Wow! I never noticed that in "Spearheads From Space". (And if not for your great screen grabs, Nate, I probably never would have. So thank you once again for the images.)

And that's a great image of those robots from "Out of the Unknown", Tony. Thank you much for posting it (and remembering they were used in another production). I don't think we ever got "Out of the Unknown" in the States. If we did, I missed it.

Well, it wouldn't be the only time:

The Mind Robber re-used these robots (and the control panels previously noted by Nate - though not identical - look to be remarkable similar in size and style to this from "Out of the Unknown" as well)!

Those control panels - or similar ones - are also in the TARDIS in Abominable Snowmen part one, along with a very strange scanner with a circular 'porthole' affair framing the screen.  Sadly I don't have the telesnaps for it, can anyone oblige? 

A real shame that OOTU episode, The Prophet, is missing.  A cracking Asimov tale, and those robots burst into song; a wonderful Delia Derbyshire composition called 'Ziwzhi Ziwzhi Ooo Ooo Ooo'!

For those interested, Delia's "Ziwzih Ziwzih OO-OO-OO" can be heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jetzY-W78gg

Enjoy!  :)

Thanks for another superb set of images, Nate, and this time showing the original Brachacki console's last appearance before undergoing a major refurb.

And thanks for the link, Tony. That's a very interesting "tune". (I may have to turn it into an MP3 and put it on a custom CD!)

That's an outstanding index, Nate! That will make it a lot easier especially for new members that are still finding their way around the Forum (and for members that will join as time goes on).

Quote from: warmcanofcoke on Nov 03, 2016, 09:03 am
Thank you for the thank yous Dino. ;)

Anyone working that hard to get so many beautiful images from screen grabs, and then posts them here for our reference, definitely earned those thanks and hopefully I speak for all of us when saying that (otherwise you could be bombarded with "Thank yous"). ;) Your efforts are very much appreciated.

I hope your recovery is continuing to go smoothly.

Dino.

After a quick online search, here's the unusual scanner and control panels from The Abominable Snowmen.

Nice find!  :D
One of my favorite Troughton stories actually.

I have added you to the Index.  ;D ;)

Two telesnap shots from 'The Wheel in Space' Part One show the Box on the console, and the roundel cover.51d893800110a514ba9d66061365affdfc40e8f7.jpga26019b57a90391217939494b1c3cd30c6b98399.jpg

Another contributing factor to that panel being damaged more than the others is that it was the main access point for the time rotor so this panel was removed more often

This interesting instrument, the source of the Explosion maybe?

explosion2.jpg
The Explosion looks like the box wasn't there on the console during the actual burst. And that roundel cover has come from nowhere. Maybe this was filmed separately to avoid injury to the actors? Or during a different time in the shooting schedule when the set was redressed?

*edit ~ just realized it is on a different panel. I looked at the lights on the panel to the right of the explosion, and they were sort of in the same orientation *But I just noticed the instrumentation is different.

A little while back Nate/Warmcanofcoke posted a picture from Spearhead from Space showing the domed gadget (minus its perspex cover) which had also appeared in Troughton's Tardis Power Room and before that in "The Space Museum".

I said at the time that this unit had appeared in a film. Well, I've found the film and it is 1965's "The Curse of the Fly".

Here it is:

And, if you look carefully at the background, you'll also see the Rel Counter from "The Dalek Invasion of Earth: 2150AD"!

(Which also appeared in "The War Machines" by the way!)

Small world, isn't it?!

Nate, perhaps you'll move this post to the relevant topic?

You should have a look at te prop spotting thread over on http://www.zetaminor.com/roobarb/ (You have to join to see the Doctor Who section) it's in quite a few places.

Thanks for the tip Dom. You're the second person to have suggested that forum to me in as many days!
