Last night we got our first really good look at the new TARDIS interior. Our best look will come when it’s officially revealed during the Doctor Who Christmas special, “The Snowmen” in six days. It’s hard to imagine it’s so close, yet still so far away.

Now, I had assumed the TARDIS was getting a facelift in celebration of the series reaching its golden anniversary, and while that’s probably true, Steven Moffat shared his reasons for the redesign at a screening of the new episode,

I thought we’d been getting progressively whimsical with the interior of the TARDIS. And I started to think, ‘Well, why is that? It’s not a magical place. It’s actually a machine. And actually potentially, as you’ll see more spectacularly later, quite a scary place sometimes. We make a lot of use of that.

It’s true the TARDIS has looked very different throughout the series’ reboot than it did during its previous 26 year run. I’m definitely a fan of this new retro look, you?

Besides the TARDIS talk, Moffat also teased more about their plans for the big 5-0 celebration. And in true Moffat style, he reveals absolutely nothing,

[Plans] are immense, they are considerable. They will be full of tremendous surprises. But they wouldn’t be surprises if I accidentally said them now, would they? No, we’re not telling you. But I promise you, we’re going to take over television. Trust me.

I do trust in Moffat, and I only get more excited thinking about plans which would “take over television.” The series officially returns in April, should we expect April to be Doctor Who month? And what about the actual anniversary date in November? Surely they’ll have something planned for then.
