when the TARDIS came to tea

Friday 4th August 2006

Of course when it was all over the sets and props had to be delivered back to Ashley's propstore. And so after it was all unloaded from the dirty-great-lorry the driver asked Ashley if he wanted to see something rather special. Ooh err. Well, once it was cleared up what the driver meant he said that Ashley ought to take one more look into the depths of the van. And sure enough right at the back was the BBC's original TARDIS prop which had been used in the Comic Relief sketch and was on it's way home.

And here it was only a few yards from his house! Now that was something special that he could tell his youngsters one day. Of course at this stage Adam and Ellis were some seven years from being born and so any such thoughts were a long way from Ashley's excited little mind. Now he is only a few years or so away from catching the right moment to tell them and they'll be able to stifle yawns or look interested sufficiently well to fool Ashley into thinking he's chosen the right moment to pass this great fan gem on...

Stephen also stole a few moments during the build day to look inside the TARDIS prop as it was unattended whilst sets were being constructed. We have the pictures...
