Any Idea where I can find some signs for a 13th Doctor's TARDIS? All Images I find on google seem to be at a awkward angle :)

I've not got a solid answer for you, but hypothetically if you can get information on the fonts used you could recreate them yourself reasonably easily. Clayton Hickman would be a good person to ask, he's like the world expert on fonts and tardises.

The TARDISbuilders.com forum has tons of recreations of the signs in the TARDIS reference section, you could try there. I know I've seen the pull to open sign for 13's TARDIS there, not sure if anyone has done the top signs.

THat's a very odd choice. Is the hair on those easily removable or something? I'd have thought someone with kind of a round head shape and short to no hair would be best suited.

When you take the hair off there’s a nice round bald head underneath, and the features are soft. It’d take some sculpting to make it actually look like Nardole but there isn’t really any kind of head that even slightly resembles Matt Lucas.

Huh, I didn't know that, that's really weird, but probably useful to know for people who do customs, for sure.

What about Churchill? I mean, he's a bit bald, and you've got the weight...
