Let's see how they do when they go toe-to-toe with each other...
Harry Potter Vs. Merlin
Of course, the Doctor is friends with Harry Potter (remember his shedding a tear at Deathly Hallows in 'The Shakespeare Code'?). Meanwhile, Merlin is on Team Sherlock because, um, well, because I say so.
Their magical melee is quite evenly matched, as both are talented wizards. Merlin might be the greatest sorcerer of all time, but Harry managed to defeat the darkest wizard ever. Things are tight until, at the last moment, Harry whips out the invincible Elder Wand and defeats Merlin.
Team Doctor wins!
River Song Vs. Agent Carter
When the Doctor's wife and Captain America's lost love (she's from an American franchise but, make no mistake, Peggy Carter is as British as a bulldog) come to blows it is a very close call, as both are very formidable fighters and skillful shooters. If this was Time Lord psychopath River she might have the advantage but this is the older version so, nope, no one can beat the other.
Team Doctor and Team Sherlock draw!
(If you're wondering, Peggy Carter is on Team Sherlock due to the detective and her sharing connections with the British secret service The same goes for one of our next pair...)
Captain Jack Harkness Vs. James Bond
Finally. The world's two most dashing, lethal and not to mention immortal government agents go at it to prove who is the best.
The duo's duel at dawn is a close one, but there can only be one outcome. James Bond never dies whereas Jack pops his clogs all the time (he just gets better afterwards), Therefore, 007 must win this one - no doubt shooting off a quip as he shoots Jack down. Soon afterwards, though, Jack is back on his feet and the two go off to enjoy an entirely different rendezvous. But that's a story for another time...
Team Sherlock wins!
The Doctor Vs. Sherlock
Here's the big one - although it isn't a slug match like the rest. These two great minds decide to test their mettle in a much more cerebral challenge - board games. Which ones? Operation and Cluedo, obviously!
Cluedo does not go well, as Sherlock maintains that the murder victim killed himself while the Doctor claims he doesn't need to work out the killer because he can just go back in time and save Dr Black. Things descend into argument.
Operation is equally tense, as Sherlock effortlessly removes the spanner without making the board buzz while the Doctor coaxes out the butterfly with ease. However, just as the final move is being made, the pair suddenly bond over how
So there you have it, Team Doctor and Team Sherlock draw! Who would have thunk it...
