That is fantastic! Never seen that before! When did it show up?
In the cities in the streets there's a tension you can feel,
The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.
Politicians gamble and lie to save their skins,
And the press get fed the scapegoats,
Public Enema Number One.

Just in the last week or so, I think.

It's one of a set of colour pictures taken during rehearsal for Volcano, some of the others are well known, such as the overhead picture of the studio, but this is the first one to show the TARDIS set.

Very pleasant surprise to have a 'new' photo come out like this. Makes me wonder how many others could still be out there. Holding out hope for eventual color photos of the Brachacki set prior to the bucket roundels' removal, and the walls' yellowing/repainting.

Yes, some colour pictures from the earlier series, would be great.

From Masterplan, there are now images from 4 of the 7 episodes that feature the TARDIS set.

The Nightmare Begins, The Feast of Steven, Volcano and Escape Switch (screen grabs).

Just need some from Coronas of the Sun, The Abandoned Planet and Destruction of Time, now.

I see Steven trying the Tenth Doctor's getup before it became fasionable.

Interesting that they didn't use the main double doors in this setup

I presume part of their space saving thing to allow other sets to be in the same studio.

Ah Marc, they did use the main doors - you can just make out the door drive gear 'housing' at the bottom of the half-roundel behind the camera (also if you look, the honeycomb roundel 'pattern' doesn't continue behind the camera which it would do were the second 3D wall to have been used)>

Now you say that, I'm also seeing a diagonal edge of one door too.

I wonder why I didn't identify the door panel when last I looked. Thanks for the correction, Tony  :)

Incidentally,  when do you estimate the walls stopped being green?

Well, we know for definite that the 3D walls were painted off-white when Galaxy Four went before the cameras (see https://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?msg=103008 ).

We also know that the original 'bucket'/stepped PVC roundel backings/mouldings were replaced on two of the 3D walls when "The Chase" was recorded in April/May 1965.

However, the rarely seen third 3D wall retained its original bucket mouldings and was seen in its original form in "The Time Meddler".

To answer your question, I think that (two of) the 3D walls were repainted off-white in April 1965 to coincide with the replacement of the roundel backings.

I don't think that the rarely seen third 3D wall was repainted (and its PVC mouldings were replaced) until all three walls were cut down by 6 inches at the end of Hartnell's tenure.

Wait. 3rd wall? I've missed this somewhere in all your pages of imfo. Are there any photos of all three together?

1 x 3D Wall with main doors
2 x 3D Walls built to go either side of wall with the main doors.

All three walls seen in Edge of Destruction/Brink of Disaster and all three walls seen together in The Time Meddler as part of the Monk's Tardis.

Ah I see. Just a problem of crossed nomenclature. I wasn't thinking of the doors as a wall. With you now :)
