    According to digital spy and an interview with RTD...

    "Russell T Davies is happy for Torchwood characters to appear in Doctor Who should he come up with a suitable idea, he has revealed.

    "I think the lines are becoming blurred... now that there's a pre-watershed Torchwood repeat," showrunner Davies told Doctor Who Magazine. "We're building a strong, coherent, interconnected universe... but the answer, as ever, is story. If ever I think of a good story for Doctor Who and Torchwood to meet then I'll do it."

    Davies does have one caveat about this potential crossover: "The only limit, I think, would be having The Doctor appear in Torchwood itself. Because the 9 o'clock transmission comes first, that would be putting a children's hero into the wrong environment. But anything else is possible!"

    Torchwood regulars Captain Jack Harkness and Toshiko Sato both made their first appearances in Doctor Who, featuring in the stories 'The Empty Child' and 'Aliens Of London' respectively. The Doctor's former companion Martha Jones, played by Freema Agyeman, will also star in several Torchwood episodes during the second series."

    I thought I'd post this in a new thread because we've discussed the possibility about the team appearing in Who before and I think it'll be a good idea (as long as the Doctor doesn't appear in TW) and I thought we could discuss it more here and discuss possible plots for why torchwood could appear in Who.

    I would like to see Ianto in Doctor who, only for a minute or so, before he was working for Torchwood, just as some ones Tea boy or something.
    It would be cool, and it wouldnt alienate those (crazy) NuHu fans who dont like TW.

    Oh yeah, Ianto as a tea boy for someone before Torchwood, in Doctor Who would be fantastic! BUT the Doctor has to talk to him.

    Hell, I'd be happy seeing Gwen and Rhys walking in the background where the Doctor may be... Somewhere in Cardiff.

    I wanna see Tosh scurrying past in the background, never mind Gwen & Rhys xD They could all have a team outing or something, and just not notice that the Doctor was there..

    I'd like for Tosh and Jack to meet The Doctor, and for her to realize they have met before, and finding out that he was Jacks Doctor . Mainly becaurse I want Jack and Tosh to develop a deeper friendship (not love)

    I'm always in for that, I don't think it'll happen in a crossover though

    Exactly what sort of 'streaking' are we talking about here, becuase remember it's DW, not TW that's the crossover for her.

    well DW was actually her first appearance so in a way all her appearances on TW are a crossover.

    I think it'll be cool if in a TW episode a member of the team gets into some kind of intergalactic trouble when an alien through the rift comes and kidnaps them for some weird reason and Jack and the team hunt down the doctor to get him/her back and the episode continues in a DW ep tracking their teammate down... *shrugs* something like that

    My vote is an emphatic NO

    Any Torchwood "visitor" to DW will need to be accompanied with a whole explaination of who they are and how they fit, or viewers of DW who have not followed the spinoffs will be totally confused.

    Why not a Torchwood story where one of the kids from the Sarah Jane Adventures winds up saving the day against the Sliveen in Cardiff ?

    It fits the DW universe, but it would make a horrible episode.

    eh, i dont think the explanation would be that serious, just an intro about the length of the one jack gave to martha in reset, saying who everybody is, "and we're torchwood three" or something.

    I'm sorry.... Kids saving the day in Torchwood? I hate that idea

    If a Slitheen story came up, I'd much prefer The Doctor than kids

    Oh, good! I swear, kids on Torchwood will just make me want to punch them out... As harsh as that is. I hate goodie-goodie know-it-all, I've-saved-the-day-again kids!
