The Picture We Never Thought Wed See

An early Spurious Award this week, featuring Tim Burton and a prop in unexpected convergence

Admit it – you never thought you’d see this: director Tim Burton exiting the TARDIS. Quite fitting, really, since there has been a Burton-esque feel to certain parts of the latest season of Doctor Who . But, no, Burton hasn’t signed up to direct an episode, sadly. This was just all part of the fun at the BAFTA awards last night, when the BBC inexplicably decided to have a bunch of celebs emerging from the time machine.
