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.

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

Trick of the light, or is the base missing for the shot of the crew running out of the doors?

Angelus Lupus

It could be... but looking closely I can say that - based on those dark marks on the runway, and the lines of the square slabs - that it looks like the position/location of the Tardis when it materialises in the long shot, isn't the same as the close up of everyone legging it! 
It lands, and they exit, with a corner of a square directly in front of the doors and a line running under the corner of the box. This isn't true in the close up.
A mixed-up non-conformist, trying to fit in.

Davros Skaro

Looks missing to me.

Wild guess. The base on its casters would have led to too much prop wobble as Ben and Polly ran out through the doors, so they took it off.

That's a fair guess actually.

But they really could have just bunged some stage weights behind the wheels. (Though as we know, things were easily, and more often than would be useful, left behind).
