Doctor Who Fans Refurbish TARDIS Console From 1996 Movie for Gallifrey One Convention

Paul J. Salamoff is a former special effects artist from Burbank who now works as a writer and producer. He’s also the owner of the TARDIS console from the 1996 Doctor Whotelevision movie starring Paul McGann. This weekend, he unveiled the refurbished prop at Los Angeles’ annual gathering of Whovians, Gallifrey One.
It makes sense that Salamoff, who gave the prop a new life with the help of two other fans, would choose Gallifrey One for the big reveal. A Doctor Who aficionado since childhood, Salamoff has been attending the convention for at least 15 years. While this convention still flies a little under the media radar, Gallifrey One is becoming better known as more and more people in the U.S. are obsessing over the long-running British sci-fi franchise, which on BBC America.
It was a long, arduous process that one of Salamoff’s cohorts documented on his blog, but the response was worth it. The eighth Doctor himself, McGann, stopped by with his son to play with some of the controls.
