    2 answers for every comment -fantasy -realistic fantasy-its a telephone booth because the "chameleon circut" broke, what makes it blend in, obviously reality-it woudve probably cost to much money and time and they couldve lost an icon had they continued to change the tardis every episode. fantasy-he chose his name. its not a real name. doctors help people. reality-idk, a running gag and good name, catchy, mysterious fantasy-Daleks are scary because of what they do not how they look reality-they 1st appeared in the 1960s so of cousre we look at it like... "LAME"(i agree with you) fantasy-he's 900 yrs old and not human. We've been studying time travel some decades? This commentor MAYBE the same. Humans know very little about time travel if any. everything we "know" is theory. those last sentences were fantasy and reality. reality-the "cheesy" is part of the program. It was originally meant as a educational show for younger kids. It turned into entertainment later. Of course its cheesy and things dont add up, its a show and science fiction entertainment.

    apparatus for really distant interstellar sojourns seems to be the most sensible name for a cheesy telephones booth that travels through tim1st and most obvious - it's a phone booth! Would've only blend in ANYWHERE for times in the 20th century. 2nd- Why not instead of the T in Tardis, instead of being blank or just "the", wouldn't it make much more sense to make the T mean "TEMPORAL"? Otherwise it really make much sense or make you think it's a time machine. Also, what the heck is he a doctor of. I have more knowledge in theoretical time travel!! 3- Why in ANY time are the Daleks' a reasonable threat. Probably the cheesiest aspect of a a so called sci-FI series
