If anyone has any caps, I've also seen it recently, rewatching season 15...

Leela "We haven't been in here before..."
Doctor "YOU haven't been in here before"

The only screencaps I can find don't show the chair but they do show another piece of furniture from Season 14's wooden console room...

One of the arms falls off that hatstand when the TARDIS takes a tumble in the vortex (if you look carefully, you can see some string pulling it over!!)

Anywho, back to the chair... If anyone has any *cough* digital versions of season 15, some caps could nice to see :)

After seeing this, I did some googling, and found this copy of the knossos chair:

Curiouser and curiouser. Inspired by this successful googling, I've found that there's also one at the International Court of Justice in the Hague.

terrific research, guys. Now if anyone is in oxford and could go measure that chair if possible - that'd be great. I wonder how difficult it would be to make one? Or maybe get a chippie to put one together. Its a lovely piece of furniture.

As for Davison's hatstand - why is it bent?

Those kinds of hatstands are often several bits bolted together by threaded rods. Its easy for the rods to bend, or not to be screwed together properly...

Or the other answer is, this is Doctor Who... lots of the props got bent, quite often! See Tom and the Sonic Screwdriver... :)

Well yet another long reaching thread that I decided to have a go at. The OP had mentioned the Minos Throne Chair. Well I rather liked the looks of it too so I thought i would see what could be made of it.

TARDIS Chair - Minos Throne Blueprints - Rev A

Sadly I think I sort of got it terribly wrong. Those ancient designers really liked the odd ball curves and ellipses. I wouldn't be surprised if the guy was using the shadow of the sun against a mountain outcropping to make this one.

Either way its serviceable enough I think for someone to use as a stepping stone of sorts.

Enjoy.

Hi,

I'm a Bronze Age Mediterranean archaeologist, so I've always been quite fond of this chair. It also means I have easy access to excavation reports. Enjoy:
