A TARDIS is a product of the advanced technology of the Time Lords, an extraterrestrial civilization to which the programme's central character, the Doctor belongs. A properly maintained and piloted TARDIS can transport its occupants to any point in time and any place in the universe. The interior of a TARDIS is much larger than its exterior, which can blend in with its surroundings using the ship's "chameleon circuit".
In the series, the Doctor pilots an unreliable, obsolete TT Type 40, Mark 3 TARDIS. Its chameleon circuit is faulty, leaving it locked in the shape of a 1960s-style London police box after a visit to London in 1963.

All this time since I discovered that Lost was based upon Doctor Who: The Face of Evil and The Key to Time 1 & 2, in season 5, I have been looking for evidence that they placed a well hidden TARDIS somewhere in one of the scenes. I was wrong about the visual part but they couldn’t do a show based upon Doctor Who without saying TARDIS at least and they did in:
There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3 transcript
SCIENTIST: [On video] Hello. I'm Dr. Edgar Halliwax... [warps and distorts] and this is the orientation film for station six of the DHARMA Initiative.
As you've no doubt surmised, station six, or "The Orchid," is not... [warps and distorts] a botanical research unit. The unique properties... [warps and distorts] of this island have created a kind of Casimir effect, allowing the DHARMA initiative to conduct unique experiments in both space and time. [Clatter] This... is "the vault", constructed adjacent to a pocket of what we believe... [warps and distorts] to be negatively charged "exotic matter". Great care must be taken to avoid leaving inorganic materials... [warps and distorts] inside the chamber. The electromagnetic energy within the island can be highly volatile and unpredictable. Now for your own safety and the safety of those around you, metallic objects must never... [warps and distorts] be placed within the vault.
[There's a loud clank as Ben sets a metal trash bin into the vault.]
SCIENTIST: [On video] [whirring] In our first demonstration, we will attempt to shift the test subject 100 milliseconds ahead in four-dimensional space. For the briefest... [warps and distorts] of moments, the animal will seem to disappear, but in reality... [voice distorts]
[Suddenly, the tape starts to rewind. Locke tries pressing the stop button, but the tape keeps rewinding. He bangs on the top of the videotape player, but to no effect. The machine keeps whirring. Locke gets up and goes to Ben.]
LOCKE: Hey. Uh... was he talking about what I think he was talking about?
BEN: If you mean time-travelling bunnies, then yes.
So there you have it Dr. Edgar Halliwax mentions all the aspects of the TARDIS, (time, space, demensional) and when he says "For the briefest... [warps and distorts] of moments, the animal will seem to disappear, but in reality..." it basically means in relative terms! There are other clues to them talking about the TARDIS but this one is the KEY!
The TARDIS just like the rabbit in the experiment seems to dissapear from where it originally was and materializes in another spot relative to the observer.
After reading this do you believe that Lost was a remake? Please leave me your feedback.
