Re: YOUR Favorite TARDIS Corridors!

I loved the wooden control room myself. That should have been Hartnell's all along.

I like the latest one and the Hinchcliffe era about equally, although the Terry Gilliam/Brazil look of the Eccleston/Tennant era control rooms really fit Matt's doctor better.

Some interesting retro tech here that fits the mood

I just love the look of obsolete equipment. The dials, toggles slides, levers, etc. All lend an air of importance. Hearing the chatter of typewriters--that is what made All The President's Men so wonderful--the sounds.
