Someone who is evidently a fan of both Minecraft and Doctor Who has put the two together by building a blocky recreation of the home of the Time Lords, Gallifrey. Known for being one of the most influential survival games of all time, the Mojang sandbox title has proven itself on countless occasions to be an unending source of player creativity. Its distinctive graphics, appeal to all ages, sprawling landscape, and near-infinite building potential has kept it at the top of the gaming industry for years.
Given its significance, it’s not unusual for Minecraft and other forms of pop culture to meet in the middle. From recreations of famous moments from iconic films to having an official Simpsons opening made in the game’s visual style, not to mention projects that go towards raising awareness or charity funds, Minecraft has cemented itself as an important aspect of mass culture. No matter how old the game seems to get, people are always engaging in some pretty spectacular builds.
Take Reddit user tucker-ed-out as an example. In a series of images uploaded to the Minecraft forum, they showed off their skills by exhibiting a replica of the planet Gallifrey, as seen in the hugely successful BBC sci-fi show. Each screenshot gives a little taste of the blocky facsimile of the home of the Doctor. The user says this project contains every single location from the fictional world, as well as Daleks, Cybermen, Chancellery Guards, and more. It doesn’t appear as though 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 recreated assets from Doctor Who in Minecraft, and this isn’t the first time someone has done something similar. Last year, a fan decided to create their own accurate representation of the TARDIS police box. This in itself is pretty noteworthy, especially for fans of the show, but what made it even more impressive was the way they managed to simulate the physics-defying interior the famous time machine is known for.
Given the sheer number of platforms that support Minecraft, from previous-gen consoles to mobile devices, it’s hardly surprising that it’s managed to reach so many players across the globe. Even as times goes on, there will always be fans who are willing to showcase their projects, and from what’s been displayed over the years, many people in the community have a lot of talent and dedication.
Minecraft is available now for Mobile, PC, PS3, PS4, Switch, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
