This set design model was
used in the production of the Doctor Who story "Battlefield"
McCoy as the Doctor and Sophie
Aldred as Ace. This 26th season, four part serial (7n) was
first transmitted on 9/6/89.
This model was used by the BBC design department to work out
the particulars when constructing the "Gore Crow Hotel"
set used throughout this 7th Doctor story. Camera positions and
angles could be worked out in advance and general cast movement
could be exercised.
Because of the disposable
nature of these models there are very few still remaining intact
after all these years. Most were discarded or destroyed once
they served their purpose and the sets were built.
