Street View goes into the TARDIS

14 August 2013

tardis Outside Earl's Court tube station is one of the old fashioned police boxes, which of course, the TARDIS is modeled on.

If you go find it on Google Street View, you can follow the arrows toward it and, in a boon for geeky Whovians, you can now go inside it to see inside the Doctor's lair-machine.

Of course, users have been leaving comments on it, varying from passably amusing to irritating. One said: "The landlord was a strange man, he would talk to himself and shout things at the most random times. Still, his stories were very entertaining, a bit fanciful but fun to listen to!"

Someone else wrote: "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."

This isn't the first Google Easter Egg. If you type "do a barrel roll" into the search engine, everything spins around the screen, while tapping in 'Atari Breakout' into Google Images turned the search engine into a game with your results. There's also a place on the southern point of Half Moon Island, Antarctica and if you drag the Street View man onto the blue roads, he turns into a penguin.

Anyway, if you're a fan of Doctor Who, go check out the latest Easter Egg as Google have a habit of killing these off when they get bored.
