After impetus (thanks Shan!) and talking it over with the mods, the TARDIS interior will very shortly be accessible. This is not an item--this is more based on the realization that there's no reason for the interior to not exist, provided that the ship has no ability to leave.
The TARDIS has been on the island and under repair of some sort since January of '07. At the moment, the console room is the only accessible part of the ship; the combined efforts of the Doctor, Jack, Ace, and others have managed to get the lights up and the data banks running (with the more-than-occasional Gallifreyan equivalent of the blue screen of death). Having people in it bashing and zapping and having nothing happen is pretty darn boring--the TARDIS is dynamic and almost alive in the DW universe, and to have her so intensely limited is a drain on the Doctor himself.
Having sudden access to the whole interior is no fun, and since DW doesn't really deal with how the TARDIS works, I've decided, with mod approval, that interior access will be expanded as the memory banks improve and come back online. The interior is folded multi-dimensional space, so theoretically once there's enough data storage for the TARDIS to essentially login to different levels and maintain a cohesive space, the actual physical access would come back in dribs and drabs.
In terms of plot, it might be amusing to have parts flicker in and out of existence at inconvenient times. It also could provide tension between those who think this might allow them to leave and those who don't.
I'd love input from all of you regarding when and how to implement this, if it should be gradual or more sudden, and what you'd like to see in the TARDIS. Basics will include the wardrobe, a garden, and the dear ol' boot cupboard. Please comment and discuss.
ETA: Much as I'd like to wait on this, I will be wicked hiatusy from 6 July for two weeks, so please take that into consideration as I would really rather keep the TARDIS limited NPC.
Current Mood: hopeful
