Quote from: Tony Farrell on Jan 28, 2020, 01:06 amSorry to disagree Kingpin but, this isn't a re-purposed "Hell Bent" interior but rather appears to have been constructed from elements retained from both "An Adventure in Space and Time" and "Twice Upon A Time". In Hell Bent the roundels were too small resulting in the doors being too short for Peter Capaldi to walk through. Here the roundels are the 'correct' diameter and are 'correctly' spaced in a close-knit honeycomb pattern. Whilst the screen shots aren't particularly clear, the PVC roundel backings in some of the walls appear to have the stepped "bucket" detailing (characteristic of both the original Brachacki set and the homage from An Adventure In Space and Time), others appear to have flat roundel backings (characteristic of both the 1966 Tardis interior and it's re-interpretation in Twice Upon A Time). Furthermore, if Simon83's renders are correct, then there are two sets of main/zig-zag doors present - one set presumably from AAIS&T and the other from Twice (N.B., the AAIS&T walls were - like the console - retained by Cardiff's Dr Who Experience and clearly the console is still in storage so, why not the walls?).From what I can see, the hexagonal ceiling unit too bears a much closer resemblance to the one from "Twice" than the one from "Hell Bent". This unit may, too, have been retained.....So, these are the elements that I think have been re-used and - briefly - where I think they have come from.I think it's also worth mentioning the lighting - I liked the 'in-flight' effect of alternating how the the roundels were lit i.e., either from the front or from behind (that lighting effect put me in mind of the Tardis' first take-off as seen in the 1963 Pilot Episode). All in all, I actually quite like this version of the Tardis interior. T
