Try and look as nonchalant as you want, whenever a Doctor Who story comes along that reveals more of the interiors of the TARDIS it’s pretty much a guarantee that your eyeballs will start sweating and the fanboy side of you will come out. It could be on the train, at work, even during an anniversary that’s dear to you (“I love you darli…My God, Was that a Cloister I just saw?!)
So it’s with incredible, exhilarating excitement that we look forward to one of the more talked about upcoming episodes in Series 7 – Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS.
And make no mistake, this isn’t a cop-out, this isn’t a misleading title where all we get to see is the TARDIS refrigerator and a dusty, long forgotten time space visualiser blocking off a few roundels, this is the one where the Doctor shows us more of the TARDIS than we’ve ever seen before. More than The Doctor’s Wife, more than any eighties episode, more than The Invasion of Time and more than Inside the Spaceship (yes, that is what it’s called).
Steven Moffat revealed in the video interview shown at the Gallifrey One convention in Los Angeles that the production team has built the rest of the TARDIS and that there are some great visuals to look forward to. Considering the fact the TARDIS is probably infinite in size, we’re sure it won’t quite cover that distance but you can bet your bottom dollar that this is an episode that is going to deliver.
Michael Pickwoad, the designer responsible for the latest design of the TARDIS console room first seen in 2012’s The Snowmen has taken the responsibility to create the rest of the Doctor’s impossible home and we can’t wait to see what he’s come up with.
Doctor Who returns to BBC One on March 30th 2013, Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS will most likely air in April.
