Modular TARDIS Interior?

Reports on the GallifreyBase forum suggest that the new TARDIS interior for Season 31 of Doctor Who (starring Matt Smith and Karen Gillan) is modular, comprising of several reusable interior sections.

Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and a prop as await their turn before the camera as the Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond and the TARDISWith a new TARDIS exterior prop currently in use, it wasn’t going to be long before rumours of the new interior of the Doctor’s time machine surfaced – the TARDIS interior has changed constantly over Doctor Who’s 46 year history from the stark futurist white of the Hartnell era to the mahogany Victoriana chic of the Paul McGann TV Movie.

Various classic and modern elements are mixed in the new Moffat-era TARDIS if this rumour is to be believed, with a dual level console room, a lab, sitting room and more with set components designed to be modular to enable reuse as other parts of the ship (and possibly by extension to allow a greater range of camera angles)

Meanwhile the famous roundels are apparently retained as “inverted hemispheres” with differing colour schemes for each room of the TARDIS.

Confirmation of this detail is of course a long way off for now, so there’s no reason why the speculation shouldn’t continue…
