While we countdown to 2018 and the eventual arrival of the new Doctor, there is still one last thing left to regenerate.

The official Doctor Who Twitter account shared a time-lapsed behind-the-scenes clip of the deconstruction of the set used to shoot the show’s scenes inside the Time And Relative Dimension in Space, aka TARDIS.

Every last piece of the TARDIS set is taken down to classical music by Ivete Sangalo. It’s a bittersweet farewell to Peter Capaldi’s run after three seasons and 40 episodes. Doctor Who fans said goodbye to Capaldi on his last episode, "Twice Upon a Time," which aired on Christmas, and they were left hanging after catching a glimpse of the impending Doctor Who: Jodie Whittaker.

Whittaker will be the 13th Time Lord who will steer the TARDIS under the new showrunner’s guidance, Chris Chibnall. Chibnall has some large shoes to fill after Steven Moffat's decade-long run on the show. It will be exciting to see the new TARDIS with the first female lead to play the iconic Doctor Who character. The BBC announced that the next season is expected to premiere in autumn 2018.
