The First TARDIS, Recreated

For fans who grew up with Doctor Who, there is a primal charge to seeing a image like this: that hexagonal console set against the wall of circles, only in full color and positively glowing with now – a relic from the forward-looking past and a portal back into what, in 1963, felt very much […]
