(To me, at least, it looks like someone got lazy and decided to reuse those Curator hexagon things instead.)
QuoteIf that 360-degree is accurate with wall placement and number of walls, then someone would have had to go through a lot of work to make more of those hexagon things. (Photo Blow-up walls would have been far better. Also, unless it's just the lighting, that console room looks way too white. Where is the green console? I know they painted it white for "Hell Bent", but then they painted it green again. Did they have that much extra time on their hands, and money in their pockets, to paint the bloody thing white again?!)I just hope it looks more "Hartnell" in the episode than it does in the publicity photos because as white as it looks in those photos, and with those hexagons on the walls, that set does not speak "Hartnell" to me.Dino.

Just being able to see the orginal-ish console and console room is a thrill for me.

They could have just used the Console room walls and doors that were used in Hell Bent, with the too small doorway that to my eyes always jars when I see it on screen.
Quote from: Vale on Dec 07, 2017, 03:54 pmAlso, can we just reflect on how far we have come in a relatively few years? I've been a fan of Doctor Who long enough to remember it going off air in 1989 and the wilderness years where it didn't look as though we'd ever see it on TV again. Now we're blasé enough to be able to complain that a deliberate homage to the classic series ON PRIME TIME TV ON CHRISTMAS DAY doesn't have dodgy photo-blow-up walls that would look ludicrous in even standard definition, never mind HD.
