The TARDIS is Everywhere!
Don’t ever tell me that the Doctor isn’t real.Â The Geekest Link has made sure to snuff the beliefs of any doubters of the truth behind the time-and-space man who has us all gathered here today by publishing an extensive and highly enjoyable collection of TARDIS sightings in the non-Doctor-Who media simply to prove that every Whovian’s dream of a blue 1950s police box cross-fading onto his or her patio one day is an entirely plausible fantasy.
From musicians’ album art to video game in-jokes and appearances in half-witted comedy programmes, both immediately eye-catching and cleverly Easter-egged, this compilation of TARDIS appearances may not qualify as news or reviews, but it should certainly brighten your Monday.Â Exercise your brain a little and try to find the hidden TARDISes in not one, but two Iron Maiden covers and a snapshot from Red Dwarf.Â Or if it’s a laugh you’re after, check out the web series TARDIS Taxi, the first episode of which features Stephen Hawking and can be found on the page, along with a clip of a relatively un-TARDIS-related, ridiculously square Dalek being smashed to smithereens by a police car to the beloved-by-many-a-fan tune of Doctorin’ the TARDIS.
To wrap things up, The Geekest Link provides an amusing 39 seconds from the Tom Baker era of Doctor Who itself, showing the TARDIS being admired in a museum as an art form, appropriate considering the exhibit-centric episode we were given last Saturday in the form of Vincent and the Doctor.
So, if you’re in the mood for a fifteen-minute fix of pure Whovian entertainment but you think you’ve seen all the web has to offer, think again – you’ll soon find your ears freshly peeled, listening for the whirs of a time machine’s improperly-utilized braking system in the vicinity of your place of residence, for a long time to come.
