Re: Will we ever see a red Tardis?

Does anyone know how the Doctor got the Tardis back to being blue after The Happiness Patrol?

I'd only recently learned of the storyline when I found this thread.

My recollection is that he simply paints it blue again at the end of the story.

Or it may have simply shrugged it off after awhile. The chameleon circuit still works, but it only changes into blue police boxes regardless of where the TARDIS goes:

No, he gets the former members of the Happiness Patrol to paint it blue for him (well, they painted it pink in the first place, so...). Ace finishes the work just before they leave.

My wife said the police box was in Glasgow next to a really old cathedral.
I've seen that one. IIRC, it's blue.

Yeah, my earlier post got a bit rambly, all the remaining boxes in Glasgow are blue.

The one near the cathedral now sells (or did sell) tartan.

Re: Will we ever see a red Tardis?

Red? Are you insane?

Every time the Tardis materializes in a new location, within the first nanosecond of landing, it analyzes its surroundings, calculates a 12-dimensional data map of everything within a 1000-mile radius, and determines which outer shell would blend in best with the environment.
And then it disguises itself as a police telephone box from 1963.
It’s probably a bit of a fault, actually. I’ve been meaning to check.

Re: Will we ever see a red Tardis?

Speaking of Scottish police boxes, Edinburgh has still got two or three police boxes still standing on the streets, but none of them are of the 'TARDIS' design. They're still the right color though. There's one standing outside a Starbucks in the Royal Mile!

There are a lot more than two or three, and they come a variety of colours and uses.

By the way, here is the current modern incarnation of a police box. I walk past it every morning and don't think I've seen it work yet.
Coming soon, when JJ Abrams takes over Doctor Who as well...

My first thought seeing this was "designed by a dalek" for some reason...;-)
