Doctor Who fans want to see TARDIS in Olympic adventure

For a machine capable of travelling through time and space in seconds, the 100 metres or high jump should be a breeze for the TARDIS, as a survey of Doctor Who fans reveals the place they would most like to see the time machine land is the Olympic Stadium, Stratford, London.

In a poll of 1,428 BBC Magazines readers, conducted for Doctor Who Adventures Magazine, 21% of respondents said the Olympic Stadium was the place they would most like to see the TARDIS land, beating off competition from the pyramids (13%), with music festival Glastonbury coming third with 11%. This was followed by next weekend's Royal Wedding (10%) and then the Silverstone Grand Prix (6%).

In this week's Doctor Who Adventures Magazine, on sale now, there is a free TARDIS money box to celebrate the return of the Time Lord to TV screens on Easter Saturday (BBC1, 6pm). The magazine is launching a competition to get readers to take pictures of the TARDIS in the craziest place imaginable with the chance to win a Sony cyber-shot camera. The closing date for the competition is 18 May 2011. Full details can be found in this week's magazine.
