The TARDIS is Bigger on the Inside, So is Your iPhone!

Well fellow nerds, thanks to the addition of folders the iPhone is now even BIGGER on the inside. So about a month ago, I was in search of a new background, and thought, “Hmm, What would a Timelord do with an iPhone?” and the answer is probably “Nothing, I have a sonic screwdriver.”

Well to achieve this awesomeness, all I did was Google” TARDIS exterior” and “TARDIS interior” save the images I wanted, Set the Lock and Home screen and voila… I was awash with nerdy excitement when I first slid to unlock and entered the much larger interior of my TARDIS. I still get a kick out of it.

I invite all of my fellow nerds to join me in making your iPhones truly bigger on the inside.

PS I know that the exterior is the 10th Doctor and the interior is the 11th Doctor, If someone can make a nice pic of the 11th Doctor’s exterior, I’ll change it.

P.P.S. I ended up changing it to Tennant’s interior before the posting… Now they match!

    I really like the TARDIS interior image. Where did you find it? I have yet to find it on Google images.

  2. Lisa says:

    This is brilliant! I went into the app store and found several DW ringtones AND I have a blue (*)Speck brand iPhone cover. This will totally solidify my nerd status!

    I made my home screen the secondary control room from the Tom Baker era. Had to crop it down to just the console and the door…

    My lock screen is from a comic…

    I see you are using my Exterior image….I’m glad you like it but I am pleased one of you left my URL as a form of credit.

    Using Google’s new image search using an image, I was able to find the TARDIS exterior picture used in this article!! I’ve been searching since this posting, but I finally have success, enjoy! Thanks Google!

  6. TB says:

    I absolutely love this idea, but I can’t seem to find pictures of Tennant’s TARDIS, neither interior or exterior, quite living up to yours… Is there any way you could maybe possibly post your sources?

    i just found this great wallpaper of the TARDIS hit by the Back to the Future Delorean. i totally nerded out when i found this, thought i’d share.×1200/delorean-vs-tardis.jpg

  10. Christina says:

    I’m doing that right now. Actually, as soon as I find a good picture of the TARDIS exterior, it is becoming quite a difficult task.

  11. Beulah says:

    I’m personally more interested in David Tennant’s posterior. Where can I find images of that?

  12. Doug says:

    This works for iPad too! I’ve downloaded Doctor Who wallpaper before, but it never occurred to me to have a Tardis exterior as my lock screen and the interior as my home screen. Brilliant!

    I couldn’t find the exterior shot pictured above either, but I found these, which might even work better with an iPad since I mostly work in landscape:

    (This is the one I chose!)

  13. Cass says:

    You are a true whovian…..I love you please make a point to talk about Dr Who at least once a day.

  14. LifelongCargo says:

    Matt, where’d you find the awesome exterior picture? I’ve Googled and Binged *shudder* for “TARDIS Exterior” with narry a badass result like yours… I did however get a bunch of poorly-chosen.
    Should I use Lycos or Netscape to search for it?

  15. Leek says:

    Man, I got so excited to do this, but my rinky dink 2nd gen iPod Touch doesn’t support the home screen wallpaper. I’m still leaving the lock screen wallpaper as the TARDIS, though, because it’s awesome. I also didn’t even know about the folder thing — it’s GREAT.

  16. deb says:

    Be still, my beating heart!
    This is the best reason I have seen to get one of these since The Mighty Boosh app!
    Thank you for sharing, Matt!

  17. cameron says:

    Where is the exterior pic from I can’t seem to find a good one, any idea?

  18. Marie says:

    I love how i read this just as I ordered my new “I ♥ ♥ The Doctor” t-shirt…*nerd excitement*

  19. stephen p. says:

    no you got it right. that interior is the 10th doctor’s tardis. the 11th doctor’s interior has multiple levels and different roundels. here is the 11th doctor’s TARDIS inside:

  20. Asking for TARDIS images, now that is nerdsourcing!
