This article needs to be updated.

Even if The Day of the Doctor was the first on-screen credit, there's definitely been a much longer involvement considering Mike Tucker's relationship with the show in series 1 and 2 (and possibly Cold War?).

These omissions are so great that the article's factual accuracy has been compromised. Check out the discussion page and revision history for further clues about what needs to be updated in this article.

Mike Tucker talks about restoring Morbius, and the restoration process in general.

The Model Unit, sometimes credited as The Modelo Unit, provided miniature effects on Doctor Who. Supervisor Mike Tucker won a BAFTA for his work on the Doctor Who television story The Day of the Doctor.[1] The Model Unit was nominated for a Craft & Design Award for their special effects in The Day of the Doctor.

Beginning in December 2015, the Model Unit was engaged in refurbished props from classic Doctor Who for the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff prior to its 2017 closure. Their first project was the restoration of the original Davros costume and chair.[2] In July 2016, they ran a contest on doctorwho.tv to decide which classic monsters to restore next. 8,000 voted; the winners were the Mandrels and Morbius.[3] They were unveiled in August.[1]
