The New TARDIS | Doctor Who: Series 11


Hello, you I think every Doctor needs their TARDIS that connects with them and their facets and also having our amazing new designer Arwel Jones, absolutely he had a great plan for a TARDIS right from our very first conversations This is the new, latest incarnation of the TARDIS Shall we just go straight to the console? That’s what everyone wants to do We had a little play around as usual, you know changing things but keeping to the essence of the six sides Deliberately tried to keep it as analogue and kind of hands on as possible for Jodie because she’s quite a physical actor There’s no keyboard as such here it’s switches, dials, twist-knobs, all manner of things that you actually have to physically get in there and get involved with, you know You’ve got certain things that can happen that actually gives it life immediately you know, So that it’s not a prop man off set trying to flick switches or anything, it actually happens directly off the, off the console We wanted it to feel quite organic and quite tactile again so it’s not a very digital TARDIS, it’s much more of a, a functional, practical kind of TARDIS So the whole idea of the energy source for the TARDIS and everything is, is this central crystal and the focussing of power in this central crystal We came up with this pattern that was quite easy to repeat, and looked intricate and we wove in and out of each other but also wanted to break it up in a fractal way We came across this image online of crown shyness within trees, so when you look up into the canopy of certain tree types, the branches and leaves from different trees will never touch each other, they just leave a slight gap and it gives you this fractal pattern in the canopy I thought that was quite cool, so that’s why all these sections are kind of, don’t touch each other they all break apart and there’s gaps The custard cream dispenser is totally Arwel’s gift to Jodie, because he said to her when he was designing, when he was doing the concept of the TARDIS he just said ‘I can’t tell you why but tell me your favourite biscuit’ Arwel took her on to show her her TARDIS for the first time and to walk her around the console and to just let her drink in that moment The little pièce de résistance was that at the end of taking her around the console he said ‘Put your foot on that’, ‘What?’ He said, ‘put your foot on that’ It’s like a pedal And out popped a little custard cream And the look of delight on her face It’s so Doctor Who-y and so Arwel, and so that’s why I think he’s just the perfect guy to be the Production
Designer on this show I really like it

    I really like the outside of the new TARDIS but the inside is utter rubbish. Kind of looks a little like they are ripping off the fortress of solitude

    I was just disappointed by the fact that not one of the Doctor's companions said 'It's bigger on the inside'.

    Why does the centre of the new tardis look like a big penise, the new series I am sad to say is far too PC touching on racists issues with a totalitarian force os feminism…. so sad… I don’t blame the actors in anyway but unless you want to destroy this show please bring some Matt smith into it

    I love it. I have a TARDIS in Second Life, and I can't wait for Novatech to bring this new TARDIS to being available to buy. (Please don't give them any grief about it, BBC. It's a great way for us to join in the DW fun in SL.)

    I still have a problem with the lighting. We haven’t had decent lighting in the TARDIS since Matt’s first TARDIS.

  18. Thomas Vann
    Thomas Vann October 23, 2018

    This scene from twice upon a time sums up the new tardis perfectly

    What's wrong with the lights?
    It's supposed to be like this.
    Why?
    It, it's atmospheric. Atmospheric? This is the flight deck of the most powerful space-time machine in the known universe, not a restaurant for the French. Good Lord, what is that?

  19. Thomas Vann
    Thomas Vann October 23, 2018

    Since the tardis is a living being any one who does not like the new interior can say HEY TARDIS U MESSED UP

    I have to be honest I love the mismatch of things in the TARDIS, it seems very 13 to me. Like the way she made her sonic. It’s all very random but it’s brilliant.

    Just going to add more to this.

    The orangey lights make the TARDIS feel very warm and I really like that contrast against the blue.

    My favourite thing is how every doctor has their own representation but they always incorporate pieces of the others. I know a lot of people don’t like this TARDIS, and it really is a personal thing, which is why the TARDIS ‘adapts’ I guess, for each doctor. I love the little quirks and I love the way we went from a basic original spaceship with timelord technology for the first doctor and overtime the TARDIS has become more personalised. I bet any timelords that saw it now would be disgusted, but it’s meant for the doctor. It’s meant to match their quirks. I honestly love that aspect of doctor who.

