Doctor Who Funeral - When Sebastian Neale, a devoted fan of the British sci-fi series DOCTOR WHO died, his friends in Wales gave him a gala Galifreyen send off by placing their friend's body in a coffin resembling the Doctor's TARDIS, a blue time-travelling spacecraft shaped like a police telephone booth.

TARDIS Funeral Casket  - DOCTOR WHO

For music at the ceremony, those in attendance were treated to the theme song for the DOCTOR WHO series. As mourners entered the church, a sound byte from the episode “The Pyramids of Mars” was played: “I’m a Time Lord… I’m not a human being. I walk in Eternity.”

The minister replaced phrases from the bible with quotes from the DOCTOR WHO series, including a famous speech as spoken by the First Doctor actor William Hartnell during “The Dalek Invasion of Earth”:

“One day, I will come back. Yes, I will come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine.”

Sebastion Neale, who had earned the nickname "Doctor Who" from other fans of the show, died in 2009 from head injuries.
