Hi everyone. I've been watching the new series of Doctor Who and it's inspired me to have another crack at designing my own TARDIS. I've tried this before (see link below) and I kinda liked the results.

Anywho, I thought it was about time for a revamp, so here's my new version.

    And, so far, this is what the console room looks like. I'm still not happy with loads of bits on this one, but it's early days yet. I've figured out the basic layout but I need to do much more on the console itself. I wanted to go for a much more futuristic look, paying homage to the older series colour scheme of predominant white. I tried to use the trasparancy tool in Sketchup to create holographic dispays but I don't think these are working very well.

    *wonders where all the resident Whovians are*

    Anyway, nice work. Good to see an alternative look on the TARDIS thing. Though, I keep wondering if all TARDISes look the same inside. I mean, judging by the changes it underwent from the first Doctor to the tenth (haven't yet seen anything of Smiths new TARDIS), it changes all the time. I ask myself if these changes are the same for all Type 40 TARDISes (or for all TARDISes at all)...

    Cheers Aresius, I love how I can always rely on you for a good response. I don't know why this post has been so quiet! I thought that with the new series on air, the Whovians would be out in force. But so far this hasn't really generated any interest. :-( Oh well, KBO as Churchill used to say... As for Tardis interiors, they are all different and can assume any configuration their owner desires. The Master and The Rani have both had their own versions and in an animated adventure, Professor Chronitis disguised the interior of his tardis as his office.

    Then it's just your preferrence to use an interior design based on the Doctors TARDIS?

    Well the inside of a TARDIS can vary a lot but not always. (mostly depending on the budget for the year I guess.) There were several stories where the masters TARDIS looked the same as the Doctors, as well as others where they were different. However there are a few consistent elements which seem to be true for all of them from the TV show at least.
    They always have a center console of some sort with a time rotor in the middle of that. The control room has always been just inside the main door although not always with the main door being directly in the wall of the Control room.
    There has normally been a single door leading to the rest of the TARDIS, although there were time at the start where it seemed more like a continuation of the control room.
    Most have a had a circular wall pattern as their outer walls.
    Most have has a hexagonal center console large enough for six people to stand around. Or more importantly about 3 people to work at one station and sill keep their faces in camera.

    I like your new design. It has a true otherworldly aspect to the look of it.

    Having just read several pages of Doctor Who Magazine talking about this very topic I'm (a) slightly cross-eyed and (b) interested. I can see a "serious-minded" Time Lord travelling in something like that, and the console room is a nice mix of Davies and Moffat era rooms.

    Hi all. I've changed the interior ever so slightly again. It's now available to download here. http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=6432cf207a3c5056cf7328787c350b1

    Sorry for the delayed response! It's a two-part feature, with issue 420 looking at the role of the TARDIS in the series while issue 421 (the current one) discusses how the set and prop have changed over the years.
