why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

some great pictures there Nate, well done.
I always liked to have had that box (without the scrolls). wonder if they are still available?

Yet more amazing prop reference images, Nate, and more thanks for grabbing and posting these for us. (You're working really hard at getting these images for us, and you're doing it so selflessly. You're just brilliant!)

That certainly looks like some off-the-shelf boxes I've seen over the years, albeit probably "dirtied up" some to make it look ancient. There should be some "close enoughs" out there if this exact box isn't available anymore. With these great images one could get some pleather and the copper tacks from a fabric store, and take a wooden box that's decently close in size and "bling" on the detailing. And with today's technology and the laser-cutting capability, making that Great Seal of Rassilon out of some copper for the top shouldn't be too difficult.

The only problem I have with "The Five Doctors" special (or any story featuring the Castellan played by Paul Jericho) is, ever since that birthday present someone sent me anonymously some years ago (2012, according to the date the photo was taken), anytime I see the Castellan all I can think of are his last words spoken (before "Aaaah!") as he's carted out of the High Council Chambers:
(Yeah; for those that remember it, it still exists, though it's gotten a bit snug over the years: shrinkage on its part, slight expansion on mine. I think it will make a great pillow, though, since it's difficult to wear these days.)
