Former Doctor Who stars David Tennant, Matt Smith, and Alex Kingston traveled through space and time to gather at New York Comic Con on Friday and reminisce about their time spent in the TARDIS. Accompanied by Aaron Sagers, who served as the host for the event, they made sure the evening was a night to remember for Whovians the world over.
During the tremendously fun panel, Tennant gushed over actress Jodie Whittaker, who will take over as the famed Time Lord beginning with the Season 11 premiere on Sunday, Oct. 7. "It's very exciting. She's very cool. She's a very funky choice and she's gonna be magnificent," he said.
Whittaker makes history this season as the first woman to ever portray the Doctor, and she'll be joined by three new companions — Ryan (Tosin Cole), Yasmin (Mandip Gill) and Graham (Bradley Walsh) — who are ready to jump into the action.
The conversation eventually drifted to dream crossovers with characters they've played, and Smith pitched an epic team up with The Crown. "I think Phil and the Doctor would really get on," he said. For Kingston, her perfect pairing would be the Doctor and the titular character from The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Moll Flanders. But it was Tennant's pitch that left the crowd in stitches. He pitched a crossover between Doctor Who and DuckTales, which really does sound delightful.
"I would like to see Scrooge McDuck in the TARDIS," he said. "Scrooge McDuck's like the first Doctor. It would be like the story Peter Capaldi did. It would have to be all animated. Or would you have Scrooge McDuck as a real-life character?"
As we've seen already, anything can happen on Doctor Who! Plus, if Supernatural can cross over with Scooby-Doo, why can't we make this happen?
Doctor Who returns Sunday, Oct. 7 at 1:45 p.m. ET / 10:45 a.m. PT on BBC America. You can also catch a special encore that night in the show's regular time slot of 8/7c.
