Doctor Where: Tardis discovered on Google Street View

Thanks to Google Street View, we can now pretend a little harder that the good Doctor is actually paying visits to modern-day England and parking his Tardis in some interesting locations.

Move over, Curiosity rover, Google has already discovered signs of alien life. Eagle-eyed Street View users have noticed Doctor Who's blue police box time machine in various locations all over the United Kingdom.

Since Google blurs the faces of pedestrians caught by its cameras, it's entirely possible that one of the faceless figures near one of the Tardises is actually the Doctor or one of his companions.

Here's a list of Tardis spottings available on Street View, but there are likely more. Just plug them into Google Maps, switch to Street View, and look around until the Tardis comes into view.

"Earls Court, London near Earls Court Station, 224-236 Earl's Court Rd, Earls Court"

"Hull Road Service Station, York, England, YO10 3, United Kingdom"

"High Street, Glasgow, Glasgow City, United Kingdom"

"Buchanan St, Glasgow, Glasgow City, United Kingdom"

This brings up the obvious question of how these Tardis time machines managed to pop up all over the United Kingdom at roughly the same time. The obvious answers is, "Duh, he's a Time Lord. He can be pretty much anywhere at anytime."

Thanks, Google Street View, for reigniting my fantasy of Doctor Who being real. Also, thanks for causing me to look up the much-debated plural of "Tardis." Tardis? Tardii? Tardises? Let the controversy rage.
