    Doctor Whoovie, I especially agree with your suggestion of Robin Hood. I play Little John for the Des Moines (Iowa, USA) Ren Faire. And most of the people I work with know of my love of Who. It would just blow their mined to give then a good rennie Doctor Who story.

    hmm so would the Doctor be the one who encouraged ol' Robin of Loxly to do the splintering the arrow trick.
    How about this one too. He or his companion suggests to one of the Super Models to pose in a Wink nice bikini that'll become a famouse SI cover. Razz pant pant pant

    In terms of historical characters, I've always wanted the Doctor to meet Ben Franklin. Preferably at his treason trial in London, just as he was deciding to leave his British loyalties behind. I like the notion of the Doctor being the spark of revolution . . .

    How about Archimedes from ancient Greece? or Eratosthenes? They both had some pretty sophisticated views of the Earth/universe, even that the Earth was round, etc. Maybe they had help??

    As an astronomer myself, I would also love to see Sir Isaac Newton, Kepler, or Galileo in the TARDIS.

    Did you say "74,384,338 to 1 against"? That's my lucky number!

    I remember sometime back in the 80's there was fan fiction written and published (magazine style if I recall correctly -- I remember at had an illustrated cover... it may have even been a graphic novel, but I am sure DarthSkeptical would know about it then) of the Doctor on the Enterprise... In which the TARDIS finds itself on board the USS Enterprise (of the original series, Kirk, Spock, etc.). I don't recall any details, I need to dig it up (if I can find it).

    Cheers,
    Louis

    The Doctor and Martha in 1930s New York it'll be neat if they met a young radio actor/writer named Orson Welles.

    The experience with the Daleks might inspire him to make a modern adaptation of Wells' War Of The Worlds.

    Maybe drop some hints about Citizen Kane too!

    Fictional crossovers, I'd pick the TARDIS popping up on Star Trek: Voyager. Finally!

    I always figured that Voyager's Doctor not ever settling on a name and hence was only known as the Doctor was sort of a nod to Doctor Who.

    Which stands to reason that we should also have the Cybermen met the Borg! Which would assimilate the other?

    Here I'm trying to do a Dr Who mts Star Trek novel using the the 4th--Kirk era.
    started reading the Dr Who mts Scratchman in the latest DWM-
    they could do that movie 2day if they use an other actor for Ian Marter's character-or maybe actors of today.
    Idea

    Oh okay, I'm out of the loop when it comes to Big Finish.

    I favor the Borg in that match up, they have nanoprobes.Big Grin

    I don't really think the Holographic Doctor from Voyager was a nod to DW.
    Many noticed his similarity to Rimmer from Red Dwarf too.

    Is Jimmy Neutron's Time Booth a ref to the Doctor's TARDIS. That can be argued that it was, or what about his Hyper-Cube it was bigger on the inside than it was on the outside.

    What about Gary Seven's Servo?
    Was that a nod to the Sonic Screwdriver, that's doubtful, it debuted in 1967/68 right about the same time as Gary Seven's Servo was seen in the ST ep Assignment: Earth.

    I better not give too much, got me an idea for a Doctor Who/Gary Seven crossover...

    Move along, move along....

    Yeah, I meant only in the name "the Doctor" as a nod to DW perhaps... not the character itself.

    Yeah, there have been others that pointed to the similarities of the Sonic Screwdriver and the device that Gary Seven uses in the Star Trek episode Assignment: Earth. It may just be coincidence as the Sonic Screwdriver was first seen in Doctor Who: Fury From The Deep... and both of these stories (ST Assignment: Earth & DW Fury From The Deep) were first seen on television screens during March 1968 in their respective countries.

    It's a James Bondesque gadget to put it bluntly.
    Bond has his lighter/flamethrower.
    Doctor has his Sonic Screwdriver.
    Gary has his Servo. You know Gary Seven had a sassy blonde assisting him too!

    Rose Tyler say hello to Roberta Lincoln!

    You know what's funny about that is that I always thought that the Voyager Doctor was the basic personality Colin Baker was trying for, but not being quite as nuanced an actor as Picardo, couldn't quite reach. Picardo would've been a fabulous Doctor-in-TARDIS, even if American. Sadly his talents were mostly wasted being a Doctor-in-a-sucky-spinoff.

    I still have hopes, though, that some day, some way the Big Finish guys will lure Picardo into an audio versus the Sixth Doctor.
