being at Pinewood

Blimey - here we were. In a dirty great studio. And we knew - no-one. Hmm now what? Actually it was far from that - we were made very welcome and we managed to chat to people and see how things got done. As long as we kept back and didn't get in the way we were all right. The best bit was being consulted to ensure our TARDIS set was as we wanted it. Stephen and Ashley constructed it on the build day and at any time one of our three (David also came up) were on hand to make sure things were okay. And of course the famous "wobbling console column" needed our attention - more on that elsewhere!
