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

Explicit crossovers Edit

Television Edit

There have been two 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.

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.
