50 years of Doctor Who – The 11th Doctor’s TARDIS Console Room
After beginning this project in 2012, I was now, 2015, able to finally finish it. I know I’m a bit late for the anniversary, but time doesn’t matter, at least not when you are a timelord.
About this creation
I created several other MOCs during the 3 years, but never lost interest in building what I think is the most complex and complicated console room ever (honestly, there is not one right angle in it).

I must assume I didn’t like the design when I first saw it in 2010 – too colourful, too bright, too orange. I changed my mind when I watched the episode ‘Amy’s choice’, in which many scenes took place in the console room with different lightings.

Speaking about colour and lighting, the curved walls are indeed tan, not orange and the walls in the back metallic silver and not red/orange. This made building the MOC much more affordable for me, possible even, since there are not enough sand red LEGO parts to build the walls.
Nevertheless, I used some “artificial lighting” on the main picture to simulate the typical console room lighting.

I also created two versions of the “rings” on top of the time column, one small ring and a set of three concentrically rings that are close to the real set design. For display purposes I use the single ring version since the three rings block the view.

By the way, the MOC is almost completely puristic. All I did was cutting parts that are “officially” meant to be cut: Hoses of all kinds and string.

After several months of absence (due to personal reasons), I hope everybody likes my new MOC, especially Steven Moffat, Matt Smith and the production designer Edward Thomas. I’d like to thank you guys (just like everybody else involved in the brilliant Doctor Who series) and I hope that you’ll autograph the big, black tile in the right corner of the MOC.

Speaking of appreciations, I’d also like to thank Rob Semenoff, a fantastic 3D artist and dedicated Doctor Who fan. He provided me with some console room blueprints and without them, I wouldn’t have been able to build the MOC as accurate as the bricks allowed me to do it.
Have a look at Rob’s incredible homepage full of his Doctor Who works.

There are a few high resolution photos on flickr.
Enjoy them. I hope my version of the console room shows that I’m a truly dedicated Doctor Who fan and that I don’t need to … well … get “inspired” by other people’s IDEAs to become successful.

This is pure (Lego) GOLD!

Man, this is mind-boggling every time I come back to look at it. Those curves are just mesmerizing.

You should submit this on lego ideas, it might end up going on sale, and they could custom make peices for it to make it even better

Fantastic! I suspect it's very difficult to transfer such a fluid structure into Legos, but you certainly succeed!

This console room exceeded expectations. You capture all of the proper elements of the console itself, the column, everything. Great job.

Quoting Wesley T This is totally awesome! I just wonder where you get those piping pieces (the ones for the railing) because I'm not sure where to look on Bricklink for pieces like those.
Thank you, Wesley. The parts you are looking for are rigid hoses (http://www.bricklink.com/browseList.asp?itemType=P&catString=528).

Quoting Quinn Beeson 1. Awesome! Looks just like the real thing! 2. I am building a H.P Lovecraft themed build for a contest, and I was wondering if you could help me out?
Again, thanks everybody for the nice comments. Qinn, the only help I can think of is answering questions about Lovecraft or his works. Feel free to ask and good luck for the contest.

+1 with El Barto, it's a modern art museum as the textures and styles are so different and intricated at the same time. The work on stairs and staircases is stunning. A beautiful tribute. Another serious candidate for the MOC of the year.

Quoting Disco Chicken How did you make the big circles in the ground of the tardis??? I always see that technique in builds, but I can never figure out how people do it.
Those are brick arches, like the ones in the tan walls. Use one arch upside down, a plate and another arch and voilŕ, a perfectly round hole.

For a while there I was afraid you'd found a Tardis and lost yourself in time. Good to see you're still here and building! Crazy MOC, this. The design is so complex I'm almost confused looking at it, yet everything flows so beautifully together. Bravo!

This is really good! I enjoyed the lighting technique, which i haven't seen before. My stab at the TARDIS, (which I saw you liked), is the more modern one, but this is the best 11th console room I've ever seen! What is your opinion on the new set, which i saw had been aproved by Lego. Great job!

Quoting Chris Stone I've been looking forward to this ever since you announced your intentions to build it! You have really taken the cake with this build. Never, in my mind, could I have imagined that this T***** interior could actually be so accurately recreated with LEGO bricks. Bravo!
Thank you, Chris. That's the reason it took so long. But it was worth the efford.

Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head ... For no reason at all, here are my top 5: David Tenant (a cliché, I know, but with good reason I feel), Tom Baker, Peter Capaldi, Colin Baker (somehow his "horrible" portrayal completely won me over), and Peter Davidson. Again, fantastic work!
Thank you, KtGEHH. I like every Doctor I've seen so far. Each of them brings something new and special to the show.

Quoting Benjamin Corey ... Would you by any chance be building the late 11th-12th Doctor's console rooms next? that's my close favorite so far (second is the 9th-10th one).
Thank you, Ben. I'm pretty sure I'll build that console room, but before I start I'm going to finish some MOCs based on computer games.

Thank you, Bart. Actually, it IS a modern art museum that happens to look like the Doctor's console room ;o)

Quoting Tim C ... I'm really impressed at how you were able to show all the sharp angles and the fact that it wasn't as perfectly circular a design as past interiors ...
Thank you, Tim. Without Rob's plans, I probably wouldn't even have realised that the glasfloor isn't a symmetrical hexagon. This interior is the most interesting, but it almost drove me mad.

I have seen a lot of Dr. Who MOCs, but never have I seen anything like this! You captured it so perfectly, and I can't even imagine what it was like to work out all of those angles. I must admit that Matt Smith is not my favorite Doctor (even though he was quite good). For no reason at all, here are my top 5: David Tenant (a cliché, I know, but with good reason I feel), Tom Baker, Peter Capaldi, Colin Baker (somehow his "horrible" portrayal completely won me over), and Peter Davidson.

Thor, I really appreciate all the thought you have put into this work. I can see how difficult it must have been to create such complex angles and curves. The staircase(s) and the way the circular holes are embedded within curving walls are particular highlights for me. Thank you and congratulations for being uncompromising in bringing your vision to completion. ~Dave

Welcome back, Thorsten! Being a dedicated Doctor Who fan myself, and considering that No. 11's interior was my favorite of them all, this grabbed my attention immediately. I'm really impressed at how you were able to show all the sharp angles and the fact that it wasn't as perfectly circular a design as past interiors. One of the aspects of Matt Smith's seasons that made his block of episodes my favorite was that you got to see other areas rather than just the console room. You have represented that aspect well with all the entrances to the different corridors. It feels like you could find a swimming pool in there if you looked hard enough. Great work, fellow Whovian!
