Quote from: Mark on Dec 08, 2017, 09:06 amAs for the brilliant white paint scheme, I'm undecided. I appreciate it is what was intended to be seen on screen originally but seeing it does make it look a bit clinical and boring. Perhaps If the roundals had that yellow tinge like later versions it would look better?
Quote from: Mark on Dec 09, 2017, 08:11 amI have to disagree with you on one point and that is have the console pale green.
Quote from: Mark on Dec 09, 2017, 08:11 amFrom my understanding, the console was only ever painted that colour originally so that it would appear white on the older cameras of the day without bleaching out the picture once the studio lights were on.
Quote from: Mark on Dec 09, 2017, 08:11 amLight gray would have worked well, I agree with that point.
Quote from: Mark on Dec 09, 2017, 08:11 amI agree wholeheartedly with you Dino that this console room looks wrong but I'm hoping David and Peters performance along with the "canon" 1st Doctors TARDIS exterior will make up for this.
Quote from: Mark on Dec 10, 2017, 09:39 amThat made me laugh Dino!I didn't intend to sound like Tony, but being likened to him in any way is quite flattering.
Quote from: galacticprobe on Dec 10, 2017, 01:09 amIf the console was intended to be "white", when they built the Kenneth Sharp console to replace the ailing Brachacki console (which was clearly green in "Inferno"), why did they paint the Sharp console green as well? (My guess for them leaving the Brachacki console green for her only color appearance in "Inferno" was because it was the last time she would be seen, and didn't want to spend money on paint, or the time it would take to do the painting on something destined for the bin after that last story in Season 7.)
Quote from: galacticprobe on Dec 10, 2017, 01:09 am With the long break between when the Brachacki console made her last appearance, and when the Sharp console made her first, it would have been easy back then for viewers to just accept a white console; they didn't have the luxury of looking back at their VCR recordings, or DVDs, to see if the console was white in "Inferno". The designers could easily have gotten away with painting the Sharp console white, but instead, they painted it green, which let all viewers see a green console that lasted from Season 8 to Season 13, before revealing a revamped Sharp console in grey-tones and silver in Season 15.
