The research and work that's gone in is incredible - a great resource!I may be able to help shed some light on one section, though, if I may! (It's all based on Photographs I recently spent a couple of years working to find - as copies are no longer held at the BBC, only with the original photographer and now me - so they're my 'Mastermind' subject!)Under The Grey Aztec, it's noted; "The button frame was missing once before for the promotional photoshoot for the 2006 Christmas Special, 'The Runaway Bride', however after the photoshoot it had been replaced for at least a couple of episodes for Series 3."The images for Runaway Bride promotion (Tennant, Tate, Santas, and the TARDIS in the snow) weren't actually shot during production for The Runway Bride at all, but rather much later, closer to Christmas. The shots of Tennant were done in Cardiff on Monday 30th October (Tate was shot separately, in London, almost a fortnight earlier). In the day, Tennant had been shooting swear scenes for Daleks in Manhattan.In terms of Series Three production, The Runaway Bride, Smith and Jones, The Shakespeare Code, and Gridlock had already finished filming (barring a few pickup shots here and there), and Daleks in Manhattan / Evolution of the Daleks were around two-and-a-half weeks into production. So if it's any of those episodes that still feature the Sonic with the button frame, I'd wager it could well be the original, and it simply went astray a little later than expected!W
Quote from: mycroft on Mar 03, 2019, 12:24 pmThis is great stuff with superb pictures to back up the research & will read it again. It reminded me of the excitement that this Sonic gave us all when the series was re-booted, an excitement that was never matched again in later models.I have to confess I have a soft spot for the intermediate Sonic, so it was good to give that a nod. (I think it's the big Button I like). Here's hoping for a mini one on Rivers Sonic.Just one question that sprang up on 1st time reading was what we're the quirks of the Wand Co Sonic? Cheers again. A great read
