Ever want to have a party inside the TARDIS console room with all your friends?

Of course you have!

Well, there's a guy who can help with that.

And no, it isn't the Doctor.

Jayman White is from the countryside of Sunshine Coast Australia.

When he's not recreating the inside of the greatest time-space travel machine the universe has ever seen, he works part-time in construction with his father, and as a barista/bartender the rest of the time.

Jayman told BuzzFeed Life, he's been a fan of Doctor Who since he was 10 years old.

He grew up watching the black and white reruns after school.

He built his console room when he was 18 (he's now 22).

Originally created for a webseries he was planning, but the plans fell apart due mostly to living in a fairly remote place.

It took a year to finish in between working overtime at a cheese factory and a busy social life.

When asked what made him decide to build it, he said "the Doctor's console room has always inspired me, so I was already eager to build one."

He says the hardest part to create was the ceiling unit.

"It's hot, dim, high up and poky. Very difficult to put together and install everything up there. Mostly improvised too."

Some of the gadgets on the control panel are over 50 years old.

He says, "I got the bulk of the controls from the parts shed at the cheese factory I worked at. All for free haha. Very lucky. Otherwise, thrift shops and junkyards."

While most people say how impressed they are with the whole thing...

Especially the effort put into it.

Especially the effort put into it.

Others tell him it's overwhelming and just want to play around with the controls.

You can't blame them.

You can see all the pictures here, as well as check out videos from the control room on his YouTube page.
