And I doubt it will be an easy process: just look how long the 'borrowed from Dixon of Dock Green' or 'cut down to fit the props lift' myths held out!

Hopefully the BBC's 30 year cycle of unlocking the archives can provide more invaluable nuggets of evidence like the cargo manifest.And yes, it would be fascinating to get Purple's take on this (I used to enjoy reading his site before it went private) and I hope this new info is taken in the spirit of increased historical accuracy.

Quote from: Tony Farrell on Sep 12, 2016, 01:08 pmOh goodness - I hope it won't take that long! Actually - if my Twitter 'account' is anything to go by, the knowledge of Tardis Builders is starting to spread (and certainly, I do my best to 'plug' TB). Some quite notable 'names' in the world(s) of Dr Who are starting to 'sit up and take notice' of our 'reference' section in particular. With a bit of luck, the 'word' will continue to spread and - hopefully - Tardis Builders will become the 'go to' site for well-researched information. That can only be a good thing! T
