So, that's four outings for the porch after the Pilot; Reign, Massacre, Toymaker and Tenth Planet. Any more?
Quote from: Tony Farrell on Dec 05, 2015, 01:15 pmLooking at the studio plan, there seem to have been (unusually) five cameras used and their positions (and direction of shot) are indicated by the letters (i.e., 1A, 1B, etc and little arrows). The cameras are shown as circles and the boom microphones are shown as rectangles.For the scenes set in the Tardis Control Room, boom microphone 'C' is shown near the console and cameras 1 (position G), 2(E), 3(G) and 5(B) are all pointing at various points within the Tardis Control Room. From the little arrows, both cameras 1 and 5 would be able to 'see' the Tardis doors from their respective positions.Obviously without the camera shooting script, this is speculation, but, given the change in sound quality when Ben and Polly bang on the Tardis (Police Box Porch) doors and that the interior of these doors would be visible from both camera positions 1(G) and 5(B), I wonder if the companions' entrance scene was 'filmed' from inside the Tardis and we see the porch doors being used? As an aside, this would give William Hartnell's reign as the Doctor a nice symmetry with regards the use of the duplicate Police Box doors (being used for both his first and final regular appearances as the Doctor)!T
