In the cities in the streets there's a tension you can feel,
The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.
Politicians gamble and lie to save their skins,
And the press get fed the scapegoats,
Public Enema Number One.

The first to appear is the less ornate chair, here is a grab of it from An Unearthly Child just after Barbara has passed out on it.
vlcsnap-0416-07-24-01h32m08s707.png

And one from "The Cave of Skulls" (episode 2)showing (the back of) the more ornate chair for the first time - the quality is poor.
vlcsnap-8691-05-11-21h12m28s448.png

Also from "The Firemaker" (episode 4) we see the more ornate one again  - the quality is poor.
vlcsnap-2065-12-18-06h42m22s610.png

From now on, I will refer to the less ornate as the Mk. 1 and the more ornate as the Mk. 2.

The distinguishing features are.






Mk.1

  • Rounded tops on the rear uprights

  • Wedged fronts on the armrests

  • Ornate leg supports



Mk.2

  • Ornate tops on the rear up rights

  • Rounded fronts on the armrests

  • straight leg supports

Planet of Giants:

In Episode1 (Planet of Giants) we appear to see rounded fonts on the armrests:
vlcsnap-2892-11-24-02h33m22s600.png

But a few moments later it seems to be the less ornate MK. 1. It probably is the Mk.1 but that first screengrab is confusing:

vlcsnap-1775-11-23-05h24m04s301.png

In Episode 3 (Crisis), it's very clearly the Mk. 1 again:

A rather nice shot of the Mk. 2. Taken from the recon of Galaxy 4 (episode 1)... No idea where the original image came from before it was photoshopped, though.

Nice detail on the Mk. 2 front crossbar :)

This image shows (just about) the Mk. 2 in The Daleks' Master Plan.