    I’m looking forward to seeing where the show goes and I hope it’s amazing.

    I prefer the original tardis that we all grew up with atleast it didn't look like polystireen and it didn't look cheap nasty and tacky

  25. Kryojenix
    Kryojenix October 25, 2018

    After continuous improvement since 2005, this seems to be a backwards step.
    It's all dark and murky.
    When will we have a bright futuristic TARDIS interior again.
    Oh well, it'll do…

  26. Steve Ross
    Steve Ross October 25, 2018

    The New TARDIS is a truly terrible design. It not only looks stupid it feels cheap. The whole series so far has been a huge disappointment with very poor episodes complete with Moffat-esque lazy nonsense and disregard for the existing lore. Not really surprised to hear that the 2019 season might be cancelled. Hiring Chibnal as show-runner was a terrible mistake.

  27. EnderDude124
    EnderDude124 October 26, 2018

    You've redecorated!
    … I don't like it.

    Jokes aside, I don't hate it, it's just kind of meh. I like the sort of natural look that the TARDIS has been given, given that it's alive. However, the crystal in the middle just seems… odd? I'm used to the time rotor or something similar.
    I bet it'll grow on me though.
    Eh? Eh?
    Because crystals grow?
    … And probably TARDISes?

    not a big fan of the new design but does it have the wibbly lever because it is vital for the tardis.

  30. Michael Sorrentino
    Michael Sorrentino October 26, 2018

    Crystal design is too reminiscent of Kryptonian technology from Superman, in particular, the Fortress of Solitude. Much prefer the 11th and 12th doctor's TARDIS

    Why is such a bright and bubbly Doctor's TARDIS so damn dark? I've been watching since Four, and over the years there have been hits and misses – but I have to say, I think Thirteen's is the ugliest so far! Disappointed…

    When this first came on the screen, I thought the lights weren’t on yet. A few episodes in and it’s still a basement without a lamp.

    DigitalVanquish November 6, 2018

    I quite like the pattern on the walls but the rest of the console room looks ugly. I also don't really like the way the interior integrates with the exterior box.

  45. mrquizical
    mrquizical November 6, 2018

    Why did Dr. Who. become so blatantly alt Left. not even trying to hide their attempt to smear the right? The writers must have got their marching orders from their superiors.  I like Dr. Who series, why the attempt to brainwash their viewer's. I feel totally disgusted by this. I'm not the only one too see this.  Am I wrong?

  46. royalewithcheese
    royalewithcheese November 7, 2018

    Oh you've redecorated….I actually quite like it 😉

    Thought it looked a bit dark at first but i love how the phone box is actually embedded into the room. I want that spinning TARDIS and custard cream dispenser. Also nice arches very reminiscent of McGann's.

    Companions reaction:

    "oh… it's… sorta bigger on the inside?"

    It's dark, cramped and dreary. The TARDIS is supposed to be much, much, much bigger on the inside. This does not look like a place with a library or pool or thousands of rooms. It looks like an abandoned scifi set from the 80's – with the power off.

    Yuck.

  50. Novaximus
    Novaximus November 9, 2018

    I think the tardis could do with a 2nd main hang out room to film scenes in. Maybe like some sort of cantina or a reflecting pavilion area.

  51. SharazJeck

    Just go back to the 5th-7th doctors tardis please- in fact any from the classic era is better than this 👌

  52. Simon A Lane
    Simon A Lane November 11, 2018

    Ok, no one has brought up a Tardis interior anomoly. So we see the Police Box 3 sides with the back as the entrance making the Tardis interior dimensionally exterior to it's shell. It has always been seen as how is it bigger on the inside. When I see the Police Box I envisage the interior as behind and invisible and not inside. In the vortex I see the huge interior invisibly spinning clumped on to the Police Box.

