OK.  I gotta put on my moderator hat for a bit and remind everyone that this is a forum for discussing Dr. Who props and how to build them as well as showcasing Dr. Who props that you have built--to include virtual props.  Whether you like an actor, the direction the show is going, ...really, even your pet theories about the Dr. Who universe or what you'd like to see on the show do not belong here.  I've heard Outpost Gallifrey recommended as a better place for this sort of discussion, but that mainly looks to be a site for news about the show these days. 

I hate to be a killjoy, but the character/storyline that you dislike may happen to be someone else's absolute favorite.  Believe it or not, my buddy from college absolutely LOVES the Chibnall run of the show.  I spent a week this fall, helping him recover from hip surgery.  When I got back to my home and he was feeling better he was like "Oh.  We should've watched some of the new Dr. Who while you were here."  And I was like "Oh, darn.  Too bad we didn't think of that at the time."  ;)

Gallifrey Base replaced Outpost Gallifrey's forum in 2009.

This made me lose total interest in Doctor Who and finishing my TARDIS and i don't expect it will be any better with egomaniac RTD back.

I hate this box. I hate the people that made it. Garbage.


Okay, well, you can stop watching if you want, that was always allowed 🤷

Without getting too far off track (per Volpone's request), the TARDIS prop is hardly the worst thing from the Chibnell era (a few detail choices aside, it's easily the best Police Box prop the New Who era has produced so-far).

It's a decent, solid-looking construction, has reasonably effective illumination in the windows to suggest there's an interior, likewise has a decent effort on the window frames which have historically been rather skimped on, and it's clear from the final product that the production team did a sufficient job on their brief... They're not responsible for the quality of the show's writing.
