Allons-y! Police Called in Doctor Who/Star Wars Dispute
A heated argument arose between Doctor Who and Star Wars fans at a science fiction convention in UK.
"Police were called after members of the rival Norwich Sci-Fi club arrived to get autographs from two Doctor Who actors at the event on Sunday."
The treasurer of the Norwich Sci-Fi Fan Club, Jim Poole said there was a "history" of rivalry between the two groups.
Mr Poole said two other members of his club, one dressed as the 10th Doctor and the other as Judge Dredd, had waited outside the venue.
"This wasn't a fight between Star Wars fans and Doctor Who fans with lightsabers and sonic screwdrivers drawn," he said.
"It's a bit sad and pathetic. We're all in the same boat. We're not in competition.
"We'd like to extend the hand of friendship."
Fortunately, the clubs are "having discussions about a meeting to resolve their differences."
