Anonymous asked you:
Could you make a gif set of all the different variations of the TARDIS? I know it may take up more than the space Tumblr gives you but I would love to be able to see all the TARDISes from 1 all the way to 12. Thank you!!
There have been five basic TARDIS shell designs on television in the past fifty years.
(GIFs 1, 2 and 3) The original Hartnell TARDIS was designed by Peter Brachacki and used for the first fourteen years, undergoing various modifications and repairs throughout the Hartnell, Troughton, Pertwee and early Baker eras.
(GIFs 4 and 5) For Tom Baker’s seasons 14, 15, 16 and 17 (The Masque of Mandragora until The Horns of Nimon) a new TARDIS exterior was designed by Barry Newbery to replace the seriously fatigued original. Towards the end of it’s life it lost it’s white roof lamp and a repair was carried out using a standard modern (for the 1970s) rotating blue police beacon.
(GIFs 6 and 7) For Tom Baker’s last season, right through to the end of the run of the classic series (Sylvester McCoy’s Survival) an exterior designed by Tom Yardley-Jones was used. Two identical fiberglass props were made - all previous props were fabricated predominantly out of wood.
(GIF 8) The Paul McGann movie TARDIS was the work of designer Richard Hudolin, and was rather lovely.
(GIFs 9 and 10) Most recently, Colin Richmond created the new TARDIS exterior for the 2005 relaunch. The design underwent some moderate tweaks for the Matt Smith era.

"Sean Pertwee: My Dad Jon was ‘very fond’ of Peter Capaldi"
From promo photos to their costumes, eagle-eyed fans have long been noticing certain similarities between new Doctor Peter Capaldi and the third incarnation of the Time Lord, Jon Pertwee. Well now his son, actor Sean Pertwee, has revealed that the two were friends.
Pertwee, who plays villain Sarazin in BBC1’s The Musketeers alongside Capaldi as Cardinal Richelieu, has been talking about his love of the actor and how close he is to his family.
"My father was very fond of Peter and Peter is an extremely lovely gentleman," he told PA. "He was very kind to my family when my father passed away, he was big fan of my dad’s actually. So personally the Pertwee household were absolutely delighted when he got the role of The Doctor."
He also gave his thoughts on how the 55 year-old Capaldi will fare after the fresh-faced tenure of Matt Smith.
"I think he’s going to bring some real gravitas and weight, which only comes with age. Taking nothing away from Matt (Smith), who I thought was great, I just think he’s going to stupendous. He’s going to have a completely different look.
"He’s such a phenomenal actor anyway I think he’ll be absolutely brilliant. I’m delighted he’s doing it." (x)
