For those who don't know, Bessie was a yellow car that the third Doctor drove around in when he was exiled to earth.
I'm pretty sure Tom Baker's Doctor drove Bessie at least once not long after the regeneration.

A Bessie used to be in the wonderful Doctor Who Museum in Blackpool, but unfortunately the BBC pulled the plug on it...
Was Bessie part of "The Doctor Who Experience"?

Does anyone know where Bessie is right now?
Bessie got severely damaged and abandoned in the Five Doctors but apparently it appeared in Battlefield so I have no idea.

Found it on YouTube.

At about five and a half minutes in, there she (or a copy) is.

Re: Do you think we'll ever see Bessie again?

Well what would be interesting is if - while he can't necessarily go back in his own timeline - he still was able to hit the past here and there - so it's feasible that he could "borrow" Bessie when he wasn't using it in his past incarnation.

That, to me, would be an interesting way to celebrate the 50th - have 11 basically go back through his previous 10 incarnations, maybe like there's something that was always "out of his sight" while he was doing something else and almost predestination. So maybe he needs to do something in Bessie, and Smith could always wear 3rd or 4th Doctor's wardrobe for it briefly. And go all the way back to the 1st.

Re: Do you think we'll ever see Bessie again?

Bessie was last seen in Battlefield. The Brigadier said he had kept it in storage for the Doctor.
At the end of the episode it is driven off by the female cast members to go shopping, leaving The Doctor & the Brigadier alone at the Brigadier's house.
I always figured the Brig either kept it for himself or put it back in storage

Bessie info here for what it's worth, being no car expert myself. http://freespace.virgin.net/dr.dean/

Re: Do you think we'll ever see Bessie again?

As was depicted in "Parting of the Ways" with Rose and a Dalek guarding her, simply materialize and dematerialize the TARDIS around Bessie. But since the last time we saw Bessie (relative to the Doctor's time-line) was in BattleField, the Brig probably had it stored for the Doctor whenever he should return.

Sincerely,

Bill

^ If that's the case, it's a shame Kate didn't mention Bessie in The Power Of Three.

Re: Do you think we'll ever see Bessie again?

Love the idea of the Doc visiting '70s-'80s UNIT. He'd have to make sure to tell them "if the other bloke you know comes back around, don't tell him I was here". As for cars, they really need to bring back the Whomobile, cell phone and all. WHAT a contraption.

Re: Do you think we'll ever see Bessie again?

Well, now that the Sarah Jane Chronicles are over, we could use a kid-friendly Doctor Who Spin off. Imagine:

The Bessie Files

Bessie is given an AI program of some kind and has kids run around solving mysteries with her. But get this: All of the mysteries involve aleins! And maybe Bessie can go through time or something. Also, Bessie gets a regeneration sequence in the first episode after being shot down by aleins of some sort.
