A few days ago, the BBC announced that thew Doctor's ride had been given a makeover by Doctor Who production designer Michael Pickwoad. It and the show's new opening credit sequence & theme song will debut on its forthcoming Christmas special, "The Snowmen."
A small portion of the new TARDIS set was photographed and attached to the BBC’s announcement; not much could be gleaned from it, though. Today, the network sent out another image that revealed much more. Check the photo that appears at the top of this post to see the Doctor himself, Matt Smith, standing in front of the TARDIS console. Quite striking, isn’t it? It has a minimalist vibe that hearkens back to the Tom Baker era, which I can totally get behind. Let us know what you think in the comments.
“The Snowmen” is set to air on December 25 in the United States and United Kingdom. Australia will get it on Boxing Day, December 26. Check local listings for times.
