So for those of you who aren’t exactly hip with nerdy media lingo you might already be lost….well thanks to Wikipedia here is what I mean by “Easter Egg”
Now if you don’t know what Doctor Who is, or have never heard of the term “TARDIS”, stop reading now and start binge watching the show. I started with the 9th doctor, which is a good place to start if you want to get hooked right away. And if not, then this article is probably not for you but don’t worry I won’t judge you…much…
Anyway, the Easter Egg hidden in Google Earth is simply the TARDIS, hiding within the streets of England. If you are now jumping up and down excited, dying to get your own look inside the TARDIS here’s how to do it.
If you haven’t already downloaded Google Earth do that here, http://www.google.com/earth/
Click Search and you’ll get a long list of places, but luckily the one you want is choice B, off of Earl’s Court Road in London. Go ahead and click that option and the map should center in on that specific location. Using the zoom option on the right (shown below), you can zoom all the way down to the street view. Keep zooming and you will actually find yourself inside the TARDIS and able to take a brief look around. Bloody brilliant eh? Whatever nerd decided to place this Easter Egg, I owe you a cookie. You are now my new best friend. And for a little extra Easter Egg fun, check out a few of these reviews Buzz Feed posted on their site. (http://www.buzzfeed.com/ailbhemalone/there-is-an-incredible-doctor-who-easter-egg-in-google-maps)All in all, I’m left feeling more and more excited for the 50th Anniversary special, and also feeling like I might legitimately have a Doctor Who problem. (The problem of course being I simply cannot get enough)
