    They are two of the most dedicated fan groups in sci-fi, so when both turned up to the same convention it was always going to get heated.

    When Doctor Who fans gatecrashed the much-anticipated Norwich Star Wars Club open day, the family event quickly turned ugly.

    Fans of the BBC1 series had turned up uninvited at the University of East Anglia convention last weekend.

    But their 'long-running rivalry' meant police had to be called to keep the two warring sic-fi factions apart.

    The event had returned after a three-year absence and reunited the four remaining actors who played bounty hunters in the George Lucas films.

    Nerrrrrrrrd fight!
    We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.
    In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.

    Yeah, I always thought it was the Trekkies vs. Star Wars fans. I didn't realize Dr. Who fans had become a force to reckon with in the nerd world.

    We need to worry if two of the groups form an alliance, there'll be a bloodbath.
