    Great, so sci-fi looking, and modern! I love the time rotor, the neon pipes look great! Do you like it booboo?

    what makes you think it has to be destroyed. It could just be redecoration

    I like it but I dread to think what they are going to do to destroy the old console room 😀

    I like it, it gives off a classic Who vibe, I do wish they’d carried on the lower part of the wall all the way to the top though. Otherwise it seems very ‘filmic’ and I look forward to hearing the revamped them tune and titles to.

    I see a new think every second, changing my opinion! I’ve just noticed the screens in the time rotor and the circley thing on the console. And the weird pipes or rails, whatever they are… I am genuinely not sure whether I love it, or whether I think it’s like our local hospital: clinical yet not very clean.

    Not sure… sometimes, when I look at it I think that it’s great that they’re going back to the classic series designs a bit whilst still being so much more impressive. But other times, I look at it and think that the back wall is ugly, and that the side console along the wall is going too Star Trekky. Then, I think that it is amazing and that the design is fantastic and so very TARDISsy.
    All I do know is that it is definitely going to be a divider of opinions, with some people seeing it as faithful to the past and others seeing it as a step back…

    I dont think so. Matt smith was on ‘This Morning’ and he said that he was given the ‘Type 40’ plaque from the console, and the coat stand, and that they are now in his flat. LOL

    Maybe this room is a secondary control room, and they’ll go back to the normal Tardis after Series 7 Part 2?

    although the only thing that worries me is that if someone goes to the doctor who experince it the tardis bit were you fly it. it would feel outdated.

    I am really gonna miss the old one though. Still, reminds me of Paul Mcgaan’s one:)

    It looks alright, they’ve definetely made it seem more alien and more like a machine like Steven Moffat inteneded. It’s quite nice that they’re looking back to the classic Doctor Who. I don’t really like that they’ve went back to small again, I loved the massive size od the interior before, that verion of the Tardis was the only one worthy for the saying “it’s bigger on the inside”; the other Tardises would only desreve “it’s big on the inside”. I loved the previous Tardis and how had tons of stairs that leaded away from the main console that seemed to lead to anyware and how the Tardis controles look like human tools is really clever and give that magical sense that Doctor Who does well at but doen’t spoil the show.They could have just adapted the previous interior, changed some of the colours or something but not change it too much. I’m hoping, that because you could clearly see some stairs at the back leading to underneath the console, that we get to see whats under it regulary and it looks like what i think it will, then it may be actually quite good.

    Crazy guy i thing the thing you call a stand is what makes the console stand up

    very posh

    i think it looks great and like the classic tardis

    this tardis is great, i hated the idea of it being made of junk because it’s an alien spaceship and it shouldn’t have typewriters on it. i’m starting to like steven moffat now.

    I like this tardis. It looks like a mix of Hartnell’s Lab style interior, Mcgann’s console and a Matt Smith sized console room.

    not very good but i think it will be really good in the real episodes

  • The someone from somwhere

    December 19th, 2012 - 4:07pm

    I like this tardis. It’s like a mixture of William Hartnell’s Classic console room, paul mcgann’s console and time roter and matt smith’s sized tardis console room.

    It’s possible then that it might be the lights inside the new Time Rotor just reflecting inside the glass tube.

    But if it is water then that’s something we’ve never seen before when it comes to designing a new Tardis console, but also, not really safe to do so either since water + electrical equipment = ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !!!!!!!!!!! [Electric Shock].

    Looks like bad CGI in the photo

  • crazy guy

    December 19th, 2012 - 3:52pm

    i doubt it as you can see a stand thing at the bottom

    Though I don’t like the roundels 🙂

    Its interesting, as I feel like the BBC have tried to make the Doctor change everything about himself, costume, companion, Tardis.. like he’s a different person. Like he has regenerated. However I do not doubt the BBC as every time I have so Doctor Who has only got better!

  • doctorwhoone

    Is it just me, or does the new look Time Rotor look like it’s been filled up with water ?.

    I doubt it off course, but it looks that way.

    I wonder also of the new console is being suspended above the floor by being fixed to the Time Rotor itself ? like it would have been if a new Tardis interior designed by Mike Tucker had been in use during the early 1990’s had the show continued into that decade which would have seen the console suspended off the ground. That’s probably why Matt is standing in front of it so that we won’t notice until broadcast of the Snowmen.
