It's Just a Police Call Box
Doctor Who's TARDIS is a moderately challenging Metal Earth model made from just 19 pieces on two sheets of blue metal. Assembled, the TARDIS measures 1.60"(W) x 1.60"(D) x 3.20"(H). TARDIS stands for Time And Relative Dimention In Space.
Each Metal Earth model is laser etched in meticulous detail on 11 cm (4.33") metal sheets. Pop out the pieces by hand (or use wire cutters to get especially crisp lines), bend the tabs using needle-nose pliers, and fit them together as shown in the simple pictorial instructions. For maximum dramatic effect, display your model on the LED Display Base or the Solar Spinner (sold separately, see below).
Please note that Metal Earth models have sharp edges and are not suitable for children under 14.
Are you curious...?
A properly maintained and piloted TARDIS can take its occupants anywhere in time and space. Unfortunately, Dr. Who's stolen TARDIS is not in tip-top condition, so the Doctor can't always land with pinpoint accuracy.
First-time visitors to the TARDIS always remark that it's much larger on the inside than it appears from the outside. Indeed, the number of rooms and corridors has never been specified, but is implied to be enormous; in fact, the Doctor once remarks that it's essentially infinite in size. Although it's often shown traveling through space, a TARDIS supposedly works by dematerializing, entering the timestream, and then rematerializing at its destination without traversing anything in between. Thanks to existing only partly in spacetime, a TARDIS is virtually indestructible.
The Doctor's TARDIS is an obsolete model that was in the shop for repairs when he "borrowed" it from the Timelords. It was already old by the time he acquired it, and at one point the Doctor remarks that he has 900 years of phone box travel behind him. The control room's appearance has changed several times over the many years that the show has been on television, often because the set had to be moved or rebuilt. Fictionally, it's been explained away as a redecoration, as the TARDIS repairing and reconfiguring itself, and even as changing "desktop themes." The exterior, on the other hand, has been remarkably consistent since it was first explained in 1963. Its "camouflage unit" (rechristened the "chameleon circuit" in 1975) is supposed to blend in with wherever the TARDIS materializes, but the Doctor's TARDIS has been stuck in the form of a London police box ever since a visit to that city in the 1960s.
