A crossover character is a character who exists both within the Doctor Who universe and one or more other fictional universes. Although fictional characters have appeared as such within the Doctor Who universe (for example, in the Land of Fiction), characters from other works have, from time to time, become involved.

Explicit crossovers Edit

Television Edit

There have been many crossovers involving televised Doctor Who and other TV shows. The first was the 1993 Children in Need special Dimensions in Time, when the Doctor and some of his companions met the cast of EastEnders. This also served as part of the show's 30th anniversary celebrations.

The second, One Born Every Minute, occurred twenty years later during the 2013 Comic Relief telethon, and combined the show with characters from BBC Drama Call the Midwife.

Despite these, EastEnders is fiction in the Doctor Who Universe, as revealed in Army of Ghosts, just as characters like the Doctor and the Daleks are fictional in the continuity of EastEnders, and neither crossovers are considered to be canon.

The mini-episode that appeared on the National Television Awards also featured another crossover with EastEnders, with another appearance of Dot Cotton and a Coronation Street crossover as the character Becky McDonald appeared, as played by Katherine Kelly who'd later played Miss Quill in the Doctor Who spin-off Class.

The Christmas indents tend to be in the habit of this with the 2010 BBC Christmas ident being a crossover with Come Fly with Me, the 2012 BBC Christmas ident It's Showtime featured another crossover with Call the Midwife and it also featured Agnes Brown from the BBC sitcom Mrs Brown's Boys. Sprout Boy meets a Galaxy of Stars featured a crossover with many BBC characters such as John Luther from Luther, Sherlock Holmes with John Watson from BBC's Sherlock and Dot Cotton from EastEnders for the third time.

Mind My Minions was also a crossover, this time with Despicable Me spin off Minions and for the second time Coronation Street.

Looking for Pudsey crossed-over many shows including Strictly Come Dancing and The Great British Bake Off but only one non-real world show. The latter being yet again Call the Midwife with Jenny Agutter played her character again.

Implicit crossovers Edit

These usually consist of throwaway lines alluding to other fictional universes, are more common than actual appearances of characters from those universes, and are usually open to interpretation.
