Blue Peter TARDIS Winner Materialises

Back in Ye Olde 2009 flagship children’s television show Blue Peter ran a competition for viewers to create their own TARDIS console to appear, full realised, in an episode of Doctor Who– well that episode (Spoiler!)  is The Doctor’s Wife.

The winner was Susannah Leah whose  design, chosen by Matt Smith, featured in Tuesday’s edition of the show-including a small snippet of the ‘Junk TARDIS’ in action.

Presenter Helen Skelton guided the clearly embarrassed Leah first to achat with Production Designer Micheal Pickwoad, and then, via the magic of cheating, to the location for her TARDIS’ debut scene.

Ah nothing like the palbable air of excitement as you stand in the middle of a ‘top secret quarry location’ and watch the same scene replayed about a million times over, each time as near identical to the last, until finally someone blinks and calls cut.

What teenager wouldn’t love that!




And not only does she get to play a small but important role in the making of what promises to be a fantastic Who episode but she gets her ‘Junk Design’ design immortalised as a toy thanks to the good people at Character.

The set is likely to be available later in the year.

The whole shebang can be seen below, but be warned, the clip contains about 30 seconds of the episode itself…


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
