Forgive me if this post is a little light on text. I’m still a little giddy. Basically I went on a tour of the TARDIS set this afternoon, and we were allowed to touch the console and everything. THE. ACTUAL. TARDIS. SET.
So, here are just a few snaps of the stuff which has been been used to create the console. It is, in many ways, a junkshop rummage made into a spaceship, reflecting the mind of the man who flies it.

There’s are too many things to show pictures of here, but suffice to say the Doctor has a rubber mallet on a string hanging from the console, and underneath are two bass drum pedals (without beaters) and a footpump, of the sort you’d use to inflate a blow-up mattress.
