Flatline Tardis Dr Who Prop
Well, the latest BBC Dr Who series is almost upon us (Series 8, set to start 23/8/14), & there is palpable excitement amongst its many fans. We (Icon & Co [Wales] Ltd) are very proud of our continued involvement as one of the suppliers to the show’s production in nearby Cardiff, & were especially excited to spot the media coverage of the mini Tardis Dr Who prop, which was built by ourselves, that appeared a few weeks back (see pic above). Our handiwork was splashed across much of the British printed media, including The Sun’s full-page treatment which we’ve featured here.
As the animation below shows, we did have a little trouble with the transportation mechanism which, once installed, got stuck on a de-materialisation loop. We did eventually manage to jump in and flick the necessary switch, bringing all back under control, but not after we lost the boss somewhere in 1835. I’m sure he’ll be happy there…
