In this paper we investigated the effect the relativistic effect would have on the TARDIS from
the the BBC television programme Doctor Who. We aimed to calculate the speed at which the
TARDIS would have to travel in order to appear red rather than its iconic blue colour. We found
that the TARDIS would have to be travelling at 1.3 x 108m/s (2 s.f) away from an observer to
appear red. We felt this was a reasonable speed for the spaceship to be travelling at due to it’s
advanced time and space travelling capabilities.
