‘The Middleman’ meets ‘Doctor Who’ in fanfic

It’s kind of a geek’s dream come true.

“The Middleman,” a comic book series and much-beloved, yet short-lived ABC Family TV series – now available on DVD – has been called “America’s ‘Doctor Who.'” In a new bit of dreamy time-travel sci-fi, the Middleman actually meets Doctor Who!

Needless to say, there was much rejoicing in the nerd community over this work of fan fiction, including “Middleman” star Natalie Morales’ response that the author “wrote her dreams.”

What is unusual about this particular fanfic, is the fact that the writer is Javier Grillo-Marxuach, the creator of “The Middleman.”

CNN Geek Out spoke with Grillo-Marxuach, a fanboy who is also known for his work on “Lost,” “Medium” and “Jake 2.0,” about this meeting of the Middleman and the Doctor.

CNN Geek Out: What inspired you to write this fanfic? Are you a big “Doctor Who” fan?

Grillo-Marxuach: I became a fan in the late ’70s. I grew up in Puerto Rico, where they ran the Tom Baker adventures as a strip at 7 on weekdays.
