The Doctor Never Signals Ahead
We’re always in trouble! Isn’t this extraordinary – it follows us everywhere!The Doctor
For those Doctor Who fans like myself, this is The Famous TARDIS Painted on a Signal Ahead Sign. I thought this was funny because, as you know, the Doctor never calls ahead before he shows up.
A TARDIS is a product of the advanced technology of the Time Lords, an extraterrestrial civilisation to which the programme’s central character, the Doctor, belongs. A properly maintained and piloted TARDIS can transport its occupants to any point in time and space. The interior of a TARDIS is much larger than its exterior. It can blend in with its surroundings using the ship’s “chameleon circuit”. TARDISes also possess a degree of sapience and provide their users with additional tools and abilities including a universal translation system based on telepathy.
