Dr. Seuss Writing a 'Doctor Who' Story? It's Possible, And Here's Why

Can you imagine "Cat in the Hat" creator Theodor Seuss Geisel penning a Doctor Who story? What a great meeting of fandoms that would be!

Well, it might happen -- at least, it's in the realm of possibility.
 
The site Hyperboble posits that Seuss might be among the “well-known children’s authors” to write a short "estory" in celebration of the Doctor's 50th anniversary this year. This supposition is based on a recent press release from the BBC announcing the project:
 
"A new series of Doctor Who stories is set to be published monthly to celebrate the 50th anniversary year of the hit television programme.
 
The 11 tales, known as "eshorts", will each be written by a well-known children's author.
 
Each story will feature one of the various regenerations of the Doctor, starting with William Hartnell, who played the character from 1963-1966."
 
The publisher of the stories refers to the authors as a "who's who of children's fiction" -- what such list wouldn't include Suess?
 
Right now this is all fannish speculation -- but the BBC will announce the first author on its Worldwide Doctor Who Facebook page on January 7, with the first story to go online on the 23rd of that month.

I will exterminate the Doctor in a boat
I will exterminate the Doctor in a plane
I will exterminate the Doctor with a goat
I will exterminate the Doctor with a train.

Since he's been dead for over twenty years, it'd be tough. Give new meaning to Time Lords....
