With an interior famously larger than its exterior, capsule uses a “chameleon circuit” to blend in with its surroundings.But when the device in the Doctor’s stolen ship breaks, the TARDIS remains stuck in the recognizable shape of a 1960s-style London police box—even more conspicuous in the 2005 reboot.e-HardwareDoctor Who‘s iconic blue doors recently landed on UK-based supplier e-Hardware’s list of “the most fantastic fictional doors,” alongside other popular entryways: Arthur Conan Doyle’s 221b Baker Street, Bag End on Bagshot Row in Hobbiton, the flowery door leading to Boo’s room, and Hodor’s unfortunately, not-White-Walker-proof door.Boasting a library, swimming pool, enormous chamber jammed with clothes, and a console room, the TARDIS—so named by the First Doctor’s granddaughter, Susan—first appeared in 1963’s “An Unearthly Child,” and has been a permanent fixture ever since.But as the awe-inspiring inside changes season by season, so has the police box’s outer plasmic shell; there have been seven different iterations of the exterior between its debut and 2010.BBC“Doctor Who‘s choice of door handles is hugely important,” e-Hardware’s Nigel Head-Jenner mused in a blog post. “When you’re blasting through time and space, you don’t want your door knobs to be falling off, trapping you inside.
