The TARDIS has landed at the Taobao Maker Festival in Hangzhou, China, where it will stay until 16 September 2018. This four-day festival is a celebration of China’s young entrepreneurs, organised by Taobao, China’s largest mobile commerce destination developed by Alibaba Group.

The TARDIS is parked on the banks of Hangzhou’s West Lake, the UNESCO World Heritage site where the outdoor festival is held. Festival-goers are able to enter the specially constructed TARDIS and print out limited-edition Doctor Who postcards, bringing home a snapshot of best moments and lines from the long-running series.
