hurricane.

Especially in Buffy Season 7/Angel Season 4 when the Apocalypses were both happening. It would have been awesome if they had been one in the same.

Wasn't Twin Peaks off the air when X-Files started?

Maybe you're thinking of the X-Files/Picket Fences crossover that was planned?
I think I read something about this too. It may have involved Mulder and Scully meeting Agent Cooper. Whether Coop was back to normal or was still possessed is unclear.

But wouldn't he have commented on the remarkable similarity between Mulder and Denis(e), the cross-dressing cop?
Alright, I found a Twin Peaks FAQ that may shed some light on this.

Sadly, it appears that this was just an ongoing rumor during The X-files run. Chris Carter was asked directly about this, and said nothing like that was ever in development, although he was a fan of Twin Peaks.

Honestly, I'm a bit suprised. I realise Twin Peaks was off the air by that point , But Agent Cooper was a hugely popular character and would have fit in very well in an ep of the X-files. I doubt they would've gone farther than just having Cooper, and I doubt they ever could've secured the rights, but it would've been great to see.

Burn Notice/Dexter

They're both in Miami, after all. I would LOVE to see them cross paths. They are both, in their own way, vigilantes.

And, in my sick little heart, I'm still hoping Dexter will stumble across an incompetent CSI agent with red hair and sunglasses. OH, that would make me soooo happy.

Also, in the "NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS" category, I would love the Leverage bunch to come across the now-retired A-Team.

A House/Lie to Me crossover would be interesting, too. The male leads are basically the same character, so it would be interesting to see them go toe-to-toe.

Sontarans. Later, they meet Daleks.

Ah, you had the Pioneer Press edition. The original fanfic story named everyone. A publisher decided to print it, as an actual book, and scrubbed the names.

I think it's weird that Criminal Intent has never done a crossover with the other Law & Order shows. I know the original series & SVU have done a few. Even Trial by Jury did a couple during its extremely short run. (Fontana & Salazar teamed up to discover who shot Ed Green. And then there was a giant 2-part crossover where SVU caught a serial rapist played by Alfred Molina, then Tracy Kibre prosecuted him.)

I also read that one of the later Law & Order/Homicide: Life on the Street crossovers was originally going to be a 3-way with ER. They couldn't arrange it, particularly since all 3 shows both took place and were shot in 3 different cities. Law & Order was in New York. Homicide was in Baltimore. ER was set in Chicago but shot in L.A. Coordinating transportation for the actors & crews was already extremely difficult with just 2 shows, nevermind 3.

I also once tried to write a Doctor Who/Star Trek: Voyager fanfic, but that was mostly because I wanted to see the Borg fight Daleks & Cybermen and because I wanted to write a scene where the Doctor (David Tennant) meets the Doctor (EMH).
just do it in the holodeck, chances are the computer has episodes of Doctor Who stored somewhere, the EMH can take the role of the EMH (Two Doctors story) with a holographic 10.

obviously the standard "the holodeck has gone wrong" drill is trotted out, and soon Voayger is in danger from a Dalek attack, and only The Two Doctors can save them.
My version didn't rely on the holodeck. Instead, I was able to tie in the respective mythologies of the Borg & the Daleks. The Doctor Who portion took place sort of in the middle of the ending of "Doomsday" (after Rose gets trapped in Pete's world but before the Doctor says his final goodbye to her). The Doctor is patrolling the void when the TARDIS gets pulled into the Star Trek universe by the Borg. It made sense to me that the Borg would be searching other dimensions to find new species to assimilate. We already know that's how they met Species 8472. Now, the Borg have set their sights on the technologically superior Daleks. It seemed the best way to do a crossover would be to put the Doctor into an unfamiliar universe. That way, the Doctor could still be the smartest man in the room but he wouldn't just make the Starfleet people look stupid because they have vital information that he needs because he doesn't have Borg in his universe. In fact, it's Seven's nanoprobes that allow the TARDIS to adapt to an alternative universe energy source to get back home.

Agreed. I was especially bummed out that no one from Angel other than Angel ever appeared on Buffy, even though minor characters from Buffy like Willow & Oz could appear on Angel and it would be treated like a major event. But I think Angel got the last laugh in the Buffy finale when the First Evil ended up being defeated not by Buffy, Xander, or Willow but by Wolfram & Hart.

I always imagined Gunn, Fred, & Wesley showing up at the end of "Chosen." They arrive in black Wolfram & Hart vans ready to form that 2nd front that Buffy & Angel were talking about, only to find that Sunnydale is already a giant sunken pit. I think Gunn & Fred's reaction to that would have been funny.

Yeah. Those are always fun. I loved the crossover they did on Mad About You where Paul's history of television documentary was narrated by Alan Brady from The Dick Van Dyke Show.

As someone else said, I think this did happen. He wasn't actually Kolchack but McGavin was certainly playing a similar character, a kind of proto-Mulder.

I can't think of a good in-continuity reason for this, but I'd like to see a season of Doctor Who where Catherine Tate plays the companion but each week the companion is a different character from The Catherine Tate Show.
"You will be exterminated!"
"I'm not bovvered."
"Exterminate!"
"I'm not bovvered though."
"But you will die!"
"Don't care."

For that matter, I always wondered what would happen if some of the various characters from The Catherine Tate Show met each other. I can only imagine what ruckus would be caused if Nan Taylor was in the hospital and Bernie was her nurse.

Re: Crossovers that never happened but you wish would

I remember reading a rumour about an idea for an episode of Pushing Daisies that would see Ned and Chuck investigating the case of a young woman who had committed a murder on the orders of a talking wax lion model.

Obviously the crossover would have been Wonderfalls/Pushing Daisies (both created by Bryan Fuller) with Caroline Dhavernas guest starring.

The only slight issue could be Jaye thinking that Ned looked a hell of a lot like her brother...

Tom Selleck is, of course, still around and acting. Maybe a story line about Magnum's involvement with Project Pheonix during his time in Vietnam. Because it's probably still classified Thomas Magnum isn't completely forthcoming at first, Special Agent Gibbs gets in his faces, but it just bounces off Magnum. It writes itself.

I would totally want to read/watch that Doctor Who/Star Trek crossover. Sounds brill.

I love that idea of using various Catherine Tate characters on Doctor Who... HAHAHA. The sketch with David Tennant playing Lauren's teacher was a masterpiece.

I would have loved to see that. Who knows? If the "Pushing Daisies" comic book goes forward and does well maybe an issue can cross over "Wonderfalls" into the universe again.

You know I totally forgot that NCIS was a spinoff of JAG and a Bellasario show. So I guess there's still hope. Seriously I can't believe they never thought of doing that on JAG. It wasn't like Selleck was adverse to doing TV or reprising his Magnum role, so I'm guessing it was either a money or legal issue that prevented it.
