Jade Wootton, aged 16, with her brother Jerome, 18 and a Dr Who Tardis

WITH her flowing locks and a stunning dress in Tardis blue, Jade Wootton looks like the perfect travelling companion for any discerning Time Lord.

The 16-year-old arrived in style for her end-of-school prom, materialising in a replica of the famous time machine from Doctor Who. While friends opted for sports cars and limousines, Jade stepped out of the blue box for Dormston School's prom at Ramada Park Hall Hotel in Wolverhampton.

But instead of gliding through the vortex, her Tardis was carried on the back of a hire truck driven by her father, Paul, aged 49. Mr Wootton bought the Tardis out of BBC storage in Lincoln for £300 last year. It is believed the box was used for filming for episodes of the classic series in the 1980s.

Its age meant Mr Wootton had to replace the windows, roof and rear side to the box, along with giving it a fresh lick of dark blue paint - all at a cost of £450.

My son is a massive fan and when we saw it up for sale we got it, hiring a truck to bring it home from Lincoln. In the past few weeks I've been working flat out to get it ready for the prom."
