Cheers, TigerMan
Sorry for the lot of images...

No, sorry TigerMan, the set arrangement doesn't match An Unearthly Child - in Edge and Brink we actually see the Tardis Control Room interior set out in its 'fullest form' its both longer and wider and utilises all of the set elements created by Brachacki and Newbery.

Sofia Fox

That is why I said 'bigger Unearthly arrangement' as it was a similar arrangement but bigger.

tony farrell

No sorry - as well as being bigger, it was a different arrangement to that seen in both the Pilot Episode and to that seen in An Unearthly Child.  :)

These images appear to show a "fourth wall" where the camera (a.k.a. "the fourth wall") normally is. It's a full roundel wall, and you can see it when the Doctor is at the Fault Locator wall, when Ian is collapsed in the chair and Susan is slumped over the console, and when the Doctor is confronting Ian and Barbara as they sit on the floor.

If you look closely at the image with the Doctor confronting Ian and Barbara, you can see the end of that roundel wall. (The roundels end and you have a blank spot, which is presumably the side of the wall panel... unless they also used a blank wall to cover the end of the roundel wall and make sure none of its edges appeared on camera).

Dino - You shouldn't need to speculate about this; I covered this in 2013 (see http://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?topic=4825.0 ). Every element of the main Tardis set is described in detail including screen-accurate dimensions and materials used:

<pounding fist against head... again>

You're right, Tony. I should have remembered that, especially since I've got a copy of your drawing tucked away in my 'Who' folder. My problem (other than being daft as a brush at times) is that I forget about those walls being "wild" so they can move out of the way for cameras to get in for the angles the shot requires. Many times the camera likes to shoot with those walls behind them, so they're rolled out of the way (which is more often than not throughout the Hartnell era). So when looking at a story that takes place entirely inside the TARDIS, with lots of time spent in the console room showing recording angles not normally used, one tends to forget about those walls that one hasn't seen in a while; thus when those walls are seen again, one feels a "Eureka" moment, and in the excitement manages to exhibit a certain resemblance to a brush... again.

This should be a good starting point - however, as Tony quite rightly pointed out to me, a few things were different. eg placement of the food machine.

But there are plenty of dims on there to crack on with too. Thanks to Tony for posting these originally.

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.

I originally posted this in two separate sections - one for the Control Room and one for the Living Quarters (bedrooms) - I didn't realise that they were both two halves of the same diagram. Credit where credit is due, it was Jonathan/Markofrani who posted the complete provisional set plan.

Whilst the layout of the bedrooms appears to have been followed, as Marc says, the layout of the Control Room differs from what was actually realised on screen. If you want an accurate Control Room, you need to follow the plans I created (he says modestly)!  :)
