I recently got a T-Shirt with the following print: Outer Dimensions of the TARDIS Now i am wondering if these are official measurements which were/are used by the BBC to build the TARDIS or if they are estimates. I already searched for offical measurments but i wasn't able to find anything useful.

  • It looks right, accounting for avg height of the mostly human or human-appearing, but I don't know where you'd find an official source either.

    This appears to be a fan-work but one that's based on the original artists blueprints; s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/5d/4d/f7/…

  • Note that the current TARDIS does not have the same dimensions as those used in previous series.

The measurements are accurate and look as though they are taken from the 2004/2005 plans drawn by Stephen Nicholas for BBC CYMRU WWALES.

These plans were on display at the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff
