Rubbertoe Doctor Who Dematerialisation Circuit Replica

Available to order from

The dematerialisation circuit is an essential part of a TARDIS, which enables it to dematerialise from normal space into the Time Vortex, and rematerialise back from it. Dematerialisation circuits have been used in several episodes of classic Who (Terror of the Autons, The Three Doctors).

Mini dematerialisation circuits were also used by the Daleks in their time travel devices, in the episode ‘Day of the Daleks’

Now Rubbertoe Replicas is pleased to offer you this beautiful replica of the most recent version of the Dematerialisation Circuit, used in the recent dramatic series 10 finale, ‘The Doctor Falls’.

In this episode, the dematerialisation circuit of the Master’s TARDIS was destroyed as a result of the Master’s attempt to escape a Mondasian colony ship which was being pulled into a black hole. Ultimately, the Master would come across his future incarnation, Missy, who provided him with a spare dematerialisation circuit which she had remembered to keep on hand as a result of their encounter.

Made by Doctor Who prop maker Alun Hardy, this version of the dematerialisation circuit is quite a lot smaller than the prop that appeared in the classic series. Our replica is 1:1 scale, and, as always with a Rubbertoe Replica, is made using exactly the same materials and techniques that were used to create the original screen used prop.

The Dematerialisation Circuit comes with it’s own specially designed stand so it can be displayed attractively, and is packaged in a Rubbertoe gift box.

The majority of The Dematerialisation Circuit is made from resin – there are 5 separate pieces; the main body and the four discs. The main body is then art-worked using the Hydrochrome system, and the rest is then hand painted. The small details such as the copper wire are made and added meticulously by hand – there are twenty nine separate components in this little piece! They may be small but they sure are fiddly!

    I don’t normally splash out on Rubbertoe products. They are fantastic and as close as you can get to owning the actual prop, but the price tag is too high to buy everything they do. On this occasion though, the link to the classic series made me go for it.

    So it’s “quite a lot smaller than the prop that appeared in the classic series” but “Our replica is 1:1 scale”. How does that work?

    Making this that quick after the finale seems odd

      Rubbertoe will have had the commission for months prior to the episode airing.

    I thought it was The Master that had kept a spare and was just lieing to Missy.

      No, she kept a spare with her, having remembered that conversation when she was him

    Yay, the first component in the “Maker your own TARDIS” Series! Can’t wait for issue #2 with the piece of TARDIS coral!

    Being serious, this is really cool. I really wanted someone to make a materialisation circuit prop.

      Can’t wait for the last issue, issue #1053 (coming in the year 4356) which comes with a jar of artron energy to kkick start your TARDIS’ micro eye of harmony.

      The Outcast, aren’t you forgetting a sentient “House” lifeform with issue #1234 where you can possess your friends with the Tardis’ matrix?

    • The Outcast

      July 9th, 2017 - 4:16pm

      Ahh, yes, how foolish I forget the 334 bonus issues that were released. I especially liked issue #1108 to #1125’s Timelord summoning device.

      I’m looking forward to issue 297, with the TARDIS homing device (as per season 18) and also issue 670 which shows you how to click your fingers so the TARDIS doors open.
