“It’s bigger on the inside!” It’s what The Doctor’s companions are practically required to declare when they first set foot on The Doctor’s spaceship, the TARDIS. Unless you’re super-cool like Miss Clara who proclaimed that “it’s smaller on the outside!”
So how big on the inside is it, exactly? And how much would the TARDIS cost?
In a similar manner to how MoneySupermarket.com calculated the cost of being Iron Man, Movoto created a wonderful infographic on the size and cost of the TARDIS. A small taste is included in the pic accompanying this article, though I recommend clinking on the aforementioned link for a better view.
What’s the verdict? While a 1960’s police box measures 44.2 square feet, the best approximation for its inside size is 2,248,355 square feet- the same size as the interior of the Empire State Building. It would cost about $2.5 billion, or almost ₤2 billion, mate.
Need more awesomely geeky infographics? Don’t fret. I’ve written other articles on infographics with topics ranging from coffee to enemies of the internet.
