Crossover?

Doctor Who and Torchwood Executive Producer Russell T Davies has opened the door to a potential crossover between the two shows…

And hey – why not? With Freema reprising Matha Jones in several episodes of Torchwood (beginning with tonight’s BBC Three episode at 9.45pm) and Tosh and Captain Jack himself making their first appearances in Series 1 stories Aliens of London and The Empty Child, it makes perfect sense.

“I think the lines are becoming blurred… now that there’s a pre-watershed Torchwood repeat,” showrunner Davies told Doctor Who Magazine. “We’re building a strong, coherent, interconnected universe… but the answer, as ever, is story. If ever I think of a good story for Doctor Who and Torchwood to meet then I’ll do it.”

Davies does have one caveat about this potential crossover: “The only limit, I think, would be having The Doctor appear in Torchwood itself. Because the 9 o’clock transmission comes first, that would be putting a children’s hero into the wrong environment. But anything else is possible!”

Personally, I’d rather the see the Doctor pop up in The Sarah Jane Adventures, but even that might seem rather strange. Of course, if it works, it works, so we’ll wait and see!
