Evolution of the TARDIS Key: Brian A. Terranova’s Collection

Fans with a keen eye for detail will enjoy this intriguing curiosity put together by Kasterborous’s very own Brian A. Terranova. Regular cosplayer and Tenth Doctor lookalike Brian has accumulated an impressively researched collection of every TARDIS key ever featured on screen in the programme.

It’s fair to say the keys fall into two distinct categories: the more elaborate, sci-fi implements used by Doctors Three, Four, Seven and Eight and the rather more everyday… well, door keys, really.

But that’s not to under-sell the fine work Brian has done to gather this beautifully presented set. Evidently one with a keen eye for accuracy, he goes to impressive lengths in his commentary to ensure we get the full facts on each version of the key, whilst taking care not to make any inaccurate claims:

“The TV Movie key is not a replica, it is the same 800-Trekker key that was used in the show. That is I bought mine from the same place as the TVM did, not that my key is the screen used one. But they are identical.”

We like your style, Brian. What do you think? Is an ordinary Yale just right for a citizen of the universe like the Doctor? Or does he deserve something a little more other-wordly to let himself in after a hard day saving the galaxy?

has watched Doctor Who since those great big spiders did for Jon Pertwee, and it's way too late to stop now. When he's not at his job working for a charity he spends his time following Hull City's fortunes, listening to Bruce Springsteen and wondering why it took thirty years too long for Doctor Who action figures to come along.
