Experience Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary

Photo detail

The time machine in “Doctor Who,” called the TARDIS, took the form of a British police telephone box, a common sight in 1963 but very rare nowadays. Police boxes gave officers a way to communicate with headquarters before radios came into common use. This police box is a prop on display at The Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff, Wales.
