Following our work on the 50th Anniversary episode of Doctor Who, more of our model shots will feature in Matt Smith’s final episode, The Time of the Doctor, which airs on Christmas Day on BBC One. In addition, Model Unit Supervisor Mike Tucker is due to appear in the episode, albeit in the guise of an iconic villain!
Full details of the sequences we provided will be posted on the website following transmission.
The Model Unit’s involvement in Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor was for the Time War section, providing several cutaways of the Time Lord staser cannon (including its destruction), and a longer sequence showing John Hurt’s TARDIS crashing through a wall and destroying several Daleks.
