Doctor Who News An Adventure In Space and Time

See the First Doctor’s TARDIS Console Constructed!

We’ve already told you how the replica of the original TARDIS console is moving to the Doctor Who Experience this summer, fresh from an appearance at Paris Comic Con and its starring role in Mark Gatiss’ 50th anniversary biopic An Adventure in Space and Time – and below you can see just how the beautiful rebuild was put together, complete with time rotor and roundel-heavy console room!

I don’t know about you, but I REALLY want to touch it. I wonder how many people will attempt to climb over those rails?

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, its a testament to the resourcefulness and ingenuity of the original designer(s) that they took a miniscule budget and a limited timescale and built a set that actually looks like it could move through time. The roundels on the walls are sadly missing from todays TARDIS console room and are a unique design feature.
    I have a photo of myself in the Davison console room when it was on display at the Longleat convention in 83. It was a genuine thrill to stand by such an iconic set and considering there several console rooms on display then its time for Vortexter to make the pilgrimage to Cardiff and pay homage to the old girl.
    Do I want to play on it? More than I’ll ever admit to.
