The Plaque

Earlier in this thread there is a link to a short video tour of the new Console Room set, and there was mention made of a brass plaque with the TARDIS make and model on it. Apparently this was part of the previous console room, on the floor somewhere, and was rather worn. So they made a new one which is now mounted on one of the leather pads on the side of the new 2010 console and you can see it in several pics.

I've looked through every picture in this thread and all of its links, and even done some web searching (because I'm as curious as a cat - maybe even ore so - when it comes to detaily things like this), but so far I haven't been able to find a decent close-up pic of that plaque so see exactly what it says on it. (Yes; if curiosity killed the cat I'd be dead dozens of times over by now.)

Has anyone found a pic of the plaque up close, or have any insider info on what it says?

Please don't take this the wrong way, Deck, but...
I could just about hug you right now!

You are good! Where in the multiverse did you find that?

I believe it was posted by a fellow who snapped it during a set tour.  It's the clearest picture I've seen.  The one in the screenshot from Amy's Choice has identical wording.

Can anyone make out the fine print on the bottom two lines. I can read most of it, but some of it is a bit hard to read.

The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.

Why is it in English and not Gallifreyan?

Same reason the Doctor speaks English, and not Gallifreyan.

I thought that The Doctor said to Rose in The End of the World that he WAS speaking Gallifreyan but the translation circuits makes it sound like English.

Indeed.  Point being, the television show is in English for the benefit of the viewing audience, who might conceivably have some trouble understanding an imaginary language.
