The Professor=Doctor Who

Aug 03, 2011
I just thought: Is the Professor in the 5 B.O.X.E.S event based on Doctor Who, a show where an actor plays as The Doctor, traveling in the Tardis into new dimensions to save the world. Episodes such as "The Satan Pit" or "Girl in the Fireplace has many adventures. The W101 B.O.X looks a lot like the Tardis in that show. Rose Tyler in the show is based on Rose Piper, who is selling the recipes for pogo stick in each B.O.X, and each B.O.X has a police call station illusion from the outside, like in this show. Am I correct or wrong based on my theory, that this event all came from Doctor Who? Please reply.

Correct. And a fun tidbit is the fact that the Seventh Doctor was called Professor by his companion, Ace.There are quite a number of other references to the show as well.

Another cool fact. There's a drop reagent called "Sonic Spring" which I believe is a play on "Sonic Screwdriver" also, the maestro's wand is probably a Sonic Screwdriver.

I agree with you.
I have noticed this for a long time, which is surprising since I know very little about Doctor Who.

By the way, I would've asked this question sooner, but I needed more evident proof of Doctor Who being related to the Professor. Please keep these replies and opinions coming! From, Oni Slayer.

I honestly think it's a reference to Doctor Who as well, though I have never seen Doctor Who myself.
I mean, the whole concept of "travelling back in time" in the "B.O.X" and the drop, "Sonic Spring" (as someone else mentioned) are basically a sum up of Doctor Who, I don't really think you can fit in more references than this ^^

Yes, The Professor is the Doctor Who equivalent of Wizard101 as it's a reference in the game. Another one is Scotland Yard which is where the Metropolitian Police of London's HQ is located and also if you didn't know I was talking about Marleybone (which hopefully you did), Marleybone is based off of London, England.
