  • Broken Link?

    When I click "this link" under Image 2, "Visit the Tardis," it doesn't show London. Instead, I get a map of the U.S.

    • Further Info

      P.S. The above issue occurs when using Firefox 28. It works in Internet Explorer 11.

      • Apparently it's the Way the Cookies Were Set

        It turns out it wasn't the browser. The link doesn't work when you have Google Maps set to the classic version. When I return to the new version, it works.

  • Re; The T.A.R.D.I.S. visit

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank Charlie and the doctor for this opportunity to visit the T.A.R.D.I.S.' main room. It was very entertaining and educational.

    Thank you, doctor.

    The problem is that you are too used to simply clicking on a link [i.e. left-clicking]. What you should do instead is right-click and follow the menu to use "open in a new tab".

    I have Firefox 28 also and it never gives me any trouble at all.
