Hartnell’s Doctor and Buffy Summers

He’s the one older, British gent she wouldn’t be able to mess about. Most of the time… Let’s be honest, Buffy needs a Giles-type in her life. She loves a father-figure, or even a grandfather-figure. If the TARDIS just so happened to touch down in Buffy’s life and good old Hartnell popped his head out, I don’t think she’d be able to resist. And it would have to be Hartnell’s Doctor, please. I can imagine them so perfectly together, in all their expertly sarcastic glory. ______________ Where Buffy’s mentor Giles was soft at first but gradually showed a stronger side, Hartnell introduces himself to everyone he meets as a tough, slightly unreasonable old bean, who gets sweeter and squishier the more you get to know him. Buffy has the brute strength to deal with vampires, and with the personality to boot she makes a coveted companion to join the Doctor in his escapades. She’s no stranger to a new challenge and has fought hundreds of different fiends. her adaptability would be useful on an alien …

Sherlock, Watson and the Ninth Doctor – I ship it

This choice isn’t purely to do with my incessant need to fangirl, it’s just 90% to do with my incessant need to fangirl. Sherlock Holmes may have many incarnations, but for me it’s all about the Cumberbatch and I could see him and Martin Freeman joining Christopher Eccleston on a wicked adventure or two through space and time. Why Nine? Well… _________________ _________________ _________________ Nine’s just such a lad. I’m not sure how else to explain it. Given that such a massive obsession of the Sherlock fandom is the witty banter and adorable bro-mance between Cumberbatch’s Sherlock and Freeman’s Watson, Eccleston’s Doctor would be the perfect match. He’s as complicated and deep as Sherlock and John, but he hides it under layers of  wit and charm. And God I would love to see who would win in a sass-fight between him and watson… _____________ I don’t know who is more mental: Sherlock or the Doctor. Okay, Sherlock is a drug-addicted sociopath, but the Doctor’s an actual different species; something John may have accused Sherlock of …

Best Crossover Ever?! Dumbledore as the Doctor’s companion

David Tennant’s incarnation of the Doctor may have suffered the most incredible existential crisis I have ever seen on television. [*moment of quiet contemplation*] Nope, he definitely suffered the most incredible existential crisis I have ever seen on television. The last few Tennant episodes were spectacular, if not always in plot, most certainly in the way his struggles were portrayed. Here was a Time Lord who knew he could not escape his death, but though he wouldn’t actually die, he would lose everything that made him him in that period. The simple human mind kind of boggles at that kind of self-reflection. At that point in his tenth life, the Doctor really needed someone to lean on. But he couldn’t; his companions were all gone and to be honest I don’t think Martha or Rose could have done anything but give him a bit of a pointless hug…Donna may have slapped some sense into him, but what Ten really needed was someone perhaps older and wiser to guide him through… At one point, Russell T …

Matilda & Matt Smith’s Doctor may be my OTP

—————–.———– Everyone remembers Matt Smith’s first episode of Doctor Who, right? In his memorable scene with little Amy Pond, the eleventh incarnation of the Doctor became the first (in the reboot series) to have a child companion. And if you have never seen the show before, I mean that in a very plutonic way. Eleven is one of the wackiest Doctors the show has seen in ages; the oldest of the Doctors so far yet probably the youngest at heart. His first scene with young Amy was incredibly heartwarming and I ended up being incredibly disappointed when he took grown-up Amy on as a companion instead. Obviously the child abduction jokes/complaints would have come rolling in by the thousands so the writers’ choice was obvious, but what if it wasn’t an issue? What if it was perfectly okay for Eleven to have the child companion he’s so brilliantly suited for? Could it be anyone but Matilda? Just imagine the cute adventures they would have together. Eleven could truly indulge his childish self when he’s with …
