The Subtitle For The TARDIS In “Doctor Who” Is “VWORP!” And People Are Loving It

“VWORP! VWORP! VWORP!”

Posted on

Last night’s episode of Doctor Who featured our first look at the brand new TARDIS. Here is a quick review.

Thanks, Jodie.

Thanks, Jodie.

Oh, and the best thing in the TARDIS? The fact that it now dishes out custard creams on request.

However, I highly recommend watching Doctor Who with the subtitles on for this reason alone: the subtitle that appears every time you see the TARDIS.

Viewers who spotted it really liked it.

Distant VWORP is my new Techno-Metal band name. #DoctorWho

The good people @BBCOne subtitles had some fun with the noise the TARDIS makes #DoctorWho⁠ ⁠

However, the use of VWORP is nothing new. In fact, it dates back years.

The Dr Who subtitles have been using "Vworp-Vworp!" for the TARDIS sound since Matt Smith's era, friends. https://t.co/6ej7CqJ9Cj

Here is how it sounded during the Capaldi era.

It also appeared during the Matt Smith era, although not always. Sometimes this was shown instead.

Doesn’t have the same ring to it, to be honest.

Although, compared to how American television subtitles were for Jodie when she was a guest, this is still OK.

Just a shame the titles aren’t like this, to be honest.
