Some good ones here. Too bad for Dresden - I've argued before that he can punch above his weight class, but I think The Doctor is probably more than he can handle.

Agree, although Dresden has a boon: The doctor likely can't use the TARDIS or the sonic screwdriver due to Dresden's tech interference field?

Possibly. Two things to take into account:

They are both very advanced technology - so possibly more susceptible to interference.

OTOH, given the nature of what the Doctor encounters regularly, it's possible they are shielded against various forms of interference and Dresden's style of magic could fall into that category.

With all of that, I'd say the Sonic Screwdriver is more likely to be taken out, the TARDIS less likely.

Votes:


The interesting thing about this fight is that while I love league of legends, I'm gonna have to say that Kat loses this one, because her ability to teleport is matched and surpassed by Hermione's ability to apparate. Without that advantage she's just a girl with knives,and Hermione has all sorts of spells to counter her every skill.

Thing about Dresden and the Doctor is that they both normally punch outside their weight class and win. It's an interesting matchup for sure.

The cool thing is there's definite grounds for them to battle. As Warden for the White Council, Dresden would be obligated to investigate and possibly prevent time travel, as the risk of doing damage to reality is too great.

Doesn't the doctor sort of police time travel for the same reason?

Sort of, yeah.

A big difference, though, is that Dresden is authorized to use deadly force to carry out his commission, while the Doctor has a rule against killing.

I see the Doctor/Dresden fight happening a couple different ways:

1. We could say that the Doctor is a creature from outside the Dresdenverse. Well, the Dresden files has a word for beings like that- they're called Outsiders. As a Starborn, Dresden has particular power to defeat Outsiders, and in fact has defeated one of the most powerful and dangerous- He Who Walks Behind- on three occasions.

2. We could say that the Doctor's universe is in a region of the Nevernever, shaped by the collective thoughts of humanity. That happens too, in the Dresdenverse. However, in this case, Dresden being the pop-culture buff that he is, would know things like the fact that Time Lords are vulnerable to aspirin and be able to improvise a defense against him. Plus, I doubt the Doctor is as scary or powerful as someone like a Faery Queen (Dresden has killed two) or the Red King (Dresden killed him).

3. We could say that the Doctor has just dropped by the Dresdenverse in the normal course of things. As mentioned above, Dresden is authorized to use deadly force to prevent time travel and apprehend time travelers, while the Doctor avoids this. However, I think in this case the Doctor would realize the White Council is one of the good guys in this situation, trying to protect humanity from destruction of the timeline, and eventually leave. That would leave Dresden the victor.

tl;dr: Dresden has faced things like the Doctor before, whatever we may say his relationship to the Dresdenverse is, and come out on top.

The Doctor isn't just going to leave. Again. The fighters are here to fight, for what ever reason they have to fight. The Doctor has dealt with people with power before. His reputation alone is enough to make those more powerful run away screaming into the night.

Why shouldn't we believe that Harry hears the Doctor's name, wets his pants, and crawls into the fetal position?

The Doctor may legitimately win this but this is in no way consistent with Dresden's character. Giving up or just running away is not in his nature, even when he seems to be hopelessly outclassed.

This is one reason that he punches above his weight class: if he's outmatched so he's going to do everything he can to level the playing field or gain an advantage. This does not include giving up and running away.

Win or lose, Dresden's going to make a fight of this.
