Back in Integra’s office:

Integra: There was nobody in the used bookstore except for the owner. He was the one we were looking for…

Pip: What was he, then?

Seras: A monster? A vampire?

Integra: No…

…a pudgy little man in tartan.

Aziraphale: Can I help you find something?

Aziraphale doesn’t look pudgy, just nervous (then again, this is Integra he’s facing.)

Friday: Wait, but when did – … So how did she – … Rebecca said – …. I think I SORTA get it, but could someone explain a bit further?

Sunday: LOLOLOLOLOL SPACEBALLS: THE HELLSING PARODY! XD And why is there no Enrico action figure yet? Is it just because he wouldn’t be a very good action figure?

Today: HOORAY AZIRAPHALE! (finally finished “Good Omens” and is feeling quite awesome) WHeeeeeeeeee!!

Aziraphale!!!!

…Wait…why is he being polite? People are in his bookstore…coming to take his books away! Where are the Evil Glares and Divine Interventions to protect his precious collection?!

I would imagine an angel would be polite. As for the evil glares – I haven’t read the book, but I suppose that’s Crowley’s duty.

Aziraphale is polite up to the point when people come into his bookstore and try to buy his BOOKS. Honestly, people are insane.

You know, with all this talk of a Doctor Who crossover, something strange has hit me: Just how are the jurisdictional lines drawn between Hellsing and Torchwood? During the period Shine covers, there is almost certainly an active Torchwood presence in London and I can see the old Torchwood resorting to some underhanded tactics to freeze out other secret agencies. And Torchwood is the older agency, too, since Hellsing was founded after the events of Dracula in the 1890s and Torchwood was founded around ’79 or whenever the Doctor met those Scottish kung-fu monks.

Re: founding of torchwood. It was that time with what might have been the hound of the baskerviles.

Re: pre-battle of canary wharf torchwood, I’d agree, but if memory serves they were each founded to combat different things. Hellsing was never really intended to deal with aliens, despite the fact that they could. Whereas Torchwood was usually intended to combat aliens and other extraterrestrial threats. Despite the fact that they could probably handle vamps. It’s possible that they might have come into official conflicts with each other, it’s more likely that’d only happen if their juridisctions crossed, like some sort of vampire from space.

*Cough*Plasmavore*Cough*

And the Great Vampires or whatever that the Time Lords supposedly wiped out a long time ago. You know, the Time Lords have supposedly killed off a lot of races over the aeons, but they (almost?) always leave enough survivors to make trouble later. I certainly wouldn’t hire the Doctor if he hung a Pest Control sign on the TARDIS.

Hmm…Great Vampires. There’s something that might give Alucard a good fight.

Xuanwu on Sun Dec 14, 2008 10:46 pm

The Doctor’s pretty good about wiping things out when he needs to. It’s the other Time Lords who are sloppy.

I can support this claim, rather I mean to say I can support Xuanwu’s claim. The family. He was REALLY pissed at them. He made sure they’ll never cause trouble ever again. And if the usual reference to them continuing to come back being the daleks, lets be honest. The daleks are easily one of the most advanced foes the doc ever fought. And they are tenacious buggers, I mean hel, the daleks in series 4 were built entirely from scratch because the last dalek in existence (he was the only one that could have done anything, we’re not going to mention the few hundred or few thousand that were in the time lord prison ship) went back to a time locked period at the cost of his sanity to save the creator of the first daleks so he could create a whole new dalek empire.

As for the great vampires? Let ’em come. I know a few people in LA that could handle them. I know I’d love to see what Spike’d make of them. To quote Angel after the Fall, “TWO TIMES! SPIKE SURVIVES THE BIG BAD! NOT JUST ANY BAD! THE BIGGEST BADS!” I’m pretty sure a combined coalition of the slayer army of season 8 and the full force of Angel Investigations (Get Cordy in on upper planar fire support somehow) and bring them on. *yes I am sadly such a buffyverse fan, but they do have experience with Apocalypses, also to quote Giles, “the vampire that vampires fear* speaking of course of the turak-han*

Yeah, I should probably stop the buffyverse speeches…I’ll be good.

Athos on Mon Dec 15, 2008 8:40 am

Well, there’s also the Racnoss in the third series and even the Doctor missed one of the Slitheen…and some of the Cybermen…and the Royal Family might be werewolves.

Of course, the Fourth Doctor did supposedly deal with the last Great Vampire many many years ago. And they were big enough that they had to be staked with freaking spaceships. Even Angel would need to climb one Shadow of the Colossus style and then tunnel into the bastard to reach the heart. Unless he tripped and hit one of the spikier skyscrapers, which would be just plain lame.

I’m not going to lie, I read the article on the Great Vampires after I wrote the post. Though now that you’ve put the mental image of the scoobies using Time Lord starships to stake vamps I can’t get it out. And if I read the article correctly the reason for the starships was because they needed an absurd amount of kinetic energy to punch through their chest. Which is similar to the turak-han. Which was possible to stake, just freaking hard. I’d be able to put together a better argument on this point if I had some better idea for the size of one of the Great Vampires.
