    Doctor Who is about change , just like life itself 🙂

    Like I said to you over on the ‘Revamped Theme Tune and Opening Title Sequance’, Matt is not leaving at all, he said he is staying throughout 2013 so may leave either in 2014 or 2015 or a little later after the next 3 years.

    Blimey just cos the console rooms changed you make this assumption that a new Doctor’s suddenly gonna arrive. Tom Baker had like 2 or 3 different consoles during his 7 years and he never got replaced whenever a new console room suddenly made an appearance.

    Just cos you see a new console room does not mean it has to suit a new incarnation of the Doctor. Doctors 5,6 and 7 used the 1983 version for the rest of the 1980’s while 9 and 10 shared the same one for the rest of the 2000’s.

    I think saying that the new intro, new theme and new Tardis console room is gearing up for the 50th is a good cover story while the truth is right under our nose, sneaky 12th doctor………

    Very nice Console Room. Like how it reflects the Doctor’s current mood: a lonely old man who’s turning his back on the universe. Also, the Time Rotor looks very similar to the one in the Silence ship. Hmmm…

    I must admit, I do prefer the previous design, but I’m willing to see this one in action before I properly judge it. Something I think some others need to do. 😛

    and look at the boring floor! the other one was so interesting! no no no!


    December 20th, 2012 - 10:38pm

    The TARDIS – EXACTLY !! 😀

    When Val Decem was first heard as the 10th Doctor was walking in agony back to the Tardis, how many of us fan’s where reduced to tears ?. I was 21 at the time, and that song had me crying for good knows how long after ‘the End of Time part 2’ was broadcast, proving that Murray is a man who can produce moving, emotion driven music.

    How many of us clapped our hands listening to song of freedom for the first time while the Tardis pulled our planet back into it’s proper place in the universe ? . . . . I DID, it make me feel very happy to clap and cheer at such an awesome piece of music.

    I hope Murry NEVER retires.

    Check out ‘Doctor Who Fan-Orchestra’ on YouTube, they are brilliant at performing his songs 😉

    What’s Murray Gold ever done wrong? His soundtracks for the episodes are brilliant!

  • doctorwhoone

    Hey, lay off Murry Gold, the man is a musical genius !! 😀

    His produced so many of my favorite songs for the revived series.

    Roses Theme
    Gallifrey, our childhood, our home
    Val Decem
    The dark and endless Dalek night
    Song for Ten
    Songs of captivity and freedom
    Song of freedom
    The Doctor forever

    I could go on . . . . .

    I love the new console room. Absolutely love it!!
    As for the new theme music, would it be too much for me to hope and pray to god that it’s not done by Murray Gold. I’m sorry, but this guy just doesn’t understand Doctor Who. When are we going to get a new composer??

    how do those statistics even make sense

    some how that picture looks like it has been tweaked somehow


    December 20th, 2012 - 10:06am

    A little too much like the classic interior. Which I like in those episodes but some how doesn’t fit for now. Will have to see how it plays out in the series.

  • doctorwhoone

    I wonder if that second control panel on the left hand side of the picture is a new version of the Fault Locator from ‘The Edge of Destruction’.

    Having read so many comments on this site and other sites talking about this new console room, it seems 100% of fan’s like me like it, 50% are unsure, and 10 or 20% simply hate it.

    Well, you can’t please everyone 🙂

    It has been redecorated cos the past one reminds the Doctor of Amy and Rory too much, echoing memories of events inside the Tardis of being with them in the previous version from series 5,6 and the first half of series 7.

    I think the metal parts that hold the cylinders in position slide up and down them.

    What I mean is, the bottom metal parts slide up, while at the same time, the top metal parts slide down, so that they briefly hide the cylinders for a split second, if that’s makes any sense.

    Thanks doctorwhoone! 😀 I managed to find a link to it.

    More it changes but I do like it. I liked all the previous TARDIS interior. Only if my room or house had this. But rather have it in Big Motor home or maybe old bus which you convert into a Motorhome that be best.

    I love this new room.
    I really missed the classic console room.
    I loved the 2005 room, I liked the 2010 room slightly less but this is better than both

    Has a cool look,but cold too like the 1980’s 4th/5th doctor era.
