According a story in one of today’s British tabloid newspapers, experts are stunned by a cave painting from 5000 BC that looks uncannily like the time-travelling TARDIS from the BBC science-fiction series, Doctor Who.
The Sun reports that a cave-painting, which was created 7,000 years ago, appears “to show Doctor Who’s time-travelling Tardis [sic]”.
Paul Sutherland, the red-top’s “Sun Spaceman” correspondent, elaborates: “The picture dating from 5000 BC portrays mysterious figures around an object looking like the TV police box currently occupied by new Doctor Who Matt Smith and assistant Amy Pond (Karen Gillan).
“Experts believe the picture in Utah, US, was created by mammoth-hunting nomads.”
One unnamed fan is quoted as saying, “The Doctor is always travelling through space and time so maybe we shouldn’t be surprised.”
A photograph of the painting can be seen at Bret Webster’s website.
