We all recognise the name of the Doctor’s time machine, and the ubiquitous nature of its time-travel technology, but in the early days of the series things weren’t quite as clear…
The Doctor (William Hartnell) unlocks the door of his ship, TARDIS, in Marco Polo (1964).
Vicki (Maureen O’Brien) and Steven (Peter Purves) investigate a stone sarcophagus in A Battle of Wits, episode three of The Time Meddler (1965)…

About Doctor Who Magazine

The Doctor has always challenged the linear conception of time. Since his television voyage began in 1963, the TARDIS has travelled backwards, forwards and even sideways through the mysterious Vortex. This lavish publication traces the development of these time-bending narratives, describing the rules that were laid down – and subsequently revised – by the series’ writers and producers. We unravel this timey-wimey journey with exclusive interviews, rare images and revealing features that explore the most intriguing corners of the Doctor Who universe.
