According to this story in Variety it looks like there will be a big budget film version of Doctor Who hitting the big screen soon. They signed up David Yates as director, no doubt based on his last four movies (the last 4 Harry Potter films to be specific), and Jane Tranter, currently head of L.A.-based BBC Worldwide Productions and formerly in charge of the Doctor Who reboot in 2005. Thanks to SF Crowsnest for the heads up on this one.

I have not seen a project that excites me like this one in a while. Someone who appreciates Doug Adams (or else why would he go with the name Douglas442) is building a Steampunk Tardis! At least the central control panel; for a full look at what is involved with creating a Tardis, check out the Weird SciFi Tardis page, and the Tardis Tech Data site. There was a Victorian-era Tardis control room in the original Tom Baker years of the series, which I will link here as soon as I can find an online reference, and an Steampunk Tardis Art version. Then there are things like a Steampunk Dalek and a whole lot more. Or maybe you are just looking for some Steampunk Wallpaper. I also found a video of a Steampunk Tardis Key you might enjoy, after seeing this real world version… I have a lot more to add here, but this should get you started…
