Re: 50th Is "The Day Of The Doctor" (And Is 75 Minutes)

I wonder if we'll finally get to see a Battle Tardis or a million of them in the case of the final battle between the Time Lords and the 10 million Dalek ships.

One wonder what that TARDIS would look like. What is the natural state of a TARDIS? Of course, the smartest thing would be a TARDIS that looks like a Dalek saucer.

Didn't we see some in "The Name of the Doctor"?

Here's an image of a number of "TT capsules," aka TARDISes, in their default configuration:

In The Name Of The Doctor, they made out like a default TARDIS was cylindrical.

Isn't that a picture of SIDRATs ?

Sort of, but you see the same capsules on the Time Lord homeworld at the end of The War Games (and that's where Christopher's image is from).

Well clearly the cylinders are the shape of the maintenance pods that help contain dimensional expansion and radiation if/as they degrade while not in use when awaiting repair or following their retirement and the rectangular cuboid shape is the actual default shape.

The same image is on this page, about SIDRATs and their drawer-like doors.

I figure if the Timelords were going to use time capsules in the war, they'd use SIDRATs assuming they're easier to build.

I'd imagine that different types had different shapes; the box-cupboard looking ones (and the SIDRAT variants) might be newer types than the then ancient Tyep-40.

Right, the older Tardis versions are probably cylindrical and and maybe that's why you see a bunch in the repair shop. The newer models have the 'draw door' and that is what the War Chief based the Sidrats on.

Wales Online has up a gallery of promo pictures.

I'm not convinced that Billie Piper is playing Rose. I think she may be an avatar of the Time Vortex, the living personification of Bad Wolf.

^ I'm always of the opinion that if you're going to bring someone back, bring them back as they were. Otherwise, fans are dissappointed. I'm not the biggest Rose fan (nothing wrong with her) but because Piper is back, best that she just plays Rose.
