On the Eastern entrance to Earl’s Court Underground Station stands a TARDIS, we were told!
“A TARDIS? What is that?” I hear you ask. Or maybe you know all about this but we’re not Dr. Who fans so it was all new to us.
TARDIS which stands for Time and Relative Dimension in Space is a time machine that can take passengers to any point in time and space and to ANYWHERE in the Universe! The design was based on the once-familiar police call boxes.
In reality, it is but a Police Box – simply a box that contained a stool, table – installed to enable the public to contact local police at the touch of a button linked directly to a police switchboard. It was installed in 1997 – so it’s not that old!
We thought we would blog about this as Saturday was the beginning of the end of the current Dr. Who. And we watched an entire episode of Dr. Who for the first time. Now we’re all caught up with time travel! 🙂
May’s comment: A must for Dr. Who fans. We’re not exactly massive fans but when told that there’s a TARDIS in London, we went to find it. Sure enough there’s this strange large, dark blue box topped with an electric blue light located just outside the Earl’s Court station.
For those who do not know who or what is Doctor Who – “he is a British science-fiction television programme produced by the BBC since 1963. The programme depicts the adventures of the Doctor, a Time Lord—a spacefaring and time-travelling humanoid alien. He explores the universe in his TARDIS, a sentient time-travelling space ship.” – Wikipedia
