It helps you see what’s actually on a street when you’re looking at a map. And now it’s taking a look … inside the Tardis.
The popular Google Maps street view application has a very special surprise for anyone who is looking closely at Earl’s Court Road in London. There in front of Frozen Yogurt Cafe and not far from an entrance to the city’s London subway is a little blue box.
So want to take a look inside the Tardis? You can do just that. Look down on the street for white arrows. If you look closely enough, you can see what looks like a double arrow (>>) pointing toward the Tardis, made popular from “Doctor Who.”
Once you click that, you get an amazing 360-degree look inside the Tardis of the later Matt Smith era.
Google hasn’t commented on this Easter egg, but it’s still up and running — all in time for the 50th anniversary of the “Doctor Who” series.
“Doctor Who” returns with its anniversary special in November, and Peter Capaldi will take over from Smith during the Christmas special on Dec. 25.
