7 pieces of evidence that suggest Doctor Who and Buffy The Vampire Slayer are set in the same universe

The Slayer and the Time Lord sure do seem to have a lot in common...

6. Jack Harkness and The Immortal One have a LOT in common

Handsome, charming, charismatic, immortal and, er, not opposed to a spot of sweet, sweet loving: we could be describing either Buffy’s Immortal or Doctor Who’s Jack. Who’s to say that they aren’t…. dun dun dun… THE SAME BEING?

We all know there’s a large chunk of time when Jack’s been unaccounted for; he did say he loved travelling through Italy in his rogue Time Agent days. And it just so happens Italy is one of The Immortal’s favourite haunts too.

Someone’s even written a full fanfic about The Immortal/Jack.


7. The Master gives both Buffy and The Doctor a fair bit of bother

Ok, so one’s a vampire and the other’s a Gallifreyan Time Lord, but there’s a fan explanation for that.

What if Roger Delgado’s Master found himself trapped on earth, was bitten by a vampire and then regenerated into the bloodsucking fiend who gives Buffy so much trouble?

And just like John Simm’s Master, Buffy’s Master is resurrected (off screen in the comics) by a group called the Seed of Wonder. He ends up being killed by a higher being, though.

Who knows what those Gallifreyan Time Lords can do when they get together to take down one of their own…
