The blue Police Box exterior of the TARDIS is an instantly recognisable cultural icon but the TARDIS interior changes almost as regularly as the Doctor himself. When the TARDIS desktop changes, the console room changes drastically.

It has to be said that poor Rory’s time travelling with the Doctor wasn’t the most straightforward. His many deaths became a trope of the Moffat era and an episode featuring Arthur Darvill felt incomplete if it didn’t feature a death and subsequent resurrection for his loveable character.
