Written for Challenge 436: Materialise at dw100.

Summary: The TARDIS isn’t at all like other spacecraft.

Anyone seeing the TARDIS arrive somewhere probably thinks they’re hallucinating or dreaming. It doesn’t drift gently down from space to land on a planet, instead it simply appears, often inside existing structures.

It materialises gradually before the astonished eyes of witnesses, fading in and out accompanied by a grinding, droning sound until at last it achieves solidity, looking like little more than a tall, blue wooden box with a light on the top.

Even that’s deceptive; the interior of the TARDIS far exceeds its exterior dimensions. Small wonder people looking inside can’t believe their eyes.

The Doctor cherishes their reactions.
