Google Maps' street view has always been a cool toy to play around with; undoubtedly many of you have used it to find your own house or other places you know. But now, it's been discovered, 'Doctor Who' fans can use the service to explore the TARDIS.
For those of you who don't watch the BBC's longest-running sci-fi series, the TARDIS is the Doctor's spacecraft, a ship that appears on the outside to just be an old blue police box but on the inside is a massive, high-tech time- (and space-) travel device.
Though the TARDIS can exist anywhere in space and time, Google Maps has it located on Earl's Court Rd in the Greater London Area (click here to see it). At first, it looks like a cool TARDIS prop that just happened to be there when the Google photographers drove by. But when you click a set of double arrows pointing toward the TARDIS, Google Maps takes you inside the TARDIS's console room, where you're free to take a look around. Sadly, you can't venture down the many hallways to explore the library or swimming pool (video game makers, take note!), and sadly the Doctor and Clara haven't been candidly photographed hanging out in the TARDIS, either.
But it's a cool enough easter egg for us, and a neat indication that somebody working at Google Maps is seriously, seriously into 'Doctor Who.'
You should also check out the review page of the location on Google, with people reviewing it like it's a hotel. Our favorite comes from Matt Carey: "Terrible stay. Constantly got lost on the way to my room. Even though it was just me the landlord insisted on me having bunk beds. Speaking of the landlord, he was very odd, wouldn't give me his name, just insisted on me calling him The Doctor (Doctor Who?!?)."
'Doctor Who' will next air on Saturday, Nov. 23, when its 50th anniversary special airs worldwide.
