First impressions can be deceiving – as people who enter the Tardis in Doctor Who for the first time well know.
And while this unassuming bungalow is rooted in Tyne and Wear (rather than whizzing around time and space), it too hides a sprawling interior that is not immediately obvious.
From the front, this property in Well Ridge Close, Whitley Bay, appears to be a rather large single-storey house.
Yet it’s actually on three floors – and comes complete with an indoor pool and sauna.

When is a police box not a police box? When it’s a time-travelling Tardis that’s bigger on the inside than outside
It might take a while to do up the interior… The Doctor’s Tardis
For those not familiar with Time Lord transportation, a Tardis (Time and Relative Dimension in Space) can take passengers to any point in time and space.
Amazingly, the interior is much larger than its exterior, which looks like an old London police box.
The Tardis is in some respects alive. It has a ‘soul’, which was once trapped inside the body of a woman, and will often redirect itself to where it thinks it needs to be.
It can blend in with its surroundings using a ‘chameleon circuit’.
The Doctor’s Tardis is broken and stuck in its current form.
It can, however, turn invisible – and also comes with handy tools.
For instance, it can translate speech and writing for people travelling inside it, enabling them to understand any alien language even once they step outside.
