Re: Adventures in Time and Space TARDIS set

^^ That's true. But, it does seem to be an obvious thing they could do. It is the anniversary which should harken back to the beginnings. It doesn't mean that they will do it. But, it would also help them get more bang for the buck for this set they've built.

Lots of obvious things are untrue. "Obvious" just means "reinforcing one's preconceptions." It doesn't bring one any closer to the objective truth, and can often lead one farther astray. So one should always distrust the obvious.

And, there's one particular episode in Series 7b that could be a perfect opportunity to use it in
If so, they would have to do pick-up filming next month, probably between Adventures wrapping and during the first days of the anniversary special filming, for the episode.

Some things can be obvious because it's the logical thing to do, and it would make many fans happy.

I think most people are just saying that it's possible to do this, and it would be cool. I don't think anyone is saying that it'll definitely happen.

Personally, I do think it would be very cool.

Re: Adventures in Time and Space TARDIS set

It looks great. I keep having to remind myself though that this is a show about people filming DW, and not the filiming of the show itself!

Which I suppose is the point, despite the obvious inaccuracies. I'm certain that this set will not be seen THAT much in this special; most of the action will be in the offices and environs of the BBC TV centre. Key episodes will be re-created for shooting here though aside from a momentary tribute I don't think anyone will expect them to be doind a shot-for shot remake in any sense.

Great that they can re use the sets for the anniversary episodes of the actual series
I doubt that. Presumably these are sets designed to look like low-budget sets constructed in the 1960s, and wouldn't have the level of detail necessary to be convincing as "real" TARDIS interiors or locations in a modern Doctor Who production.
Well..in that case...they could always use that set as a base and and the nessecary detail and stuff to make it convincing, right?

It's a joke, based on Doctor Who's 25th anniversary story being titled Silver Nemesis.

Maybe, if they had reason to. But it would require a lot of reworking, and probably a lot of expansion of the tiny sets we're seeing. My point is that one can't assume that the same unaltered sets could be used for both purposes, because each different purpose would come with a very different set of requirements.

Simply incredible. I can't wait for this production.

Looks fantastic. But do the walls shake properly when the actors walk too heavy?

Re: Adventures in Time and Space TARDIS set

Very nice! What a shame if it's never used in the modern Doctor Who series in some capacity. Looking forward to the documentary though!
