Welcome to the new Black TARDIS. What started years ago as an (overly) ambitious idea to create an entire community for Black/POC Doctor Who fans is now a personal project run by me, Nicole. Like the Doctor, it has had many iterations. And like the Doctor, it has remained the same at its core.
Black TARDIS started on Tumblr. It’s where I first encountered Doctor Who fandom. It’s where I first encountered the Martha (and Mickey) hate that would prompt my friend and I to create this. It’s where I have participated in Discourse™. And it is where I found my niche, and where people found me.
I love Tumblr for that, but it is very limited and what I want is the ability to grow and adapt without restraints. I want to create and curate more. I want to make it as easy as possible for people to engage. I want the freedom and flexibility I can only create for myself. So, I’m taking everything I’ve already built on Tumblr, bringing it here, and adding to it. I’m making it something the same, but different — better.
This site will build on that foundation. Black TARDIS will still be there, but it’ll also be here and it’ll be more. I hope you’ll follow me on my journey through time and space.
