Quote from: Tony Farrell on Mar 26, 2017, 11:52 amEven if they were real and were 6" wide, the fact that they are at an angle of more-or-less exactly 45 degrees to the Master's Tardis means that a right-angled triangle is formed. This means that it is the hypotenuse of the triangle which is parallel to the side of his Tardis. If the two sides of a right-angled triangle are 6", i.e., the width of the floorboards, then it's hypotenuse is 8.49". 8 x 8.49 = 67.92. Five feet eight inches is clearly too great a depth.
