Will we ever see a red Tardis?

See the picture partway down. Scottish police boxes were apparently red.

Would be cool for the Master's Tardis.

Re: Will we ever see a red Tardis?

Well at the moment unlikely due to the fact that the only TARDIS in existance is stuck in it's current form due to faulty a chameleon circuit. Though I guess anything is possible

Re: Will we ever see a red Tardis?

A scene where the Doctor is fiddling with the circuit, bangs it with his sonic screwdriver in frustration and the Tardis briefly turns red would be great...

It's probably red in the parallel universe on Fringe.

Not all of them, the ones in Edinburgh are blue. I think it would look weird!

It's easy to spot Red, Blue and Purple around town plus a crazed White one near the Pleasance.

Re: Will we ever see a red Tardis?

according to the article only glasgow ones were red. so i'd assume the rest of scotland had blue too.

Now that's just begging for a crossover. Can you imagine The Doctor meeting Walter?

Re: Will we ever see a red Tardis?

I'll betcha if she catches the Doctor snuggling up to another TARDIS, she'll see Red

And, she doesn't have a defective Chameleon Circuit, she's just partial to the Blue Police Box look. (She did have a defective Chameleon Circuit when 6 started messing around with it, trying to force her to change, though).

Re: Will we ever see a red Tardis?

There was also a red one in east London - it was used as the fire control station for one of the Thames tunnels (the Blackwall tunnel ISTR... not there now, was until the mid 1980s), and as it was run by the fire brigade it was painted red.

When I was a kid, a poster magazine used a red police box as a graphic: cue massive playground arguments about what colour the TARDIS really was, ending in every kid in the street cramming into the one house with a colour TV to watch Planet of the Spiders (I think) and see for themselves.

I am reminded of the scene in one of the Simpson's Halloween Specials where their house keeps changing because of the "damage" that Homer is doing to the timeline by the stuff he is doing in the past, thanks to the Toaster/Time-Machine.

Maybe the Doctor would be totally oblivious, but the audience would see it on-screen. It would only last for a few moments. Working under the console on some system supposedly unrelated to the Chameleon Circuit as the ship floats in deep space, he does not see how the TARDIS flashes from one outer shell to the next to the next, perhaps the first outer shell would simply be a red police box.... eventually back to the blue police box.

But your idea of a more brief, more simple segment might create a sweeter little moment on screen!

actually in the Fringe alternate universe, Doctor Who would be an Inspector Spacetime parody

On the planet Cheron, the good police boxes are white on the right side and black on the left....
