BLOOPERS! – The Armageddon Factor

Having recently completed the Fan Edit of this story, I discovered all sorts of lovely bloopers that I`d completely missed when I watched the story the first time round when it came out on DVD.

First, you can here see where the top of the Tardis set stops…

And again here! What was Michael Hayes thinking of?

Wobbly sets are actually quite rare in Classic Who, but this one is a cracker! Watch closely as the Doctor comes in and closes the doors behind him – the entire wall moves! armageddon factor blooper 3.2

Keep an eye on the top of the screen in this shot and you can see a studio light as the camera pans past…

Here’s one you will certainly have missed – I did and it just goes to show how you can miss what’s right in front of you! When the Doctor gets shrunk and runs across to Drax you can see that Tom Baker is wearing a clip-on microphone!

This is the one that most people know about – the Mute trips up on a bit of carpet, gawd knows why it’s there – probably put there to deaden the sound of the Mutes’ clumping great Doc Marten boots on the studio floor…

No idea what this is that you can see through the gap in the set, probably a studio monitor…

At last! A boom mic shadow!

Since when did the Doctor cover the walls of the Tardis` corridors in black bin bags?

Here`s our old friend, the white gaffa-taped tardis console cable! armageddon factor blooper 10

And finally, when the Doctor moves towards the Key, sat on that glass-topped table from earlier, you can see where the edge of the Tardis set stops!
