Re: Adventures in Time and Space TARDIS set

^I didn't say they were made to be exact replicas. I said that, given the purpose they were built for, they would presumably have been made to look like low-budget '60s TV sets -- i.e. to give that impression to the audience watching An Adventure in Space and Time, regardless of their fidelity to the actual items. Set design is about creating an impression for the audience. These sets are designed to convince the audience that they were built in 1963 for a low-budget TV production shot in a tiny, antiquated studio. So the design requirements are distinctly different from those for sets designed to convince the audience watching a modern, high-definition production that they're real futuristic or alien locations. Thus, I don't find it credible that they would use the same sets for two such incompatible purposes.
