Expatriated Londoner Mick Shillingford has always enjoyed the television program Doctor Who. That's why The Fish & Chip Shop owner has built out the space adjacent to his restaurant, turned it into a proper, English-style pub, and decorated with Doctor Who paraphernalia. The TARDIS Room, named for the good doctor's time machine (and an acronym for Time And Relative Dimension In Space), may soon be a favorite gathering space for fanboys (and girls) who, in addition to noshing on traditional British pub fare and knocking back 20-ounce English pints, can expect to hear live music on weekends and during mid-week open mics. Plans are also in place to add HD big screens to show the program's most recent season as well as Doctor Who-inspired trivia nights. Of course, Shillingford says TARDIS patrons can also enjoy what he confidently insists are the only authentically prepared British fish and chips in the city. Chad Walsh, 2/7/2012
