Minecraft fan recreates Gallifrey from Doctor Who

Someone who’s obviously a fan of both Minecraft and Doctor Who brought the two together by building a block replica of the Time Lords’ home, Gallifrey. Known as one of the most influential survival games of all time, the Mojang sandbox title has proven to be a never-ending source of player creativity on countless occasions. Its distinctive graphics that appeal to all ages, expansive landscape, and near-infinite building potential have kept it at the forefront of the gaming industry for years.


Given its importance, it is not uncommon for Minecraft and other forms of pop culture meet in the middle. From recreations of famous moments from cult films to an official Simpsons Opening in the visual style of the game, not to mention projects that contribute to awareness or charity funds, Minecraft has cemented itself as an important aspect of mass culture. No matter how old the game seems to be getting, people always end up with some pretty spectacular builds.

Let’s take Reddit user tucker-ed-out as an example. In a series of images uploaded to the Minecraft Forum, they showed their skills by exhibiting a replica of the planet Gallifrey as featured on the hugely successful BBC sci-fi show. Each screenshot gives a little taste of the blocky replica of the Doctor’s House. User says that this project includes every single location from the fictional world as well as Daleks, Cybermen, Chancellery Guards and more. It doesn’t look like they’ve made the build available for download, but tucker-ed-out has told those interested that they can visit the planet on the user’s server.

As one of the longest-running shows in history, it was only a matter of time before someone replicated assets Doctor Who in Minecraft, and this isn’t the first time someone has done something similar. Last year a fan decided to create his own accurate representation of the TARDIS police box. This is remarkable in itself, especially for fans of the show, but what made it even more impressive was the way they managed to simulate the physics-defying interior that the famous time machine is known for.

Given the sheer number of platforms that support Minecraft, from previous generation consoles to mobile devices, it’s little wonder it’s reached so many gamers around the world. Even as time goes by, there will always be fans willing to show off their projects and from what has been shown over the years, many people in the community have a lot of talent and dedication.

Minecraft is now available on Mobile, PC, PS3, PS4, Switch, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
