purplecat: The Tardis against a spiralling clock face motif. (Who:Tardis)

The Tardis Tin concept (in which DWM interviews a Doctor Who luminary by getting them to pull random questions out of a Tardis Tin) has had surprising longevity. I can see it's easy to prepare (after all the questions already exist) and I wonder if the guests like it - after all generic random questions are unlikely to throw up anything too searching or embarrassing.

I have a Tardis Tin somewhere but I can't quite recall the context in which they were produced. I don't recall it having anything in it (e.g., sweets) on the other hand I don't think I was ever sufficient a completist to have bought an empty Tardis tin. I wonder if a VHS set of some description came in it? It occurs to me that I have enough back issues of DWM that I could probably go through and reconstruct the set of random questions and then put them in the tin, though to what end I can't quite imagine.

It was the Trial of a Time Lord VHS set.

To be fair, it's not especially memorable.

Earlier TARDIS tins were sold as moneyboxes in the early 1980s, one with Tom Baker, the next with Peter Davison. At some stage the unsold tins were sold in bulk to a toffee maker and used for packaging sweets.
