I winced every time this post referred to the Doctor as “Who” or “Doctor Who”. And I have never even watched the show (well, except for one Tom Baker episode my brother showed me).

Anytime I see a Doctor Who reference (having had never watched the show), I find myself feeling confused, and wondering where the aspirin is…

I was bored and confused, so it passes the Doctor Who Authenticity Test.

PROTIP: Never sleep again.

I’ve nevver really watched Dr who and this hurts my brain so bad too. Is this like a secret plot to make all the other contributers and MGK himself suffer anyurysms so you can take over the blog?

As a huge fan of Doctor Who, I can say that it is very obvious that you do not watch Doctor Who.

Fun basic concept for a story, but the details don’t really fit with the Doctor.

“But the details don’t really fit with the Doctor.”

Which, of course, means it fits with your average fanfic. The sort of stories where every character from the show is being played by characters from a *different* TV show, and probably the opposite gender. Or they’re all just sex-crazed ocelots.

I like how the first doctor is this perfect asshole. Always enjoyed that about him.

Got to the part where you mentioned “the 70′s Doctor” and his time machine getting stolen from the future and threw up…

Seconding the non-enjoyment of the Who: I gave it a season to impress me and just came to the conclusion that it isn’t for me. I’m not saying it’s bad, exactly, just that I need more consistency and less camp in my scifi.

I like Dr Who and enjoyed Quantum Leap back in the day, so I give this crossover idea two thumbs up.

I was an avid Dr. Who fan as a kid, but the new version with Christopher Eccleston didn’t appeal to me at all and so I gave up on it pretty fast.

David Tennant was more my speed, but I didn’t watch his episodes very often and when I caught the show occasionally I mostly felt confused. I vaguely remember sort of liking one about a world where a bunch of people lived in vans (that hovered, like several vehicles in the Back to the Future series) stuck in a perpetual traffic jam. But I just saw the first episode and never found out how that story ended…

I haven’t watched any with the current guy, and don’t particularly want to either. New Who just doesn’t appeal to me the same way the old ones with Tom Baker, Jon Pertwee or even Sylvester McCoy did.

Having said that, I’m digging the idea of Sam meeting several incarnations of the Doctor even if the synopsis has me thoroughly confused. This sounds fun.

A Dr. Who/Back to the Future crossover would probably be easier to pull off, though.

This is great. And since Doctor Who has more or less negative continuity (and so does Quantum Leap) it could actually be done.

Honestly, while it is a little out of character for the MODERN Doctors, the first Doctor showing up in the tale could easily be played by the 6th Doctor (the angry, blustering clown in the nightmare suit, as played by Colin Baker). The way Jim described the Doctor running around and just generally being an ass fits well.
Also, Peri’s there to get leered at by Al.

And hey, then you get the 6th Doctor meeting the 4th Doctor (or, since it’s the 70s, maybe the 3rd) and everyone gets to have all sorts of awesome fun.

Might have to borrow this for a horrible fanfic, myself.
