Star Trek + Doctor Who? Steven Moffat Says “I’d do it in a heartbeat”

Star Trek + Doctor Who? Steven Moffat Says "I'd do it in a heartbeat"

For decades, there has been a lot of crossover between the fandoms of Star Trek and Doctor Who. What about an on-screen blending of Trek and Who? In a recent interview, Steven Moffat — who has worked as showrunner on Doctor Who since 2010 — said he would do it “in a heartbeat”.

Although, he has a few caveats.

“If it crossed over with Star Trek, it would have to be real Star Trek,” Moffat said. “It would have to be Captain Kirk and Mr Spock. It has to be the Doctor meets Mr Spock – that’s the one you want.”

“I mean, would I do it? Yes, in a heartbeat. I think you might find the Americans a little bit trickier to deal with!”

The two universes have been combined in the pages of IDW’s Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation 8-issue comic book series, written by Scott and David Tipton, that was published in 2012.
