^ Yes, I second that!
"Hello! I'm the Professor. Care for a Jelly Baby?"
Will we ever see a TARDIS that looks like it's made of concrete and NOT wood?
That's odd. My wife took s trip to Scotland a few years back and has a picture of herself standing next to a blue police box.
She tried to open the doors but couldn't get in. I told her next time to take my Tardis key with her and try it.
When it's no longer necessary to pay workmans comp to the prop guys that have to move that thing!
I know you're just being humorous, but seriously, that should not be that much of an issue. The prop is primarily fiberglass, anyway, so it should have taken little more effort nor add any weight to had made the surface look like cast cement. Keep in mind, however, the doors should remain looking like wood as that's what they were upon the Mark II boxes upon which the TARDIS is inspired.
Glasgow police boxes were all red up to a certain point, the 1960s I think. As well as the one in the old Museum of Transport which was mentioned above somewhere, there was one remaining red box on Wilson Street in the city. This was restored a few years ago (complete with phone and first aid kit!) and is now blue. I believe its also the only box of the four remaining on the streets in Glasgow that hasn't been turned into a kiosk selling coffee, ice cream or tartan(!).
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 wife said the police box was in Glasgow next to a really old cathedral.
The first thing I thought of when I read the thread title.
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.
Yea, I recall seeing the final brush strokes
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.
^^ah, sorry missed that! I enjoyed visiting Glasgow BTW!
it would look more like a phone box if it was red
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.
