Re: DW Series 7 Returns!!...with "The Bells of St John"

At least one console room doesn't even HAVE one, that being the somehow-fan-favorite wooden room from the Tom Baker years. It might be cosmetic in the same way as the blinking, flashing or shimmering lights on the matter-antimatter reaction chamber in Engineering on any given Starfleet ship tends to be a visual indicator of how much work the ship is putting into going places.

In this new edition, only the middle section of the transparent column moves when the TARDIS first gets going (it does this in The Snowmen as well) but otherwise it's up to the spinning rings above to tell us that we're in flight. That and the variably-convincing shaking around the actors do.
