T is for TARDIS - Imagine a fan so devoted to the sci-fi series Doctor Who that he was buried in a casket shaped like the time traveling TARDIS. Now imagine two of them. That's right, it happened twice.

In October 2004, long-time Doctor Who fan Tim Haws died of cancer. His brother converted a wardrobe into a replica of the TARDIS for his coffin.

In June 2009, Welsh Sebastian Neale was also an avid fan of the Doctor, partly because he had a strong resemblance to David Tennant. After a fatal head injury, Neale was also buried with a coffin decorated to look like the TARDIS.

Now I know what you're thinking...where can I get a TARDIS coffin? From Creative Coffins, that's where. Place your orders now.
