    Love seeing the older TARDIS interior again, and how the door mechanism just magically changes from the inside and outside. I'm sure they used the stuff they cobbled together in "Hell Bent" with some custom pieces. We've already seen in one of the studio pictures that a wall of this TARDIS is strangely identical to a wall in the museum from "Day of The Doctor"...

    Wasn't that console the one from An Adventure In Space And Time, which then went on to the DW Experience? I think it was repainted.

    I dunno about repainted... I do know that it was missing from said Experience when I was in Cardiff in 2015, on account of it being used for the filming of "Hell Bent". :P

    But it makes perfect sense that at least some of the elements used in AAISAT were re-used in Hell Bent and now here. Not all the wall segments from the historical though, photographic blow-ups of the round things barely flew when and certainly would not pass muster in hi-definition...

    I noticed that. One of the walls has the hexagonal roundel pattern seen in the curator scene from the 50th. Its in the online reviews of the special. You can also see it in the trailers set in Hartnell's TARDIS.

    The one in AITS was greenish, hence the "repainted" question.

    Aye, the original was green because white would cause the camera image to flare (IIRC) and it looked the same in B&W anyway. So in Adventure it's true to real life and the repaint for season 9 and this is true to how its meant to look in-fiction.

    The Day of the Doctor reused hexagonal roundels wall looks to be replacing the wall that was just a photograph of a packet of paracetamol, so that's a fair change.
