The TARDIS iPhone?

Doctor Who and politics seldom mix well together. Normally if the Doctor meets an authority figure, he has a severe lack of regard for them unless they prove themselves (unless he’s in his third incarnation in which case he was always up for a bit of elite brown-nosing).

Bring things into the real world and you will not find a lot of talk about Doctor Who in the world of politics.

Which is why it’s so odd that this picture has cropped up!

During a speech given by the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, regarding his $450 billion jobs act, a picture was taken of the crowd looking on in wonder. One woman seems to be recording events with a phone that looks exactly like a little TARDIS!

Not exactly something that you would expect to be brought along to a political debate.

Saying that, it could be a notebook or a Dictaphone but it is definitely in the style of our favourite little blue box!

A political onlooker with a penchant for Doctor Who? Or River Song in one of her incarnations trying to get the Time Lord’s attention?

You decide!

    The third doctor may look and act like an old Tory, but he’s actually as anti-establishment as any other doctor…don’t see him brown nosing politicians and elite see Chinn, Trenchard et al….

    the tardis phone is a scanner to check Barack Obama isn’t actually that doddy stand in they used in The End of Time
