Let's compromise and go with Farscape/Doctor Who/Star Trek

You'd think that sci-fi fans wouldn't limit their imaginations so much. I think this is a fantastic idea and I hope we see more Star Trek crossovers in the future. Farscape would be pretty cool.

I wouldn't be able to buy that fast enough. I would die and go to heaven.

Farscape/Doctor Who would be awesome. I'd like to see the Tenth Doctor with John and the gang!

Re: Holy ....! Doctor Who/Star Trek Crossover coming From IDW!

Oddly, despite The Third Doctor being my least favorite Doctor, I think he would be the best fit for John and company.

I'd be more excited if it didn't have Amy.

sorry, but you dont wnat to ass Amy in a Starfleet uniform, lets face it the only disappointment on this front is that its not set in the TOS era. Karen Gillian in a TOS outfit defines a very literal "fankwank"

As for the Cybermen on the Borg, im just not seeing the team up, what will the Cyberman offer the Borg, even if there is nothing left for the Borg to assimilate, they wont struggle to blow them up. Unless you work on the idea that the Borg believe they can learn how to be more robotic from the Cybermen.

I know that Cybermen existed first, but the Borg are way cooler and would destroy them in a heartbeat.

They could always put her in the season 1 "skant" uniform. Hell, they could have both Amy and Rory wearing skants...

they could, and it did cross my mind as I typed the post, but only if it involves Amy, and obviously only if its important to the plot

Really, you don't think much of Scream of the Shalka? I think it's an awesome story, and wish there were more Richard E. Grant episodes, Derek Jacobi's Master as his companion was a terrific idea, that I would've liked to see explored further. And, it's got Liz X in it as the Girl he hangs out with in the story
Actually I liked it a lot and I wish they'd gone through with the DVD release. Somewhere on my hard drive I have the vampire short story the BBC published too.

I was just meaning filed in terms of projects that are ignored in terms of being part of the canon. Technically speaking anything that is officially licensed is canon if you take letter of the law, but Dimensions in Time and Shalka and Fatal Death are the only items to be officially or universally "decanonized". Shalka was decanonized when Richard Grant's Ninth Doctor was replaced by Eccleston's Ninth Doctor. But I like Shalka just fine and was quite happy that Jacobi and Sophie O got their chance to do so-called "official" Who later on.

(Someone suggested, in all seriousness, that there should be a knowing meta level to the story, along the lines of the "Visit to a Weird Planet" and "Visit to a Weird Planet Revisited" Star Trek fanfic stories.)
It is a standalone - not connected to either the ongoing DW or Trek titles - so they could do something like that. The "it's a dream" gambit has also crossed my mind.

And there are some who are upset that Star Trek is sullying their beloved Doctor Who.
Probably a good thing RTD's idea never came through! Oh well, it survived the damage by Eastenders...

By the way, Alex, do you have a link to that "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" post? I think I'd really like to read it.
Actually, that's the entire text. It's on the blog at dwin.org - the post consists of the Amy/Rory/Doctor on the Bridge image Bleeding Cool posted and, well... "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" Heh.

To be fair, they're a good-humored bunch at DWIN so while the reaction has been generally negative, that particular post likely had a fair serving of tongue in cheek!

Here we go again ... A reminder - There is no such thing as "Doctor Who Canon." You're thinking Star Trek, where there is such a thing. DW re-writes its history all the time.

And yet there was a so-called 'canon-keeper' in the 1980s hired by John Nathan-Turner. He was called Ian Levine. How good he did his job, however, is another matter entirely...LOL
