    Star Wars and Doctor Who fans clash at Norwich convention

    One thing is for sure; if there had been Star Trek fans at this convention, they would have mediated peace.

    It would help if you actually read the news article.

    Well there was no actual 'violence' but there was at least a dispute, which resulted in a 'verbal abuse'. I just found the article amusing :) Since the two groups are discussing having a meeting to resolve it.

    Really? Someone wrote a news article about two people having a *gasp* argument in a public place. Must have been a really slow news day for this to be considered news-worthy.

    At least reading the interviews it sounds like there's self-awareness at the silliness of it all.

    I for one denounce and reject any violation of the 1999 Wad Alliance Treaty.

    Or it could have escalated into an actual brawl. Consider, a Jedi and two Stormtroopers are staring down a Doctor and two Daleks. Or two Cybermen, or whatever. It is a tense moment. Then a trio of Klingons bust in, swinging their bat'leths and all holy hell breaks loose.
