Could the ultimate sci-fi crossover – ​Doctor Who ​meets ​Star Trek ​- be about to happen at some point in the future?

Steven Moffat, showrunner on ​Doctor Who ​since 2010, has said he would do it “in a heartbeat” – though he has some conditions.

For one, he wouldn’t be satisfied by a crossover with the new Star Trek ​series being developed by CBS for launch in 2017.

“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!”

What say you, Paramount? Is there room for a Time Lord and his TARDIS on the Starship Enterprise?

Doctor Who continues on BBC One this coming Saturday.
