Nice pix Steve. Correction required though: Old red Pommie phone box is not representative of Dr. Who's Tardis. The Tardis was (is?) a blue Police phone box - used by them in the days before radios and mobile phones etc. They were a lot bigger than the one you saw.

Amazed it's still there. Is it still actually used as a phone box? There are still a lot about but many are not in use and don't even have phones in them. You can buy them for £1. Serious. They just want to get rid of them.

Been to Gozo once back in the 70's and visited Malta quite a few times when I was in the Navy and the Poms still had a base there - HMS St. Angelo. Nice place, nice beaches.

Correct Gary. Much bigger. Cavernous in fact - according to the experience of the one The Doctor has.
Don't think the Malta box was a working phone booth. Didn't need to try - I had a mobile, which wouldn't work in the middle of the Mediterranean, so gave up on phones.
You back at Murwillumbah this year? Andrea and I are firming up our New Year plans and Tassie's place is on our short list.
