Model of a British Police Box (TARDIS) (Image Reference: 20100101A-E00011)

It’s about time my POTD came back. I’m going to try a so-called 365-Challenge. One photo every day for a year. I did the same challenge in 2008 and the results were posted here on my POTD. This year I’m still going to post the results here on the POTD but I’m also going to be posting them to flickr. There are quite a number of people I know on flickr who are doing the challenge so I want to post the result there as well as here.

Why the police box for today? Today the BBC will broadcast the final Doctor Who episode for the Tenth Doctor. Because of this, I wanted to do something on a Doctor Who theme. I had thought to photograph the group of friends who will be watching it with us. But while I was sorting out my camera and flash units this shot occurred to me.

Update January 2020 – It was ten years ago today that I posted this and New Years Day is again a Doctor Who day. Today, instead of saying good-bye to a Doctor (I still find it hard to believe that it is TEN years since we Doctor number ten left the TARDIS) today we welcome back Jodie Whittaker as Doctor number 13 for what, by all accounts is going to be a very special opening story to the Series 12 or Season 38 if you prefer)

Oh and if anyone is wondering the POTD challenge didn’t last very long back in 2010 and this year… I’m not even going to try!

Settings: 1/160s, f/11, ISO 100. Lens: 105.0 mm @105 mm.
