It is interesting to see how much pop culture can influence people's wants and needs; just take a look at the TARDIS Cafe. For fans of the BBC cult favorite 'Doctor Who,' it offers a friendly and familiar place to enjoy a cup of coffee on the go, with a twist. Although the TARDIS Cafe may be considered like gimmick or a tourist trap, I simply think it is a result of the love this TV show receives.
Based in Glascow, Scotland, the TARDIS Cafe is essentially an exact replica of the science fiction show's time traveling machine, from its blue color to its dimensions and shape. Of course, instead of actually offering a chance to travel through time, it offers drinks and treats at a reasonable price.
