Quote from: Senseidale on Nov 26, 2013, 11:08 pmThere are some interesting observations but is there a reason the box had no handles ?or did they just forget

Quote from: galacticprobe on Nov 27, 2013, 06:13 amThey didn't forget, Dale. They were actually being true to the original Brachacki/Hartnell TARDIS prop. That one didn't have any handles on it either. I think it did when they made that pilot episode, but when they "dirtied up" the prop for re-filming that first episode and then the series' run, they didn't put the handles back on. So for all of the Hartnell years the prop had no door handles. Even into the Troughton era there were still no door handles.The prop finally got door handles in the late Troughton era, starting with "The Invasion". Since then the door handles have been changing sizes, colors, and locations: large silver handles, smaller brass ones, blue-painted brass, etc.; positioned on the right side of the PTO door, on the left, no handle on the PTO door, the main door handle at times being on the center divide rather than on the door.Dino.
