“I just thought, since you saved my life and I’ve got a brand new sonic screwdriver that needs road-testing, you might fancy a trip.”
Welcome to the T.A.R.D.I.S.’s Homebase!
What is the T.A.R.D.I.S.? Well, any fan of the BBC’s long-running series Doctor Who knows, it stands for Time And Relative Dimension In Space. Right? Well… Yes, in the usual context. However, this T.A.R.D.I.S., while related to the aforementioned series (in more ways that one!) , is not a time-travelling police box. What does T.A.R.D.I.S. stand for, then?
Once, this screwdriver was nothing but an average toy. A model, specifically, of the Tenth Doctor‘s sonic screwdriver. But then a worried person (me) snuck it into a loved one’s luggage as he left on a very emotional personal trip. And so the Screwdriver’s true purpose was revealed. It was meant as a sign of caring and comfort, and it performed that job. However, upon returning, the Screwdriver’s wanderlust had been awakened.
Perhaps it should’ve been expected of something modeled after an iconic belonging of the universe-travelling alien who’s picture is most likely in the dictionary with the word “curiosity,” but once the purpose was awakened, there’s been no stopping it. This page is dedicated to the places and people with whom the Screwdriver shares it’s adventures, to the T.A.R.D.I.S. and it’s companions, as it were. Unfortunately for the first few trips, the Screwdriver’s true nature was unknown, and no proper photos were taken during those trips, but there will be photographic evidence in the future for all trips.
