TARDISes to Hit Northamptonshire Streets?

While the Doctor himself hardly knows exactly where his TARDIS may end up; one man who has some idea where he’d like it to be heading is Adam Simmonds, who won the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) election in Northamptonshire last week.


Intending to bring back the familiar blue boxes to the streets of his county, the Doctor Who fan commented to Northampton Chronicle & Echo:

I would like to bring a focal point back into villages. It’s all about putting the police back onto the streets and I would love to be able to put Tardises back in every community.

The project, code-named The Blue Box Initiative would see a series of small police bases created across the county, particularly in areas which currently have a low police presence.

Speaking in his election manifesto, Mr Simmonds commented that the boxes would be a literal beacon; a location where the police and members of the public could exchange information.

Taking the Doctor Who connection even further the PCC Commissioner also spoke of his desire to work with the Northampton born Matt Smith to launch the project; although nothing has been confirmed by either party.

However, not all areas of his watch would receive new Police Boxes under The Blue Box Initiative, with some areas likely to have policing facilities set up in existing shops or public buildings.
