Re: First glimpse of new TARDIS control room!

The new Christmas short, "Songtaran Carols," which is Strax the Sontaran "singing" Christmas carols, appears to have been filmed on the new TARDIS set -- you can see the roundel-like hexagons behind him.

Re: First glimpse of new TARDIS control room!

Okay, that was really funny.

And yes, it's the console room. The clip shows that upder normal operation, the upper lights will be regularly blinking. And it seems to have been shot against the right wall in the earlier picture, as you can just see the railing of the stairs leading up on the left of the shot just as it fades out.

Yay, overanalysis! Four days till we see the new Sexy!

Re: First glimpse of new TARDIS control room!

Yep! That was definitely a mood lifter. Of course, now someone has to point out that those weren't exactly Victorian-era Christmas carols, but this is a show about a time traveller, so it won't be me!

...

Oh drat.

Strax isn't Victorian either - he's from the future...

Here's a clip of Clara entering the TARDIS.

Personally, I'm sold. This is an excellent console room that clearly means business.

Truly a thing of beauty.

I still want to know what's down those steps.

I think that in the trailer for the upcoming season we saw it at rest.

Re: First glimpse of new TARDIS control room!

Is the spinning carousel thing a practical effect? When Vastra looked up at it, it almost looked a bit too CG-ish.

Re: First glimpse of new TARDIS control room!

I'm thinking the carousel thing probably happens when he "powers up" (like in the clip), during materialisation & de-materialisation.

Hopefully it stays still the rest of the time....it's cool, but quite distracting.

"It's smaller on the outside". Jenna is completely adorable.

Re: First glimpse of new TARDIS control room!

I don't know, I kinda like the carousel. I kinda hope its just full of gears and clockwork inside.

You know come to think of it, since the Doc isn't travelling much, I'm surprised the console room didn't have more furniture, bookshelves and such scattered around. Like Eights.

Re: First glimpse of new TARDIS control room!

Well I wouldn't expect to see the Doctor's old clothes just laying and stacks of books with the last pages torn out. But there are other rooms in the Tardis, who knows what they look like at this point.

Although what I'm... curious about, he was WAY too eager to give Clara a key to the Tardis. I mean really. She walks in and he's already giving her a key. I would suspect Modern Clara would be like "Oi! That's a bit quick. We haven't even had a proper date and you're already asking me to move in with you?"

Buuut methinks the good Doctor hasn't gotten any in a while and well Clara is awfully cute and clearly into him.

Re: First glimpse of new TARDIS control room!

That's pretty much it. He does recognize a good companion when he sees her. She's up for adventure, he can offer it. Voila!

Also, a pic in the new DWM shows what the new set looks like from the outside, and it is indeed a full 360-degree construct with removable wall sections so theu can shoot from every direction - at last! You can see that while the overall diameter seems to be slightly smaller than the 9/10 room, the central dias where most of the action happens is about the same size in all three modern configurations. With the upper and lower levels fully accesible, there is at least as much useable area as in the previous set, and better options to shoot it with the removable wall sections. It's grown on me fast, this one. B-)
