As you may be aware, Fortnite already has a pretty diverse roster of skins, with anime heroes and terrifying-looking goats regularly lining up next to recreations of streamers like Ninja and Dr Disrespect and even celebrities like Dwayne Johnson and John Cena.

The result of this can be a rather surreal visual experience, which is undeniably unique, if not a little confusing.

However, rumours continue to circulate suggesting ways in which the game’s cast could become even more varied, with a supposed Doctor Who collaboration being the current hot topic among some fans on Reddit.

Which Doctor would you most like to play?

Their discussions were spurred by a couple of tweets from Fortnite leakers @FNBRintel and @ShiinaBR, both of whom have claimed that a collaboration between Fortnite and the long-running sci-fi show is in development.

According to the former, items based on the collaboration “probably won't be released for a few months”, seemingly placing its arrival in early 2023.

Despite this, some gamers on the subreddit r/GamingLeaksAndRumours have seemingly already picked out which skins they’d like to see come out of it, with one user saying: “Give me (the) 6th doctor with a pump shotgun god, please, I beg you.” and Dreamerfrostbite adding: “I don't usually play Fortnite but I'm a huge Doctor Who fan and would love a playable war Doctor skin!”

On the other hand, user feelthebernerd had a different doc at the top of their wishlist, musing: “I'd buy a Peter Capaldi 12th Doctor skin in a heartbeat.”, while strunggle simply seemed psyched about the meme-worthy gameplay footage the potential collaboration might generate, declaring: “I can't wait to see clips of (times) when the Xenomorph kamehamehahas an RPG wielding tenth Doctor.”

Meanwhile, a couple of users were a little less enthusiastic about the prospect of everyone’s favourite time lord taking a Tardis ride to Loot Lake, with RaspberryBang asking: “Does your average Fortnite player even know what Dr. Who is?”
