Like many things in post war Britain, the Tardis time and space machine was a bit crap. As Doctor Who's time machine, it was disguised as a Police Box, and made the sound of a Soviet car's starter motor on a cold day. A Police Box, seems to have been a kind of sentry box for cops, a place for Bobbies to hang out and make tea, providing there were less than two of them.The Tardis is also a New York Realtor's dream since it is the size of a large dog kennel, or medium sized Manhattan apartment, on the outside, and NASA's Vertical Assembly building on the inside. Since there are approximately 'none at all' police boxes on the streets of Britain, the Tardis is the world's worst disguise for a time machine, unless you happen to be visiting Britain, Earth, The Solar System, The Milky Way, The Universe, between 1900 and 1950, local time.
