Favourite TARDIS exterior

The thread about the Tardis interiors made me think about the outside of the TARDIS.

Although it’s less drastic, this often gets a refresh too at the start of a new era.

I think my fav is the the one introduced in 13s era.

I like the banged up War Doctor version. The old girl has been through some s**t.

Also enjoy the First Doctors skinny tardis

I really like the ones with the ambulance sticker. It feels very Doctor-y to me.

I think I agree 13s (and now 14s and 15s I guess) is the best its been for a while. I also have a soft spot for the 9/10 exterior

I have less strong opinions on TARDIS exteriors than interiors but I think I’d agree that the one introduced with 13 is my favorite! So glad they decided to keep it for RTD2, I think the black sign with white text just looks really nice.

Hilarious to me that this exact image is what they used in the 13th doctor reveal video. I get that it probably wasn’t worth making an actual prop for a brief reveal video but it’s just really funny that they used one of the first images that pop up when you google “TARDIS”.

Yes! 13s tardis exterior is great, hers and nine are probably my favorites at the moment

I kind of find the miniature TARDIS prop from the early days of Doctor Who rather endearing :slightly_smiling_face:

I like when its flying through space and you tell its this model on a black surface with a star effect laid over it.

A pupil in my class last year got me this as a present - I was so chuffed with it as I’d been eyeing it up since it was released.

I do love the pink one from The Happiness Patrol.

What about when the TARDIS is painted pink in The Happiness Patrol


Obviously wouldn’t want her to stay that way after that that story ended but I love it within that story, possibly just because I love The Happiness Patrol, but still.

Or the one with the flowers and Clara painted on in Hell Bent


It’s certainly very pretty

I love McGann’s TARDIS exterior!

SNAP - I was literally about to post a picture of this alongside my pink TARDIS love!

I was thinking the pink TARDIS from Happiness Patrol, but looks like several people are already thinking the same way…

I agree that Thirteen’s TARDIS is gorgeous, but I prefer the black text on a white background. Feels less “dark mode everything” to me - and I say this as someone who puts everything on dark mode. I will always have a soft spot for Nine’s, but Eleven’s is probably my favourite. I can say for certain that I don’t like the black and white windows on Twelve’s. The one from the end of Hell Bent is absolutely gorgeous, though, and I hope to one day have the time and energy to paint it on my wardrobe.

Maybe not my favorite, but this one’s worthy of note…

This one isn’t the Doctor’s TARDIS, but it’s a classic.
