Bit of a mess.

It's fine. You're doing fine. Just stay calm.


There's always a bit left over, isn't there?  We're all stories in the end...  
Can I just pay respects to the 2010-2012 TARDIS in an unapologetically gushing fashion? Since apparently we will never see it again.
It was fantastic. I think it was perhaps one of the best TARDIS sets ever. Lots of people had a go at it for being too out there, too vibrant, too quirky.  But I think these things, the hodgepodge of elements and items, the angles, the reflective surfaces and scattered circles, gave it a charm and friendly character. And this was really important for the Doctor and the Ponds, because they became their own kind of family living in the TARDIS. And the space gave them room to live.
For example, the shots of the 11th Doctor sitting under the console fiddling, whilst speaking up through the glass floor to his companions, were things of beauty. Same with the little moments, the Ponds in robes about to set off upstairs for bed while the Doctor kept quiet vigil at the console. It enhanced the three characters and their relationship in subtle ways just by enabling these dynamics of scenes.

The staircases leading off into other directions made it feel open and expansive. The introduction of the ‘levels’ was a great idea and used well for staging - it even allowed privacy, such as when the Ponds were discussing the shock of Lake Silencio while the Doctor danced around upstairs.
In general the set just radiated love, which is why with the departure of the Ponds it inevitably had to leave also. Were it to stay, the once inviting space would become a Pond-less void, mocking the Doctor’s loneliness.But I will miss every detail of the place. Even that little bouncy chair.Goodbye, 2010 TARDIS; you really were home.
