This morning’s X-Files reunited post reminded me (okay, I admit I never really forgot) just how much we’ve always wanted Gillian and David to get together, and then I realized we also sort of love Gillian with Mads, and Gillian with…well, you get the picture. Basically, this could have been just another Gillian love-fest, but why not mix up things a little? So here, in no particular order, are eleven (current) television pairs we wouldn’t mind seeing get together in real-life. And yeah, some of them have multiple entries. Feel free to add your own, but they must (I insist!) be paired on a currently-in-production television series.

Gillian Anderson and Mads Mikkelsen (Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier and Hannibal Lecter, Hannibal)


Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny (Dana Scully and Fox Mulder, The X-Files)


Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan (Stella Gibson and Paul Spector, The Fall)
