The Eleventh Doctor's new TARDIS interior design revealed!

Moffat: TARDIS Is “actually a machine”

An alien space-time ship that is bigger on the inside is bound to be a bit scare, right? Could it be that Steven Moffat’s decision to redesign the time machine’s interior is based on something more than 1960s nostalgia?

The Eleventh Doctor's new TARDIS interior design revealed!

Speaking at a recent press screening of The Snowmen, Steven Moffat revealed his thoughts about the redesigned TARDIS interior, set to be revealed in the Doctor Who Christmas special

I thought we’d been getting progressively whimsical with the interior of the TARDIS.

I started to think, ‘Well, why is that? It’s not a magical place. It’s actually a machine’. And actually potentially, as you’ll see more spectacularly later, quite a scary place sometimes. We make a lot of use of that.

We sure that you, like us, can’t wait to see the full interior on your TVs, particularly the 360° shot – one for watching on the BBC One HD channel, we reckon!
