what a fantastic looking console the 5 doctors one was my favourite next to the pertwee version ihad built a 70s console 12 years ago with no time rotor movement as i was not sure how to do it so i left it the way it was. it had been used for several dr who exhibitions and after the last one in paisley i decided to sell it due to storage problems i sold it on ebay and only got 120 pounds for it someone from southhampton bought it and have never seen it since . if you want to see a photo of my console it can be found on the dr who exhibitions in scotland website.
i tried to get a fresnal lens from the marine shop but was told they do not do them any more and the manufacturer stoped doing them does any one know where i will find one in the uk without nicking one from outside st johns hospital .
