Mindy Kaling PLAYS a doctor and Outlander’s Jamie Fraser was INSPIRED BY The Doctor’s adventures so it seems only fitting that the three should collide at some point in space and time, right?
Well, they did. Yes, Mindy Kaling brought a time-travelling Scotsman back to the Tardis.
“Diana [Gabaldon] got the inspiration for Outlander, or the character Jamie Fraser, from Doctor Who. She was watching an episode and there was a character called Jamie [companion Jamie McCrimmon, first seen in The Highlanders] who was in a kilt and that’s where she got the first spark,” actor – and Radio Times TV Champion 2015 – Sam Heughan told Radio Times earlier this year.
And he’s definitely up for a crossover. “I love Doctor Who – I’d love to do sci-fi,” he said. “Maybe there’s a crossover there as well,” he added, suggesting that Outlander and Doctor Who could easily combine. “It would work. I could come out of the Tardis – that’d be awesome. Let’s make this happen! If we could do that, that’d be great.”
Mindy Kaling’s taken us one step closer, and Sam’s co-star Caitriona Balfe approves.
Someone call Steven Moffat. We want to write an episode of series ten.
