Doctor Who fan Kaitlyn Iadevaia of Oklahoma was delighted with the way her home-built TARDIS turned out. The police box model which she worked on with her father, also a fan.
So imagine their distress when they found thatthe six-foot tall replica was gone from its regular home in the family backyard!
“It didn’t have property value,” the girl said. “But it did have sentimental value. I’d just really like it back.”
Meanwhile, Kaitlyn’s father was clearly riled, and called the thieves “big gonads”, possibly the greatest insult you’ll hear all year.
“I can’t see why anyone would take the darn thing, unless they’re a big Doctor Who fan and want to put it in their bedroom.”
Apparently, police are investigating the theft of the replica, which was curiously described as a “bus shelter”, and weighs a not-inconsiderable 300 pounds.
We would hope that the perpetrators of this thoughtless theft see sense and return the blue box to Kaitlyn.
