QuoteOk - here's another theory:See this image of the Other Doctor's set, and note how on the right there's a bigger gap at the top of the roundels, than there is on the left. Yet the ceiling panels seem to match -- so it must be that the walls don't quite match.In the episode, we can clearly see that the wall on the right has big double doors - but the join in the doors is off-centre. (I can't do screen grabs at the moment, but it's visible behind Jodie, in the scenes where they discuss the sonic screwdriver).Now check out the Doorway Wall from An Adventure in Space and Time:https://duckduckgo.com/?q=an+adventure+in+time+and+space&t=osx&iax=images&ia=images&iai=http%3A%2F%2F1.bp.blogspot.com%2F-SAmKkAfums0%2FUdVeUrLDB_I%2FAAAAAAAAefQ%2FgIOu7aeEkA8%2Fs1600%2Ftardis21.JPG]See how the join between the doors is off-centre. But in Twice Upon a Time, the join was correctly centred.SO: In the first photo above, the Roundel Wall on the right comes from An Adventure in Space and Time.So now, I'm sure that the Doorway Wall on the left is the one we built for Twice Upon a Time, for three reasons:1: When we were prepping Twice, we did look into borrowing the Adventure walls, from the Dr Who Experience -- but in the end it would have been more work to remove them from the exhibition, than to make new ones. However, before that was decided, I measured them up -- and discovered that the roundels were an inch smaller than the original ones shown on the 1963 blueprints. When we built the Twice walls, we followed those blueprints faithfully -- so that's why the Roundels on the left go up higher in this photo.2: Meanwhile, the Adventure's roundels had vacuum-formed rears, with a 3-D step back in the middle (like the Hartnell originals), but for Twice we cheated, and just had flat perspex disks, with a routed groove, to imply the step-back. In this photo, the backlit roundels on the right have a shadow which suggests the Adventure's 3-D rears, while the ones on the left look flat, as in Twice.3: On the 1963 blueprints, the gap between the door's roundels and those on the adjacent wall, is slightly wider than the gap between neighbouring (non-door) roundels on the wall -- so that's what we did on the Twice Doors. But on Adventure they made the gap between roundels the same all over, including around the edge of the door. And that difference is also what we're seeing, between the left & right walls, on this photo of the Other Doctor's set.

QuoteI was the Art Dept Draftsman on Twice Upon a Time in 2017, so can tell you that by that stage the Hell Bent roundel walls no longer existed.... the Hell Bent doors were too small (less than 6ft tall, instead of the correct 7ft) because the team under-estimated the roundel-diameter -- so they had to avoid shots where Peter Capaldi bashed his head on the way in...When we were doing TUAT, Brian Minchin said, "You will get the doors the right size this time, won't you?" Luckily we were able to track down the original construction drawings from 1963, so this time the size was exactly right.

Quote from: Angelus Lupus on Jan 30, 2020, 03:57 pmI'm guessing you've seen some negative folks over there in the past? I joined there for season 11, because I wanted info on Jodie's costume. There are still folks who will take any opportunity to mention that they don't like her, but they are few, and easily ignored. What's been (pleasantly) surprising is the widespread support for Ruth!Doctor, both as a concept (a regeneration even the Doctor doesn't know?) and an actress. There's one or two stubborn voices who seem to have assumed that this somehow erases Hartnell as the first Doctor and are personally offended by that, but the vast majority are positive - nigh 80% of votes putting it at 8/10 or above
