The TARDIS will be materialising at the Royal Horticultural SocietyChelsea Flower Show honoring the legacy of Doctor Who. The new exhibition, called A Garden In Time, features as its centrepiece a full-scale TARDIS with sound and light effects. The garden depicts the changes in the world since the birth of the series in 1963. It includes items such as a 1960s Cardiff rugby shirt and a Doctor Who annual featuring on its cover the first Doctor, William Hartnell
Created by Cardiff Council Landscape Officer Mo Dorken and her team, one half of the site shows a 1960s urban garden, while the other half is based around modern gardening ideas and styles with emphasis on sustainability, recycling and climate change.
"The Chelsea Flower Show is iconic and attracts great attention and thousands of visitors from around the world," said Coun Nigel Howells, Cardiff Council's Executive Member for Sport, Leisure and Culture. "We are proud that Cardiff will be represented there, and I’m sure A Garden In Time will do justice to the city and to Wales."
