How so? It's still there. I'm not quite sure what actually moves in tbe column this time (I think it's just the central bit with two crystalish doodads that rise and descend to meet in the middle, and six lit columns not moving at all) but it's arguably the most detailed of the central columns in the new series so far. The previous central columns were simple plastic tubes and a blown glass sex aid with shiny bits around it; the latest edition has both oscilating and rotating parts including the carousel. Pretty cool IMO.

I miss the uppy downy Rotor and don't want the magic roundabout to be the notice that "we're time traveling now". Since it's on the ceiling the camera will have to pan up or have a quick shot of it. The moving Rotor in the background is central and less emphasis needs to be placed on it. Doesn't look like the new one moves but we'll know more in the new year.

The new control room is alright but I think it looks small. For the first time, the TARDIS seems to be just marginally bigger on the inside.

Seems like you can fit at least three or four police boxes in there.
Yes, instead of the usual twelve.

The central crystal section moves, since we see it retract up into the top of the rotor in the episode.

Although he didn't really do any actual time travel in this episode, just place to place travel - so maybe it only does more uppy downy stuff when he's actually time traveling

It seems to be about the same size, except the layout is different (the console being closer to the outer doors instead of the inner one and no longer showing the empty--and hardly ever used--area underneath the console).

Re: First glimpse of new TARDIS control room!

It does seem the same size, but there is decidedly less open floorspace - they are using more of the space they have, but for balconies and whatever's on the lower level.

The 11.1 set could fit the actual police box prop in with ease; I'm pretty sure this one can as well, but with less elbow room around it (the smaller set from "Logopolis" et.al. were big enough to house a police box as well). The 9/10 set could hold a whole other console room in it, albeit a very small one that was only marginally larger than a poice box; the 9/10 set has barely enough level floor space anyway as the space around the central dias isn't really meant for people walking around.

The 11.2 set has both upper and lower levels, and I'm hoping that the lower level has some fun stuff we haven't seen yet in a console room. We got to know the 11.1 set fairly well, albeit mostly from the same angles; now that this set can have much more dynamic shots, I'm hopign they will use its strengths to show us much more of it.
