Doctor Who was a science fiction television series in the 20th and 21st centuries.

The main character in the program was known as the Doctor, a renegade Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey, who traveled through time and space in his TARDIS righting various wrongs. The Doctor could survive fatal injuries through a process known as regeneration, which also changed his physical appearance and personality. This characteristic allowed for several actors to portray the character over the long course of the series.

It should be noted that Doctor Who has yet not been mentioned by name within Trek sources. The above information comes from real-world sources.

In the 23rd century, episodes of this series were carried in the memory banks of Federation starships, such as the USS Enterprise. In 2275, Jerry Freeman, Nyota Uhura and Harb Tanzer converted an episode into a three-dimensional hologram in the Enterprise's recreation room. They and James T. Kirk saw a time machine materialize and the main character step out and ask if he was in Heathrow. (TOS novel: My Enemy, My Ally).

This line never appeared in real-world Doctor Who suggesting this series progressed differently. However the televised "Time-Flight" does feature the Doctor and his ship arriving at Heathrow.

Due to the popularity of the series, several Doctor Who–related references have appeared in Star Trek episodes and related media.

Several authors of Star Trek novels have contributed short stories and novels to the Doctor Who franchise, including David A.

Beginning in May 2012, and continuing until the fall of that year, IDW released an official 8-issue Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who crossover miniseries titled Assimilation². The storyline focused on the Enterprise-D crew encountering the Eleventh Doctor and his companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams, though one issue also depicted Capt. Kirk and the crew of the original NCC-1701 encountering the Fourth Doctor, who is traveling alone. The storyline also features the first encounter between the Cybermen (a cybernetic humanoid race intent on assimilating others, introduced in 1966) and the Borg (a cybernetic humanoid race intent on assimilating others, introduced in TNG).
