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.

Kingpin

That's the one.

I wonder what that little nobly bit is for...


I had a quick spin through a few episodes of Davison's run (season 21 to be specific), the "nobly bit" appears to have first shown up in Planet of Fire, but it doesn't seem to get any use.  It may've been installed for a sequence that was ultimately discarded from the story (Maybe something involving Kamelion, perhaps).

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

I reckon it's a socket for a Post Office jack (they were all the rage at the BBC. Balanced audio before the advent of XLR and they were still popular in the 2000s when I worked there).

If these were abandoned/junked, where did the walls for Dimension in Time come from? That became the Rani's interior walls?

Were fans actively making walls like those at that time?


Weren't the doors built for the big Panopticon 1993 Convention.

I thought that, and rereviewing DIT, the doors and door wall looks right.
Kind Regards,

Similar to a 1/4" jack, but more of a ball end on them.

And as you can see, the ring is scalloped too.

'Fraid not.  That socket (pictured below) was on a different panel, in a different location, and appeared five years after the small square one we've been discussing.

Great picture Kingpin. I'm imagining these are not from a broadcast or DVD?

Interestingly you can just about make out the grid of lights which is normally covered with smoked perspex just to the right of the picture.
