Following the recent announcement that Wimbledon Studios Ltd has gone into administration, the Model Unit is pleased to announce its return to the historic Ealing Film Studios in West London.
Model Unit Supervisor Mike Tucker explains, “The move to a bigger space at Wimbledon allowed us to handle two huge projects for Doctor Who that would have been very difficult at our Ealing facility. However, given the unfortunate situation that has arisen at Wimbledon, it makes perfect sense for us to return to the studio where we first set up shop in 2005.”
The move is taking place during the last week of August, and the Model Unit will resume normal service from September 1st.

Model Unit Supervisor Mike Tucker was a recent guest blogger for the Wimbledon Studios website, talking about the BAFTA-winning effects work done for Doctor Who – The Day of the Doctor. The article can be read here: Mike Tucker on The Model Unit At Media Village
UPDATE (August 2014): Wimbledon Studios has sadly since gone into administration, and faces an uncertain future. As their website is currently suspended, we have reproduced the content of Mike’s original blog locally.
It’s a huge honour to win this award in such a competitive category, and I’m delighted that it’s for a programme that showcases just how good collaboration between different effects disciplines can be.
