Here is my model of the space station from Season 23 of Classic Doctor Who: The Trial of a Time Lord. The space station was eventually given the name Zenobia in the BBC Novel's 8th Doctor story entitled The Eight Doctors.

This took me a month to build & texture, and features on the official artwork for the Season 23 bluray boxset, due for release in September 2019.


Rassilons Rod

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.


Allways loved this design, and I stared at the model for hours when it was on display at Longleat, it was massive...... I can't wait for the Blu-rays to see your lovely work in action ;D


No, not the mind probe!


Great work, Vortexvisuals!

Such a shame that the original model was caught in the Longleat fire. I used to see it regularly on my frequent visits to MOMI's Doctor Who exhibition in the early 90's.


That's a terrible shame, I was going to ask if anyone knew what happened to the original model...

(Curse you K.9, you twisted fire Starter!)


Is there a thread relating to exactly what was destroyed in that fire and the last known photos of the items?

I know that The Visitation android and a cleaner ended up in a bad shape. I've seen a fire damaged photo of both of them.


As upsetting as it would be, does anyone have any photos of the damaged props? Or could anyone can shed any definitive light on the ultimate fate of the space station model?

Until I find a stash of images here are some shots.

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