There is a TARDIS in This Van Gogh Painting

Sep 17, 2013 | 10:00am EDT


It's big enough news that this genuine Van Gogh recently emerged from a Norwegian guy's attic, but now Doctor Who fans have spotted a familiar blue box in the left corner of the painting. 


In an iconic Who episode, the Doctor (Matt Smith) meets Vincent Van Gogh (Tony Curran), who is plagued by a monster that only he can see. After dealing with the monster, Amy and the Doctor bring the underappreciated Van Gogh into the present day to see the modern response to his much-lauded paintings. In the show, Van Gogh dedicates "Vase With 12 Sunflowers" to Amy, but it appears that he dedicated another to the blue police box that helped him learn the value of his work. Watch a clip, including a guest appearance by Bill Nighy, from the show here.
