At last, with less than a week to go before season five of Doctor Who launches (season five in post-revival terms, that is – season 31 overall) and Matt Smith‘s reign as the eleventh Doctor begins (the first episode airs in the UK on Easter Saturday, April 3, on April 17 in the US and Canada and on April 18 in Australia), we finally have our first proper look at the new TARDIS interior.
We already knew that the console room would be split over two levels and have been promised a look at some other rooms in the TARDIS but for now, all the shots are of the main level of the console room.
If, like me, you were a bit confused that the Doctor and Amy (played by Scots actress Karen Gillan) appear to be standing in front of two different versions of the Tardis console, in fact they are standing on the perspex platform in the top picture and down on the “Swiss-cheese”-style main floor in the others.
So, what do you think? Comments welcome.

UPDATE: MARCH 30, 2010 – Click here for the first official photos of the new TARDIS interior!
The first episode of the new series of Doctor Who (the fifth since the series was revived), starring Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor, received its world premiere in Cardiff on Thursday night.
We already knew that the TARDIS gets a makeover, inside and out, during the first episode but the interior is still being kept a closely guarded secret.
However a few clues have slipped out – we know that the console room will be split over several levels, linked by a spiral staircase. We are also promised we will finally see some other of the TARDIS’s other rooms for the first time since the series was revived.
This is the view from outside the TARDIS looking in (a cloth backdrop is used during filming to give the impression of a large interior):
This is taken from the BBC trailer for the new series and appears to show The Doctor sitting in a swing seat on the upper level of the console room:
And finally, for now, from fan website Inside The Tardis, we have this, which appears to be the wardrobe room (EDIT: oops, just realised that this is actually the old (9th/10th Doctor) TARDIS, from the scene in The Christmas Invasion in which 10th Doctor David Tennant was choosing his new outfit):
Watch this space (including Time And Relative Dimensions)..!
