Ooh...!  I particularly love this torrential rain shot, very "film noir"!

I can't recall, has the series ("classic" or "revival") ever depicted the TARDIS in the rain?

Sincerely,

Bill

Journey's End did... Maybe Curse of Peladon?

I didn't actually take this one; a friend sent it shortly after I got my box (there were weeks of torrential rain before I could put her up in the garden).

Coincidentally, that same friend is an ex-police officer who used the Glasgow boxes while on the beat. He still has a key somewhere (I know what you're thinking and I have hinted).

In the Whoniverse - without a popular TV show to firmly plant blue boxes in the hearts of millions - would the Glasgow boxes have been a) Preserved, and b) so often re-painted blue?

It's great being able see them... I've still got three to get my picture taken with. It's lovely for me that they've always been there. I'm so glad Mr Westwater came to the rescue.

I think in the DWM article he stated he wasn't really a Who fan; he was motivated to save a piece of history... So perhaps he would still have saved the Glasgow boxes in your scenario...

Thank you.

Found a shop on eBay a few years ago that made very accurate scarves, but you could ask for custom lengths. Got this and a Season 18 to the length of my duffle coat so I can wear them in public without being too self conscious. They also look rather nice with my more formal overcoat.

Thank you so much... However, I didn't build her. She's a rehomed and (so far) weatherproofed This Planet Earth box.

How acurate do you think it is ?

I see the lamp top round thing looks full and solid, is it a resine casting ?

Completely off-topic, but you should let your hair grow out and be the Sir Richard Branson incarnation of The Doctor.

Well, he is a fearless explorer who loves to venture into virgin territory... As to whether growing my hair is a good idea, you can judge for yourself from this before and after pic of my post lockdown haircut.pixlr_20201212075432578.jpg
Sir Richard and I do share a love of Mike Oldfield. And there's a chap in Wales who releases excellent music in the style of Oldfield. And he did a rather nice version of the Doctor Who theme. If I'm right, this video was shot at the same lighthouse as Fugitive of the Judoon, but a year or two earlier. According to an article I saw online, the lighthouse really does have a TARDIS on the balcony. So Fugitive must surely be a completely unique occurrence, when the production team had to remove a police box from a location in order to film.

Other than a slighly shorter base, I believe it's pretty accurate to Series 7. For waterproofing reasons I made some modifications around the door. And I replaced the St John's Ambulance sticker with a Capaldi style aluminium plate (or rather, an aluminium plate in the style of the Capaldi badge, courtesy of the good folk of TARDIS Builders).

The lamp is metal and glass.
