Recreating the first TARDIS one more time

The first TARDIS was recreated for An adventure in Space and Time, and it was recreated once more for Christmas special episode in 2017, Twice Upon a Time. Steven Moffat and the cast can’t hide their excitement at being on the set of the original TARDIS.

A very special moment in time: TARDIS deconstruction timelapse.

Garden shed as life-sized TARDIS

Paul Foden, 44, is a handyman and Doctor Who fan from Stoke-on-Trent. Obsessed with the Time Lord and has previous made models of a Dalek and the robotic dog K9, he has devoted his spare time to building various Doctor Who-related items, such as a battle-scarred Dalek, a Cyberman, K9, and this garden shed, which looks like the TARDIS from the outside, and the inside too.

Handyman Paul spent almost 12 months working on the 12ft (3.6m) tall Tardis which now has pride of place in his back garden. Yesterday (Mon) he said: “I’ve been working on it for nearly a year and I’m just adding the last few details. “I watch Doctor Who and I thought the Tardis would be interesting to build so I decided to have a go.”

Gingerbread TARDIS Time-Lapse

Or, in other words, how to make a cake shaped as a TARDIS: to celebrate the release of the Doctor Who Cookbook the team promoting the show had a time-lapse of the Gingerbread TARDIS materialising.

Produced by Clarissa Pabi, presented by Joanna Farrow, shot and edited by Adrian Cecil.

The Silence

Throughout April 2016, the social media feeds have been celebrating the Silence. Let’s find out more about them in this TARDIS Index File.

The VFX artist John Smith started to Keep Counting, and probably he is still doing that. It’s hard to remember.

The Oods

Who are the Oods? Find out everything the TARDIS knows about the Ood in a brand new Index File of their Monsters of the Month (May 2016)!

On the other hand, the fan show discusses the series four story Planet of the Ood. With Christel Dee, Luke Spillane, Sarah Dollard and Chris Foxx.

TARDIS control & computer room

There are lots and lots of skilled Whovians ready to knock up a police box as a shed, or a cake, or the front of their wardrobe. Or even an item in their yard.

The Todd, for instance, has spent over a year creating a TARDIS in his back garden that contains a console that actually serves as a serviceable work desk, complete with hidden keyboard, DVD-drive, screen and flux capacitor.

Doctor Who wars: the TARDIS awakens trailer

This is what happens when someone is Doctor Who and Star Wars fan… a cross-over trailer that looks exciting and works perfectly! Almost 11 years ago (on March 26th 2005) the TARDIS has awaken and Rose Tyler crossed paths with the madman in the box and lots and lots of adventures. The Force also has awaken last December, not so good as I’ve noticed, but the Jedi adventure is still unfolding.

Ashildr from the Future, the ultimate imortal #Masiecam

Maisie Williams returns, much to the delight of Steven Moffat and Peter Capaldi!

Introduced in series 9, Ashildr was just a viking girl in the village the Doctor and Clara saved. Then she became something elese, a hibrid, an immortal. Then, in the final episode of series 9, she gets into a TARDIS, along Clara Oswald. You can watch Maisie Williams, Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman having fun on the classic TARDIS.

The very first TARDIS from Maisie Williams’ point-of-view!

If celebrities traveled by TARDIS

If Edie Falco, Ed Westwick, Beau Bridges, and other celebrities jumped in Doctor Who’s TARDIS and could travel anywhere in time and space, where would they go? Special Anglophenia correspondent Georgie Okell asked them that very question at the BAFTA Los Angeles TV Tea presented by BBC America on September 19, 2015.

Where would YOU go if you could travel by TARDIS?

How to make a TARDIS cake

On this week’s show Great British Bake Off winner and resident Doctor Who baker Edd Kimber showed the fan show guys how to make a TARDIS Battenburg cake! Presented by Christel Dee. Too bad it’s not bigger on the inside or it’s not flying through space and time, but it should be sweeter on the inside and it will make you want more!

TARDIS Battenburg cake recipe was made available

Battenburg Cake
350g unsalted butter, room temperature
350g caster sugar
1 1/2 tsp almond extract
6 medium eggs
280g plain flour
100g ground almonds
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
Black food colouring

Decoration
450g white marzipan
1-2tsp navy blue colouring
200g white sugarpaste

Buttercream
100g unsalted butter, room temperature
200g icing sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon extract

Lightly grease a two 9inch square cake pans with a little oil and line with a strip of parchment paper.

In a large bowl beat the butter and sugar together for 10 minutes until light and fluffy, then beat in the almond extract. Add the eggs a little at a time, beating until combined before adding more. Add the flour, almonds and baking powder and mix gently until just combined. Divide the batter equally between two bowls. Add about 1-2 tsp black food colouring to one bowl and about 1/2 tsp to another. Beat to combine. Scrape each batter into one of the prepared pans and level out. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes or until risen and coming away from the sides of the pan. Allow to cool in the pans for 15 minutes before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the buttercream place the butter into a large bowl and beat until smooth and creamy. Slowly add the icing sugar and once all has been combined beat in the vanilla and lemon. Beat the buttercream on high speed or until light and fluffy.

For the decoration knead about 1-2tsp of blue food colouring into the marzipan until uniform in colour.

Cut the cooled cake into equal sized strips, 5 from the black sponge and two from the grey (you can use the left over grey for another recipe). On a work surface lightly dusted with icing sugar roll out the marzipan into a large rectangle, big enough to wrap up the battenburg. Spread the marzipan with a thin layer of buttercream and assemble the cake strips into a battenburg (sticking exposed sides of cake with a little extra buttercream). Very carefully roll up the cake inside the marzipan. Trim off the ends to create a neat finish.

To give the cake its finished TARDIS decoration roll out the sugar paste on a work surface lightly dusted with icing sugar and cut out a rectangle just smaller than the top of the TARDIS. Lightly dampen the back of the rectangle with a little water and place this, damp side down, onto the cake. Use an edible marker pen to copy the text from the panel of the side of the TARDIS.

(Kept in a sealed container this cake will keep for up to three days)

Flying TARDIS over San Diego during Comic-Con

The video was recorded by Otto Dieffenbachm, a marketing director for Flyguy Promotions, a company that specializes in building flyable objects for brands, for his team film session with October Films LTD out of the UK. The interview and video will be seen in the US on Outrageous Acts of Science and in the UK on You’ve Been Warned.

The structure of the blue box is built from foam, wood, and carbon fiber, weighing four pounds. “It is bigger on the inside enabling it to house all the electronics for flight”, Otto joked. “The TARDIS is a radio-controlled platform that is more like a plane than a helicopter. It has four internal motors that supply 10 pounds of thrust and four flight control surfaces. In hover, during takeoff and landing, the motors and control surfaces provide guidance and stability. During horizontal flight, the control surfaces provide primary control.”
