There's an issue of Buffy Season 8 (written by Joss of course) where in one scene in England, there's a panel where there's a police box and you can see the Doctor and Rose walking down the street.
I jumped up and down and cheered when I saw that.
Which issue?? I only just got hold of the first 5 issues when I visited a comic shop in London, my local one having closed down :(
It's in issue 6, the beginning of the Faith story arc called No Future For You. It's on the second to last page.
Only the telephone box is red and the color scheme of the doctor's clothes are reversed. He's wearing a blue coat and brown pinstripe suit as opposed to the other way around.

And, just so we're clear, this was not a Joss-written issue.
Issue 10 (which really is written by Joss Whedon) does have a building that is larger on the inside than the outside, but...
Joss is still the executive producer of season 8 and works closely with both Vaughn and the artists.
Even if it's not written by him, he still oversees the scripting, art style and plot points just the same as he did on the series when one of his other writers penned an episode.
In short, if something like that is in there, Joss knows and and he more than approves it.
And when I stated written by Joss, what I meant was that he's behind the project and not the specific issue in question.
In the past there have been Buffy comics which have sucked (and not in the fun way) because Joss had nothing to do with the project.
That's what I meant when i stated written by Joss.
hehe i thougt of you when i saw this post and low and behold you are the first commenter. lol.
Joss should totally do something with Doctor Who, what with the writer's strike here and all.
The WGA don't want people working on shows abroad which then get resold to the US, I believe.
Although Joss is in London at the moment. He just needs to head west a bit to Cardiff Bay.
For those interested in that sort of thing, may I direct you to The Man With No Name
, a Doctor Who/Serenity crossover. Enjoy.
Hah, brilliant. I love crossover fanfics ^_^

I just finished reading this, on this recommendation, and now my husband is reading it. I was amazed by it, loved it and thought it was so much fun to have my two favorites together. My husband is only a few chapters into it but feels the same. HIGHLY recommend!
I think that's awesome of David Tennant to be a fan of firefly.
That is pure, unfiltered awesomesauce!!!!!!!111!11!!!1 =D

I have to disagree on one point: the Big Damn Movie, if anything, lives up to Firefly and just barely at that -- let alone topping it.
SQUEEEE! My two favorite fandoms collide! Can you imagine how brilliant it would be to have Joss direct an episode of DW? My head would explode with fangirl joy.
Please no Joss in Torchwood!
He can have Tennant.
