Doctor Who is big right now which is quite surprising for a show that first finished in the 80s then was brought back to life and starred the bloke who would go on to pretend to be a dark elf and is currently the best big screen version of Destro so far. Since then we’ve had 4 other doctors and a legion of Whovians and is the best PG horror series out there. The series has featured stories from such varied writers such as Neil Gaiman and Paul Cornell. My question is, what comes next?
Don’t worry whovians, I’ve got your back. To avoid repeated story lines and villain overexposure what’s needed is the classic plot device, the crossover. The magic of Doctor Who is that it can be molded to what ever you need it to be. Victorian England story? Done. Modern story about politics? Done. The concept is so brilliant that you have any story you want and it will work. I mean we’ve had Star Trek crossover so with that in mind, these are the cross overs that should happen.
Supernatural/ Doctor Who
The Show: Supernatural for those of you who don’t know it features two impossibly handsome brothers who drive across America fighting and killing monsters, ghosts and other supernatural creatures. I did watch this but I lost track of the events around the time Dean drunk whiskey mixed with phoenix ahses to kill the mother of all monsters. Yeah it gets bit weird some time.
The Plot: The Doctor is investigating a disturbance at a house in which the brothers are at because of a local legend. The cross paths and have the science Vs. religion debate before finding out that it’s wayward alien who is trap on Earth. The Doctor rescues the Alien and grants the brothers one trip to see their parents during happier times.
Highlight of the episode: Seeing Jensen Ackles crack English jokes as Peter Capaldi grimaces. Plus I’m certain that even hinting at a crossover would explode tumblr so that’s another reason to do it.
Sons of Anarchy/ Doctor Who
The Show: Sons of Anarchy is gossip girls for guys, except that SoA has about 2.5 deaths per episode over gossip girls. I think because I’ve never seen gossip girls so if you’ll have to forgive me if I’m wrong. SoA features guys in biker leather committing crimes so we’ve already got the classic set up of the odd couple trying to work together. And before some one complains that it’s finished, need I remind you the Doctor is a time traveler and the cross over should happen in his show.
The Plot: The Doctor appears in what would be season 5, one of the early episodes. He tries to warn Jax about the future if he continues down the path he has chosen for himself. We then catch up in later and the Doctor talks to Jax again, who laments not listening to the crazy British fellow who claimed to be from the future. Jax makes the Doctor an honorary member of the Sons and they part way as friends
Highlight: Seeing Peter Capaldi on a motorcycle while wearing the SoA cut would be fantastic.
House/ Doctor Who
The Show: Hugh Laurie plays a doctor whose job it is to diagnose patients with bizarre symptoms. He is so brilliant he can be a dick to every one because he is always right at the end of the episode. Much like Doctor Who in some regards.
The Plot: One of the alien species shows up, House knows exactly what it is and what is wrong with it which leads The Doctor to believe House is a time lord. Really, it’s that House overheard the pair talking and every one has a good chuckle at the end.
The Highlight: Seeing Peter Capaldi attempt an American accent and the Doctor pretending to be a medical doctor would be great..
Game of Thrones/ Doctor Who.
The show: If you haven’t heard of Game of Thrones is can be summed with with sex and violence in medieval England with a touch of dragons. Also if you do start watchiung it, don’t become attached to any character, because they will die.
The Plot: The Doctor arrives to visit, but is quickly caught by the King on the Iron Throne. Meanwhile the Cyber Man show up to attempt to steal the Iron Throne, only to witness the barbaric fights and decide to leave the GoT lands well enough alone.
The Highlight: Seeing Peter Capaldi’s face at the horror that is the GoT universe would be amazing. That and i’m pretty sure the internet would explode if this really was announced.
So those are mine, what Doctor Who crossover series would you like to see happen?
