Production designer Arwel Jones.
The Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) at the controls of her TARDIS inKerblam! (2018).

”Jodie’s such a physical actor, so I wanted to give her lots of things to do.”

“Flick those sw itches, bring that handle forw ard, turn on the Cham eleon sw itch and pull that final lever. Then hold on. It’s a bit of a rough ride.”

These are the instructions of production designer Arw el Jones, who has invited Doctor Who Magazine to the studio floor at RoathLock.

“Jodie [W hittaker] was genuinely really blown away when she first saw her TARDIS, which was nice because it would have been really aw kw ard otherw ise”, says Arw el, laughing. “I show ed her round and introduced everything but then left it to her to work out her ow n w ay of flying it. I think every Doctor has a different way of flying the TARDIS. Some of them just flick whatever they want and others have a sequence that they like to go through, all their specific points – that’s how Jodie pilots it. But I didn’t tell her how to pilot it because it’s com pletely, 100 per cent hers.”

H appily for Jodie, Arw el designed the TARDIS to be as “tangible” as possible. “Jodie’s such a physical actor, so I wanted to give her lots of things to do. There’s nothing worse – and designers do it withspaceships all the time – than som eone walking up to a control panel and sim ply going ‘tap tap tap’ on a keyboard. So I very much wanted to have a tactile elem ent to this TARDIS, like there was withDavid Tennant’s and Chris Eccleston’s console. when people went on that set they’d only half listen to you while they were playing withthings.”
