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?
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!
