Top Ten Who-Crosses

Happy Sunday and Day 14 of the Whovian Countdown! I had the best conversation with a four-year-old at church today. It went something like this:
Four: "Pastor Wiz, I have something to tell you; it is about The Doctor."
Me: "Okay Four, I love Doctor Who."
Four: "That's why I wanted to show you something. I got something special to show you, but I left it at home. I have a sonic screwdriver because I know about sonic screwdrivers. I watch Doctor Who with my big sister.
Me: "Four that is awesome."
Four: "Also, so you know the TARDIS is a flying machine that is bigger on the inside. You know that right."
Me: "That is true."
Yep, that was how my day started :) On will the blog -for today's Fan-Fun I've got ten great geeky Doctor Who crossovers.

cross·o·ver  (krôsvr, krs-)

  1. A place at which or the means by which a crossing is made.
  2. A short connecting track by which a train can be transferred from one line to another. 
  3. A blending or "mash-up" of two different story-world ie: Doctor Who and....

10) Doctor Who-Calvin and Hobbs
I loved some of the memes that came out two Christmases ago after "The Snowmen" but it is also as great as:
Let's just assume if Hobbes was travelling with The Doctor, he's probably trapped in an alternate dimension where the atmosphere is a mixture of argon and regret. Oh, and instead of a sun they just have a big ass ball of burning unrequited love beating down upon them.

9) Doctor Who-Sessus
 
8) Doctor Who-Psych

7) Doctor Who-Potter
Witch in the Fireplace
But also this...
And the BuzzFed List of actors who have been in the Harry Potter movies and on Doctor Who.

6) Doctor Who-Pilgrim
Scott Pilgrim is one of my all time favourite movies. I've lost count how many times I've watched it, so this T-Shirt from the Shirt List made me very happy.
The Doctor VS. The Universe

5) Doctor Who-Firefly

Stealing Time

3) Doctor Who Disney
I mentioned the other day that I love anything by Karen Hillon. She's already been mentioned once in this post for Witch in the Fireplace. She created these great images of princess and other Disney characters meeting the Doctor or interacting with the TARDIS. This is a screen shot of a few of her work I found on google.


2) Doctor Who-Trek
Mark was the first to tell me about about a Doctor Who-Star Trek crossover comic. I want to read! I found the artwork on WIRED.com's article on the comic, "Doctor Who and Star Trek Meet in Comics Crossover."

1) Doctor Who-Sherlock
There is so much out there that pairs these tow together. This might be one of the best:
