IT was due for a makeover after travelling the universe for 900 years —and here is an exclusive peek at how Doctor Who's trusty Tardis looks in the new TV series. The time-travelling police box took months to rebuild, with insiders saying: "The Tardis had to look up-to-date as well as faithful to the original."

The Doctor — now played by Christopher Eccleston, left, with Billie Piper as sidekick Rose — takes it for a spin on Saturday at 7pm on BBC1.

Doctor Who's who in the police box

THE Tardis has had a few transformations over the years.

When Peter Davison was the Doctor in the 1980s, the interior was bright and clumsy-looking with a clunky console.

One of the best interiors was around when Tom Baker was at the helm as the Doctor — the stark silver room contrasting with his vivid, colourful outfits.

CLING-ON ... Davison as the Doc

FOP FLOP ... McGann in '96 film

TIME LAUD ... classic Baker scene

'DIS IS IT ... rough sketch of the new design

WHO LIVES HERE ... computer pit of interior

IN CONTROL .. . the newly designed console

TAR VERY MUCH ... the finished studio set


ARE you ready for the return of the famous theme tune on Saturday? All together now ...
