Description: Long before The Great Mouse Detective existed, Basil's voice actor, Barrie Ingham, made a guest appearance in the TV series Doctor Who (opposite William Hartnell as the First Doctor) in 1965. He was Paris in the story arc, The Myth Makers. That same year he played an alien named Alydon (opposite Peter Cushing as Dr. Who) in the film, Dr. Who and the Daleks. Fifty years later on November 7, 2015, the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) told his friend Osgood (Ingrid Oliver) that his first name was Basil (from the Doctor Who Series 9 episode, The Zygon Inversion). There's been other connections of the classic British TV series and Disney animated feature, but those are just a few reasons why I decided to make this encounter a reality. I had the opportunity to meet with the Twelfth Doctor himself, and after much consideration, I passed along the beanie plush version of the mouse detective as a gift.
