Real Life TARDIS

Doctor Who's TARDISThere’s a great Doctor Who-inspired feature in The Guardian at present, the centrepiece of which is a slideshow of the many policeboxes currently found in Edinburgh.

Scotland seems to be a haven for the late policebox – Glasgow has at least one, and many in Edinburgh have been converted for new tasks such as little coffee shops.

Introducing the slideshow, the Guardian asks:

Suddenly, everywhere you look in Edinburgh, there are police boxes. Were they there before? Why didn’t we notice them? Have they suddenly appeared as an advertising feature?

Or is the Doctor real, and the whole television series an elaborate smokescreen designed to obscure our myriad sightings of the real Tardis and make us think that we’re looking at nothing more extraordinary than old, disused police boxes?

It has to be the latter.

Let it be the latter.
