Spring 2014 Update

The Model Unit is proud to have been nominated for a BAFTA Craft Award for work on Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor in the Special, Visual & Graphic Effects category. The BAFTA Television Craft Awards take place on Sunday 27 April 2014.

Filming miniatures constructed by the Model Unit for Doctor Who have now gone on display at the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff Bay.

The displays feature both the submarine models from Cold War and two dioramas from The Time of the Doctor.

In addition, the Dalek Emperor miniature that we constructed for the series’ re-launch back in 2005 is finally back on display after substantial repair and renovation by members of the original build team.

You can also read all about renovation work recently completed on a 1960s TARDIS prop used in The Mind Robber at The Prop Gallery.
