TARDIS fan map

Since I'm a big Dr. Who fan as well as a map geek I just wanted to share this.

This fan's map of the TARDIS is so detailed it should be the real thing

The Doctor's spaceship is immeasurable in scope and infinitely complex in design. Good thing it now comes with a map!
So where does the Doctor sleep? What's in his library? How does one make his way through the endless catacombs of the TARDIS to find the rec room or, possibly, an untempered schism? The answer is with this fantastically intricate, series of maps made by fan Alibi_factory, laying out each layer of the bigger-on-the-inside time machine from Gallifrey.
Fan-made, sadly, means it's not official, but, frankly, we think the producers of Doctor Who should keep these images tacked up on their walls for their own reference the next time they want to do a ship-in-a-bottle story. Could come in handy!

Alibi_factory on LiveJournal has made a series of maps, under the guise of a TARDIS instructional pamphlet, of the TARDIS that belongs to that particular Time Lord who goes by the mysterious moniker of the Doctor. We’re fully willing to take these as canon, expecially since if there’s any inaccuracies between these maps and the actual show, well, that’s the TARDIS all over, isn’t it? Besides, this TARDIS has a cafe that serves crystallized aallaf tree sap. That stuff is so hard to find.
I’ve put my eight favorite pages of Alibi_factory’s pamphlet here for your perusal, but there are more than fifteen over at their original post, with links to high-res pdfs suitable for prints. You should check those out too!
(via can see more TARDIS map images here, including file versions that you can create prints from. Download a PDF brochure of the map collection here.
