I received a comment on a YouTube video I made entitled "Making Another Compressor. I was asked to make the Spyfall shrinking device.
Can anyone make a Thread on this prop?

Cardinal Hordriss

The new one looks to be based on an old Ever Ready bull's eye torch with the finger ring from River's sonic stuck to the side.

On Sachas Instagram page there a great shot of him holding it and his purple 'Joker' like outfit but I couldn't get a decent shot of it.

A nice publicity shot of Sacha holding the MK3 Tissue Compression Eliminator:

A few more shots I managed to snag:

I'll see if there's any decent screengrabs from the episode's upload on iPlayer, if there are I'll add them to this thread.

At a guess, based on Cardinal Hordriss's keen suggestion, the prop's probably not made from a genuine Bull's Eye Torch, but is heavily influenced by one, with added victorian styling for good measure.

Amazing work but would we call this the mk3? As I'm sure in Logopolis is slightly different it ridges or something along the side

why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

From what I can get from these pic's. This is the closes I can figure, at the moment, to what this device looks like.
Until someone finds diagrams, or this device is used again in a later episode. What do you think?

Reminds of the main part/body of a vaping device.

Please remove this image if there is any problem but the more I think of it it reminds me of an ecig device.Screenshot_20200111_230349_com.android.chrome.jpg Vintage looking and very similar in style.

Did anyone else think of Dumbledore's Deluminator from Harry Potter when they first saw this prop on screen?

Thought I'd ask the designer, Darren Fereday, for more info as he's quite responsive to tweets, and here's his response... [On the basis of previous tweets around his other DW props, I'd say it was probably a mixture of 3D printed and laser-cut components]
