Doctor Who TARDIS Bento

I love Doctor Who. I only started watching it a few months ago and managed to plow through four seasons and several specials. I am only three episodes/specials away from the new season which is currently airing (on BBC America for me). I can't wait for my next Netflix delivery.

Since Doctor Who is a BBC show, I decided to do a British themed bento to go with my TARDIS.

A lot of my entertainment comes from England. I love Monty Python, Harry Potter, Ricky Gervais, Neil Gaiman... the list goes on and on. I don't know a lot about British food. "The Kipper and the Corpse" episode of Fawlty Towers comes to mind, and I wonder why that guy wanted to eat fish for breakfast. The one thing that is mentioned in nearly every British show/book I like is curry. Since I am assuming that they mean Indian curry, I decided to do a vegetarian curry and rice for my Doctor Who bento lunch.

I used a leak-resistant container for this lunch, because the curry is a bit gooey, and a microwave safe container, because I plan to heat this one up at work. Also, I chose a blue container because I couldn't easily make the TARDIS blue, as it should be.  

The TARDIS is made from nori on rice-cheese. To top it all off, for dessert a Mars Bar! Get it? Because he travels through space... and Mars Bars are from England. I would have loved to include a Cadbury Flake, the best candy bar ever, but they are hard to find around here. Plus that wouldn't have fit the theme.

So, I'm off to watch Torchwood while I wait for my next episodes of Doctor Who to arrive.

This looks awesome. I love Doctor Who and Torchwood and have also stuffed all of the series into a few months. England has great entertainment and culture, I wish I could live there. Your bento box looks appetizing, and I love everything that can combine Doctor Who in everyday life.

Was browsing through for some ideas for the kids' bento box and stumbled upon yours. What an awesome collection of bento lunches you have! Thanks for sharing your creations, it has given me the much-needed inspiration for next week :)

As a fellow Dr.Who fan I like both your TARDIS and Dalek lunches... Can't wait for the next season to see the 11th Doctor - still can't let go of David Tennant though :) Cheers.
