Doctor Who: 11 Iconic Things From Matt Smith's Era
11. The Orange Tardis Interior
(Im holding off on the blue TARDIS interior, because I think it would look quite nice with Twelve, dont you?) Lets go back in time, back to 2009, where we all had just tragically said goodbye to David Tennant and left with a new Doctor anda new TARDIS interior. Now, for the past four seasons and two Doctors, we had kept the same (or a very close variation) of the TARDIS, but this was completely new. New Doctor, new mouth, new rules, new TARDIS. To me, this was the pinnacle of Steven Moffat saying Look whos running the show now, baby!, although there was less creepy music and less creepy laughter than I just imagined in my head. This TARDIS showed much more than a stunning display of orange. This TARDIS represented who Eleven was going to be. Essentially, it was the first clue of what we were in for, the first hint being that as it was going to be brand new the Doctor was going to be someone we hadnt had in New Who. It was also more flamboyant than the previous console, giving us a hint that this Doctor was going to be more out there, less serious. Also, as shown by a fellow WhatCulture writer, it is the only console in New Who so far that allowed us to see different ways of exiting the console room. Thats incredibly important, as it reminds us how big the TARDIS really is as watchers of New Who we may sometimes forget that.
