In 1991, Andrew Cartmel proposed a crossover between Doctor Strange and Doctor Who to Doctor Who Magazine editor John Freeman, called The Two Doctors. The plot Cartmel submitted involved a rock band that made a deal with a demon to become successful. Lee Sullivan made a piece of promotional art for the crossover with Doctor Strange, the Seventh Doctor, and Ace. Despite being a Doctor Who fan and liking the idea of the crossover, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Tom DeFalco decide not to proceed with the crossover following the reduced interest in Doctor Who caused by the BBC's then-recent "hiatus".
Doctor Strange appears on a poster on Grant's wall. However, he is not identified by name.
