A crossover is a story in which elements from two fictional universes, originally created to be distinct, are brought together for the span of a specific narrative.

There have been many crossovers between stories officially set in the Doctor Who universe and other works of fiction, some licensed on the part of the property being crossed over with, some not. Some use devices such as the Land of Fiction to allow characters from the DWU to "meet" individuals who are, otherwise, as fictional to them as to the reader.

However, many crossovers imply that the property being crossed over with is actually a part of the DWU, even if that was not that property's creators' original intent. Others make use of the idea of the Multiverse to establish the Doctor's home dimension as distinct from, but coexisting with, other dimensions inabited by various unrelated fictional characters.

Official crossovers[]

By definition, only stories licensed to use the DWU concepts they contain are covered on this Wiki. The following crossovers are, however, notable for also having been licensed appearances of the "foreign" concepts with which the DWU characters interact. They were usually advertised as crossovers.

Television[]

  • The earliest planned televised crossover was in the 1965 episode "The Feast of Steven", in which the Doctor Who production team hoped to use the main cast and setting of Z-Cars for some scenes set in a police station. However, Z-Cars producer David Rose rejected the idea. The plan was referenced in the novelisation, which named the policemen after the Z-Cars cast.

The image of a Dalek, under license from Terry Nation, appeared on television in 1966... on ITV!

Video games[]

  • Doctor Who was one of 30 different franchises to be represented in the mass-crossover video game LEGO Dimensions.

Unofficial crossovers[]

The following crossovers are usually brief cameos by, or allusions to, elements of non-DWU works of fiction in DWU stories. The non-DWU elements are unlicensed and sometimes not explicitly named.

The following lists are such crossovers as they occurred within stories licensed from the DWU's point of view; however, the symmetrical situation often occurs, with elements of the DWU being acknowledged in other works of fiction. Such unlicensed crossovers are listed as "in-universe references" at Cultural references to the Doctor Who universe.