  53. Rachel Levin

  54. Timmity3
    Timmity3 November 14, 2018

    …the power source… The crystal.

    That's just factually incorrect.. that's just the central column. I'm still annoyed it no longer touches the ceiling to imply it actually fuels the light stop it.

  55. VandalAudi
    VandalAudi November 17, 2018

    Why keeping the tardis dark tho? Matt’s tardis is a lot brighter,…. maybe like what the classic doctors had.

  57. Director Brian
    Director Brian November 17, 2018

    Honestly, this design reminds me a lot of 9-10's TARDIS, and that's fine by me. It looks really nostalgic and ancient, a design I don't think has been explored before.

    Also, we can all admit the glass TARDIS on the console is adorable, right?

  58. Blu3 Phantom
    Blu3 Phantom November 19, 2018

    Can't say I'm a fan of this design, the smaller interior and actual console column is also smaller than what new who has given us so far, they're definitely trying to squeeze some classical who into this design however, personally capaldi's (and matt's final) interior feels a lot more advanced then this one. And trust me I'm not a fan of that design either my favourite design is matt's first interior design.

    The tardis is meant to have tunnels to the eye of harmony or the library / swimming pool…

    ah you redecorated… I don't like it

  62. Jibroni UK
    Jibroni UK November 26, 2018

    I don’t like this TARDIS design. It does not look like a Time Machine designed by an advance race of Time Lords. The digital look works for a reason. The interior is way too dark. The instrument panels look extremely childish and basic. Clearly the 11th series do not plan on spending any significant time in the TARDIS. I am NOT impressed. I used to look forward to seeing the new TARDIS designs with each new doctor. This is actually and sincerely the worst. Knowing that BBC was forcing a female doctor on the fandom I expected that BBC would give Jodie great stories and adventures and TARDIS. Very disappointing TARDIS.

  63. Kalevon
    Kalevon November 28, 2018

    I like the aspect of the Tardis having a rougher and practical feel to it as opposed to the elegance and classyness of Capaldi's Tardis.

  64. KRISIS1451
    KRISIS1451 December 2, 2018

    The thing is, how does this interior of the Tardis match the personality of the 13th doctor? She into Chakra crystals and cramped space?

    I love love loooove the crystals!!! And the dispenser, although extra large Madelines coming out would be AWESOME if i was a companion. And pls trll the writer doctor who-y is physically painful to hear, so a different discriptor is needed. Awesome job to all artists who have comtributed. It does feel a little lonely tho. The tardis interior….compared to the previous ones…don't know why…

  75. Daniel Arkangel
    Daniel Arkangel December 21, 2018

    11:11 is caused by TARDIS and is done with permission through the Holy Spirits HUB to indicate something relevant is about to happen in the near future regarding God. So if you look at the clock at 11:11 it is because of TARDIS, do not worship TARDIS because of this it is just his way of letting the world know that something very big is about to happen. I am the Arkangel Daniel and I am from Heaven.

  76. cayddn
    cayddn December 23, 2018

    I like it, but it feels jarring compared to 11/12's. They were so roomy, especially latter 11 and the rest of 12, so all the lack of space (which makes it look like there aren't any other rooms) makes it feel cramped. Still like the crystals, although the removal of the monitor isn't my favorite choice.

    An arrogant reworking of the concept of the TARDIS, which i have no doubt will have Billy Hartnell regenerating from the grave to give the designer (if designer is the right word) a piece of his mind. It looks like a cheap toy fairy castle bought from poundland.

    It's ok though I'd rethink the 'crystal' in the middle as looks too plastic. I'd prefer something more like Ecclestone/Tennant's time rotor with the interweaving elements when the TARDIS is in flight.

  88. Wally Graham

    The console in my opinion doesn't feel big enough. Unlike 9s, 10s, 11s, 12s, consoles are the main centrepiece. And the tardis is too dark. I love all the doctors bright living space with seats and the various switches and levers but this doesn't seem as memorable.
