Two Tardises (Tardii?) on a building in London.

Doctor Who Christmas special, perhaps? They usually threaten/destroy London each Christmas. :)

This is going to be the forum for something that's been irking me for time. Adding an "i" to pluralise is a LATIN grammatical trope. Thus, if a word is not Latin in origin, it does not take an I in plural.

Octopuses, not octopi. Rhinoceroses (or simply rhinoceros) not rhinoceri.

And since TARDIS is an acronym...

Sorry. Didn't mean to have a go. But it just annoys me.
