Can youtube sue the police for lost revenue from the epic video that would have been?

I've seen plenty of Star Wars vs Star Trek arguments in my nerdy life... but not a lot of Star Wars vs Doctor Who arguments. I'd assume there is a decent amount of overlap between the two fan bases.

Were half of them going to slap themselves in the face?

PSA: Never bring a sonic screwdriver to a blaster fight.

/Glad the Police broke up the fight before anyone got scratched.

That's no biggie. As clkeagle said, that has to be a huge sub-set. What if it were Breaking Bad vs Doctor Who instead?

The sonic screwdriver: not as clumsy or random as a blaster. An elegant weapon, for a more civilized age.

"Bloody" brawl? Oh right, from all the spontaneous nose-bleeds.

Aw hell, I'd rather see the Star Wars fans brawl with the Trekkers. Then we DW fans can stand around looking smugly superior.

Oh, God, yes! I LOVE that episode. Inspired by the cast's trips to Comic-Con, btw.

Obviously the Conan the Barbarian fans or Mad Max fans are more likely to win this sort of thing.

If a gold bikini-clad Princess Leia cosplayer were to wrestle with a miniskirted Amy Pond cosplayer, sweating and grunting and emitting the occasional high-pitched shriek, I would be fine with that.

I always love to jerk a Stormtrooper's chain by telling them "The only reason Palpatine managed to conquer the galaxy was because there were no Klingons or Daleks in it".

There's nothing more unholy in this world than Nerd Rage.
Glad the police got there in time... before you know it, they'd be sticking those light-sabers and sonic-screws in each other's bungholes.

A blaster? How very uncivilised.

Looks like some fans really need some pan galactic gargle blaster.  I'll ask Capt. Reynolds to smuggle some in.

Good Lord...  I can imagine how that scenario plays out...

*lightsaber fizzles out*

*Darth Vader extends hand, and telekinetically rips sonic screwdriver out of The Doctor's grasp, like Han Solo's blaster in Cloud City*

DW: "Well now, that's a nice trick."
DV: "Your accent... are you from Coruscant? Who are you?"
DW: *extends hand* "I am The Doctor.  Pleased to meet you."
DV: "Doctor *who*?!"
DW:  "Why, yes... have we met in my future?"

*Darth Vader extends hand and begins to force choke The Doctor*

DV: "Insolent Rebel scum.  Do not underestimate my powers."

*DW pulls at collar, as if to loosen his bow tie, but otherwise exhibits little sign of distress*

DW: "Air seems... a bit thick in here. Ahhh, right. Telekinesis, like with the screwdriver.  Might have worked, with human physiology."

*Darth Vader angrily breaks off the Force Choke, and slams The Doctor against the blast door with a Force Push.  He angrily brandishes the sonic screwdriver.*

DV: "What is the nature of this device?  My lightsaber was built to withstand cortosis feedback, but you were able to deactivate it without contact-"

*The sonic screwdriver activates in his hand.  Lights on Vader's chestplate begin blinking furiously. His breathing becomes wheezy and irregular.  Vader clutches his throat, and rapidly succumbs as his life support systems go haywire*

*The Doctor gets up, dusts off his trousers, adjusts his jacket, and begins to inspect the unconscious Vader*

DW: "Now then, what have we here? Human physiology... mechanical upgrades... Goodness, you're the most sinister-looking Cyberman I've ever seen.  Special Halloween model?  Got quite a few bugs to work out though... that respiratory system needs a muffler, for starters."

Clever... But contact between primaries is not as interesting as all-out war between factions. With that in mind, I'd rather see the Empire versus the Daleks, winner take all.

You know the Daleks would kick all sorts of ass.

Maybe that's not fair. Perhaps it should be the Old Republic (Clone troopers, Jedi, and Wookiees) versus the combined force of the Sontarans, the Nestene Consciousness, and the Judoon.

Honestly, though, I'd settle for watching Han Solo kick the ever-loving shiat out of Mal in a blaster showdown, followed by Chewbacca ripping Jane's arms off, Luke slicing Tam in half, Leia beating the crap out of the space-whore, and R2 zapping the pixie engineer to a crisp. C-3PO could probably handle the rest of that pussy crew.

Came in expecting this to have spawned an argument on religion...well if you want a sht storm I guess you have to do it yourself.

Another group of people getting into fights over their differing fictional hero's. Call me when the crusades and suicide bombings start.

More nostalgia.

Triumph, being a puppet, is still one of the funnier comics out there.
