Ooohhh... I do hope so, I'm at the Regenerations convention in Swansea in September, and I'm planning to stop by the Cardiff Experience on the Monday afterwards, if it's there it's going to be the icing on the cake :)

I think it might be there already! Which, along with the tours of the current series TARDIS set that they are offereing really does mean that TARDIS-wise we're rather spoilt this summer  :)

I asked the Doctor Who Experience on August 1st

- Will the Experience also include the original 1963 console recreation and TARDIS interior?

Reply

- Graham - Yes - very soon. We don't have a date yet but watch our website or sign up to our newsletter.

Ladies and Gents, the recreation of the Original TARDIS console room is now up at the experience.  They even have a time lapse video of the assembly.  It's near the 5 Doctors Console room.

Lovely!

Although, I see they moved the TYJ at the beginning of the video, so I expect Timerotor will be getting another call from the BBC: "We've broken it again"

Mark

Looks as though the rotor doesn't move up and down, only round and round, unless this is a simplified version just for the experience?

Also wasn't it the whole of the inside of the rotor that spun originally, not just the inside of the inside if you know what I am trying to explain? Not complaining, just curious.

It does looks like the inner part rotates and the outer is stationary.

I agree Bill, it's only the core that rotates the strip-light supports are stationary.
The time-lapse video gives us some interesting pictures of how the set for AST was constructed: Whereas the backs of the original walls appear to have been built from hexagonal frames surrounding the roundel 'tubes'

the AST version is a circular collar arrangement

Oh I see they changed the Matt Smith statue's clothes to be like they are now, with the purple frock and vest.

ah yes. The video clip I watched made it look like the whole of the innards moved, maybe reflections of the lights flashing. Any way, thanks for the better clip to clear that up Bill.

Understandable, but it's a shame they don't have room for the rest of the set - just hope it's all being looked after somewhere.  I really like the eight-columned roundel wall.

They could always have stored it at my house. I'd have gladly knocked out a few walls to accommodate this recreated thing of beauty! ;D (Ah, wait... according to Tony's measurements of the original Hartnell console room, I'd have to knock out all of my internal walls to squeeze this in. Darn! >:( :P)

So, all of time and space, everything that ever happened or ever will, where do you want to start?

As you can see from this screen grab the console comes in two halves just like Celation idea :D

I wonder if they did that to make it easy to transport after it was done being used as a set. That would make sense to me.

Correct - The flats had to be split to fit into the 13.5 ton lorry going to Paris...the seams won't be there in AST.

The mechanism used in AST to move the time rotor up and down was not included with the prop acquired by DWE - it will be moving in AST. As for the DWE exhibit...we'll have to wait and see - it may spring into life at some point in the future.
