At the rate that "crystal" TARDIS spins, I would say that the motor is a brushless DC type. Stepper motors don't spin that fast, at least not any of the ones I've worked with. Their movements are also not smooth, hence the term "stepper"; they rotate in steps (think of the second hand on a classic wind-up watch).

If you want your crystal TARDIS to whirl about like the one on the actual console, I'd look for a brushless DC motor. (Voltage and wattage isn't that important; you can use a 6V or 12V motor, unless you're going for absolute accuracy.)

I hope some of this is helpful.

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

Was it my imagination or did we just see the crystal buttress tips moving in time with the central column in tonight's episode?

Yeah, I can't say I've noticed it before even the other week when we saw the time column moving up and down.

I'd need to see it in wide shot to see if I like it.

If I recall correctly, this this the only shot (courtesy of Kingpin) where we can see the floor raised to become a table for the chemistry setup. We never see it being raised; the Doctor using it; or any clear shots of it whatsoever; pretty soon after the chemistry setup is moved to a table elsewhere and the table is collapsed again. Not much of an appearance on-screen.

However, in a parting Tweet, Arwel Wyn Jones posted a set photo with the table still raised and the chemistry setup still on it.

I'm fairly confident that the floor element was already designed to do this, but I'm skeptical about the depth between this platform and the set floor and the fact that we never see it going up or down.

Unless there was a telescoping mechanism built into it, it likely was just a static installation slipped into the recess for the hexagon, though it'll be exciting to see it possibly appear in a later episode. :)

It could even be that a segment featuring it was filmed, but ultimately left on the cutting room floor.

One of the roundels seems to be pointing the opposite way from all the others. The front-most arms are pointing right, whereas the front-most arms on the others all point left.

It's a brave move, because I don't think the entry of the TARDIS has ever been portrayed like this before, not even in comics.  If nothing else, it's going to make an  actual home-built console room much more accurate, now you can really have the box on the outside and entry through the "4th wall".


Actually that's not quite true. There was one Hartnell episode where they did the same with the interior of the police box ... look at the end of the recon of The Massacre.

Has interest in the finer details of this console design faded already?

I guess a lot of any lack of interest isn't necessarily down to the design but - judging by this website - a lack of any detail on the console itself. There's hardly a knob, switch, lever or button to be seen. Looked at up close its so many metal pipes (which look cool, admittedly) but between them so much empty space.
