Google Maps Has An Incredible Doctor Who Easter Egg

Hey, you know how it is. One minute you’re walking down a London street, minding your own business, when you accidentally step into a police call box and all of a sudden you’re inside the TARDIS and the Doctor has enlisted your help fighting aliens. I hate when that happens.

At least, that’s what is implied in this incredible Google Street View Easter egg. Click this link to the map of Earl’s Court Road, then click the double-white arrows directly in front of the call box. Immediately you’re transported inside the Doctor’s famous time machine, complete with a detailed 360 degree view of its interior and various controls.

Seriously, how cool is that? Our hat’s off to Google for such an awesome treat.

The Warlock/Other Doctor/War Doctor

He has some nice stuff. His costume is very cool.

Little bit disappointed in his sonic though. Just a little. Was excited at first because it had a red light on the end, and you know how much I like red things. (Apparently someone didn’t though so maybe I can’t say that any more? I dunno.) It also had a red bit on the butt-end, and that was new. However, upon closer inspection, it is literally the Fourth Doctor’s Sonic with the head pulled off and a wee red LED stuck in instead. So, okay, still pretty cool, but I was hoping for a new prop and it wasn’t. Or at least a new head. 

His TARDIS console room though! Oh! Technically not new either, but it bridges the new and the old wonderfully. I imagine that the Eighth Doctor’s console room was - regrettably - destroyed completely at some point so the Doctor switched back to a room with roundels. But the damage to the TARDIS continued so out crept the organic scaffolds to hold everything together. 

But my favourite detail from that TARDIS console room was that the console itself - whilst being obviously the same console - was much, much younger. Nine’s console and sonic both had parts that were made to look like some sort of ceramic/porcelain type material, but old and cracked. Here however we have the same edge to the console, only it’s clean, pure white. It’s new and young. So between the Last Day of the Time War - in which the Doctor regenerates into Nine - and Rose a lot of time has passed. Not long enough for the scaffold (coral-structures) to become no longer necessary, but long enough for the coral to really fill out and settle and grow old, but also for the porcelain material to age and develop imperfections. (Not helped by the use of percussive maintenance.) So judging by the coral and the ceramic and the general state of the walls and floor, it looks like decades pass between The Day of the Doctor and Rose. If not a hundred years. Which is supported in the dialogue, I think.

(“How old are you now?”

“1200-ish. Unless I forgot, or I’m lying.”

400 hundred years older than me!”

The Warlock thinks he’s 800-ish. 100-ish years younger than Six.)

(Also, Night of the Doctor gives us a possible loophole for the regeneration-limit, and since the War Doctor doesn’t think it is odd that the Tenth Doctor seems to think he’s only 900 years old then I’d suggest that perhaps the Doctor has been counting his age from the night that Eight died for Cass and chose to become the War Doctor.)


Being that the House deleted 9th/10th’s Tardis Console Room, do you think that it might’ve deleted 7th/8th’s Console room as well?

anonymous asked:

Music began to play in the TARDIS console room. With a sly grin on his face, the Doctor reached his hand to to Wryli. "Care to dance?" he asked. // from tennyrudeandnotginger

Wryli looked at the Doctor, he was a bit caught off guard by that. He smiled anyways and nodded “yeah, I’d love to. What’s gotten into you, love?” He asked with a small laugh.


The Thirteenth Doctor

This is my interpretation/semi-OC/concept/etc. of the thirteenth incarnation of the Doctor. Will add more later.

  • Face claim: Alex Pettyfer
  • Most of the time, the Doctor tends to be extremely happy, lively. eccentric, and childlike. Always willing come to the aid of those who need it.
  • However, he can be calm and serious when necessary.
  • When he’s angry, run.
  • Loves jelly bellies, bananas, and especially ice cream.
  • This incarnation is pretty well-built and athletic. Like his eleventh incarnation, if he’s inactive for more than thirty minutes, he will lose his mind. So, he hates being patient.
  • When alone with the TARDIS, he will speak to her. Sometimes, dirty things.
  • Hates cereal.
  • His attire is usually a gray suit with a pair of blue running shoes.
  • [ Mun will add more later. ]
