The trim is white. Great contrast.

Did You Know
- British Police Boxes were made out of concrete.
- They were a miniature police station.
- The police box had a telephone to talk directly to a police station.
- The light on top flashed when the telephone was in use, so the closest officer could see it and respond.
- London had almost 700 blue police boxes in 1963 when Doctor Who was first on TV.
- The TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space) was camouflaged. It would not have been obvious as a police box, with them so common.
- The blue box was built for the Doctor Who show. It was not a prop left over in the warehouse.
- BBC, not the Police, owns the copyright to the police box.
