A Google Maps user claims to have found the Doctor's Tardis on a busy London street which is a long-forgotten Easter egg from almost 10 years ago.

The Whovian posted a screenshot of the famous blue police box from Earls Court road to Reddit yesterday, writing: "Random TARDIS in the middle of London (Why does this look so similar to the TARDIS easter egg)."

The reason why is simply because it is!

In 2013, it was discovered that on Google Maps users could click on an arrow to enter the blue box and take a look around the control room – and the feature still works today!

Fans can explore a full 360-degree view of the replica of the set created for Matt Smith in his role as the eleventh incarnation of the Doctor as the Tardis "redecorated" in 2013.

Doctor Who’s production designer Michael Pickwoad, revealed the console room as the new home to the Doctor and "the impossible girl" Clara Oswald (played by Jenna Coleman) as they travel together through space and time.

However, the interior has continued to change throughout the show as it has adapted to each doctor but the 'Easter egg' remains the same.

The news comes after Doctor Who fans were left ecstatic on New Year's Eve, as a huge comedy icon made a surprise appearance in the latest episode.

The Daleks were already causing death and destruction to characters across England, and took their first victim just minutes into the programme.

Pauline McLynn – best known for playing cajoling tea lady Mrs Doyle in iconic sitcom Father Ted – appeared as Sarah's (Aisling Bea) mother in the latest instalment of Doctor Who: Flux.
