‘Doctor Who’ thing of the day: TARDIS spotted in 7,000-year-old cave painting?
A cave painting in Utah dating from around 5000 BC appears to depict the TARDIS, which is pretty cool. Of course the Doctor would have visited the native peoples of ancient Utah for a nice relaxing sedentary hunter-gatherer vacation.
The British newspaper The Sun, via which I discovered this image, reliably tries to turn this into something provocative:
A CAVE painting created 7,000 years ago has stunned experts – by appearing to show Doctor Who’s time-travelling Tardis.
One, I doubt “experts” are “stunned,” unless The Sun consulted a gaggle of eight-year-olds buying bowties at Topshop. Two, he’s not “Doctor Who” — he’s just “the Doctor.”
I mean: Duh.
The photo is by Bret Webster, whose site is full of beautiful images of the American West, and whom, bizarrely, The Sun credits as Bret Walker.
