Retrogames camp, episode 28, the cheek

Pierre’s parents had put in their letter, the Sos paper Pierre had sent them.

They had written their answer on its back.

Dear Pierre,

A bit emphatic!

We follow what happens in the camp through a website. It is not that horrible! Living for a while without any electronic devices and internet  will do the three of you much good.

Your sudden interest in Tardis is quite surprising. We read somewhere that it can be camouflaged in other things but the shape remain globally the same.

You don’t ask but, yes, we get well.

Enjoy the last days of your camp.

Big kisses

Mum and Dad.

And they had had the cheek to include the printout of a wikipedia’s page…. He would suggest them a no electronic device  cure if he ever managed to get back.

Where would he find a police box in Latrecey, lost village of deep France?
The TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension iSpace)[nb 2] is a time machine and spacecraft in the British science fiction television program Doctor Who and its associated spin-offs.

The unpredictability of the TARDIS’s short-range guidance (relative to the size of the Universe) has often been a plot point in the Doctor’s travels. Also in « The Doctor’s Wife », the TARDIS reveals that much of this « unpredictability » was actually intentional on her part in order to get the Doctor « where [he] needed to go » as opposed to where he « wanted to go ».

Although « TARDIS » is a type of craft rather than a specific one, the Doctor’s TARDIS is usually referred to as « the » TARDIS or, in some of the earlier serials, just as « the ship », « the blue box », « the capsule » or even « the police box ».[nb 3]

Doctor Who has become so much a part of British popular culture that not only has the shape of the police box become more immediately associated with the TARDIS than with its real-world inspiration, the word « TARDIS » has been used to describe anything that seems to be bigger on the inside than on the outside.[6] The name TARDIS is a registered trademark of the British Broadcasting Corporation.[7]
