  1. I kinda want to do the opposite with that TARDIS thing. Make a large room that looks like a police box from the outside. Not exactly sure how to do that. Maybe have the TARDIS door flush with the outside of the room and use 3D displays to create the illusion of a police box parked in front of a building?
