I'm sure I didn't see that guy in the gunfighters, have to have another look...

What absolutely love about this pic, though,  is the way Billy is explaining things to the cowboy, just as if it's all real!

You can really hear him saying, "That's the scanner switch...That's the dematerialisation lever....That's the door control....over there is picture messaging...."

Priceless!!!!!!!!!

All the picture needs is a chair with a panda on it.... "Sheer poetry, dear boy."   :)

The guy's definitely not from The Gunfighters, he's a bit too OTT even for that story.  All the characters have a good laugh at Steven's 'Hollywood cowboy' outfit in episode one.  

I'd put money on this being from Feast of Steven.  Good if it is because we have so few pictures of incidental characters from that episode.

The caricature of an old west cowboy... will they ever live it down? ;D

As one who was raised in The Bronx, NY, and heard all of the various accents of New York City's different boroughs: Bronx accent (Telly Savalas from 'Kojak'), Brooklyn accent (Jimmy Durante), Manhattan accent (Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis), etc., I still get that "Oh, jeez!" reaction at the caricature of a "New Yorker" in the Empire State Building tour guide from that same scene. (Never heard a New York City accent like that before!)

But like Russell and Kert said, just looking at that photo I can hear William Hartnell speaking as they described... :)

Gunfighters is a story seldom watched by me, much like a flying DeLorean in 2015, there's something very familiar about all this... :D

Doc: Marty, you're gonna have to do something about those clothes. You walk around town dressed like that and you're liable to get shot.

Marty: Or hanged.

Doc: What idiot dressed you in that outfit?

Marty: You did.

It is a Feast of Steven photo - there were quite a few taken that day. Some shot of Jean Marsh as Sara Kingdom posing against the console.

I checked with Richard Bignell and according to him when "it first appeared in DWM449, it was identified as being from The Feast of Steven."  :)

Thanks for the confirmation, fellas.  :)

A few more pictures from Daleks Master Plan which Si Hodges and Stuart Humphryes have been kind enough to allow me to share:

masterplan10.jpgmasterplan11.jpgmasterplan12.jpgmasterplan13.jpgmasterplan14.jpgmasterplan15.jpgmasterplan16.jpgmasterplan17.jpgmasterplan19.jpgmasterplan20.jpg

(Out of interest, for non-UK members - and for those who may not know - Stuart Humphryes also goes by the 'name' Babelcolour and was responsible for the colourisation of episode one of "The Mind of Evil". An example of his work can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riML7zVMaqo )

I'm not sure who 'owns' the picture watermarked "REX" but have posted it for information purposes only. And, though not directly Tardis related, here is one of the very few colour pictures from "Master Plan":

(The red object is the "Time Destructor" and consists of several circular hoops surrounding some red plastic beakers!)

Wow Tony, those pictures! Never seen any colour pics from Masterplan before.

As well as Jean Marsh being a good actress, I think Sara Kingdom was a character with great potential and should have stayed longer.

I know that there are a couple in colour from "Master Plan" but tracking them down is 'problematic' to say the least (let alone getting permission to share them)!

Marc, you are correct about the right hand picture - it is by Chris. I didn't know this but, I've been in touch with him and he's said he'll try and dig out the full picture for us (which is really nice of him).

The best picture I can find of the Time Destructor is this:

destructor.png (Genuine - not colourised.)

Bringing this thread back on topic, these pictures of the Tardis interior have been shared here (and elsewhere) before but have previously been credited as being from The Celestial Toymaker:

toy1.jpghart_zpsbc3ab4e0.jpg

However, in conversation with The Radio Times' Patrick Mulkern via Twitter, it seems they do - in fact - originate from "Galaxy Four".

A lower definition version of this picture (which is contained on the Keys to Marinus DVD) has been shared here before but - thanks to Richard Bignell - here is a better version:

Marinus_1 (2).png

(The picture has been slightly brightened to show the colour of the Tardis's 3D walls - a very pale green!) It therefore seems that when the original 'bucket' roundel mouldings were replaced, the Tardis' 3D walls were repainted in off-white/pale grey!

Please note that all pictures have been shared with permission and are shared for information purposes only. Where I have been sent a picture and asked not to share it, I have not done so: I have respected any such requests.

The only exceptions to such requests are if I have subsequently received the same picture(s) from another person; only in such circumstances have I felt able to share the image(s). I believe that this approach is both honest, fair and respectful of any original request for confidentiality.

Always thought the walls from The Time Meddler+ were a beige colour...118962.jpgCw4-ssVXUAAA7cC.jpgelib_2194083.jpgtumblr_nbisf1Ne1K1rjiwrto1_1280.jpgCxF4ityWIAABz7z.jpg

From the images you've posted, you can see that the walls seem to vary in colour across the photos.

These photos were all taken on the same day and within minutes of each other. So, the walls can't be changing colour. Any perceived difference is therefore much more likely to be due to the film stock/exposure/reproduction.

In addition, the Tardis' walls were actually cut down in height at some point in early 1966 (you can see the uppermost 'half' roundels are no longer semi-circular).

I assume but can't prove that this cutting down occurred at the same time the console was repaired with the metal trims (i.e., after the recording of The Celestial Toymaker but before Power of the Daleks). So, that's two refits that were undertaken - one to replace the bucket mouldings and a second to reduce the height of the walls. It's entirely possible that the walls were repainted on both these occasions.  :)

Have we had these two photos yet?

supposedly from Marco Polo
tardis_marco%20polo_zps3pozzhlv.jpg


and this one from Planet of Giants
tardis_planet%20of%20giants_zpsfypgf7i5.jpg


By the way - These photos were on a public forum. There was no indication that they were not to be shared and as soon as I saw them I knew they would be appreciated here. There was certainly no intention to step on anybody's toes or infringe copyright. I know the world of who owns images,  regardless of who took them, can be a particular mine field!
