Are the 7th Doctor heads still removable? The one on my TV movie 7 has a bad mark on it, but my Silver Nemesis Set one is good

TW.
They are, yes! All based around the same body so you could also theoretically switch the hatted head, if you had that, onto any of the new ones.

just did some digging and the Newbery has always had magenta and yellow windows since Masque, it's just the lighting that makes it look grey sometimes, Hoth Han Solo style. Crazy..., I always thought they were grey
There were grey (with the bottom two panes of glass being a yellowy/beige colour), but I think when the prop was filmed in certain daylight conditions, they could sometimes tend to look a bit pinky.

Indeed, it seems I'm well and truly going color blind after this and the McGann mix up! :lol: After another look over, I see what you mean

It's very odd haha, I've only just started to really get into Tom's era, but they're very grey in Robots of Death, Invasion of Time and this picture here:

And in some shots of Masque

But either medium pink in others:

But towards the end of its life, and after as a stand in, very pink:

Very odd indeed, perhaps they were only slightly tinted, or indeed, very grey, and as time wore on they discolored? My head hurts haha :lol: But either way, as much as grey is more iconic, and I would've preferred, I do appreciate their being some history for the magenta windows. A shame the actual Newbery is MIA..

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Well I guess no one's ever seen the ending to Blake's 7, aka, don't trust Avon :lol:

Isn't this a thing where in some percentage of people they perceive colors differently depending on which hemisphere of the brain is dominant? That, or I'm nuts :lol:

Not sure if this link'll work, but this is the Newbery reference page on TARDIS builders, which has lots of pictures:

Your hemispheres are broken mate.

Also a fun fact: The Eighth Doctor's DWM Blue Coat doesn’t actually originate in DWM. It first appeared in Dreadnought, a radio times comic featuring the Doctor and his new companion Stacy fighting the Cybermen. It was the first Eighth Doctor story released after the TV movie, with the first part being published a month after the TV movie came out.

:lol: it appears my mind is no longer in mint condition :lol: . That I didn't know! I've known of Dreadnought, and of Stacy, Ssard and co for ages but didn't realize that was both the first appearance of the blue coat nor how early they were published! Crazy, I always remembered the coat from DWM when the green one gets trashed in a swimming pool (?), been awhile

I think they maybe got confused over what the colour was in the movie, because it changed back to the green one after Dreadnought, then it was brought back later in DWM.

His green coat didn’t get trashed in a swimming pool, he blew it up or fed it to a snake thing or something. I can’t quite remember the exact details but he loses his coat in Ophidius (where Izzy switches bodies with Destrii) then in the following story, Beautiful Freak, he changes into his blue one and ends up jumping into a swimming pool to stop Izzy from dehydrating in her fish body.
