Rubbertoe Replicas - Behind the Scenes - Doctor Who

Robatto explains how he makes replicas of actual Doctor Who props for Rubbertoe Replicas.

Nicholas Robatto (also credited as Nick Robatto) was a staff props maker for Doctor Who, Torchwood, and The Sarah Jane Adventures. He worked on most episodes of Doctor Who through series 6, but was sometimes uncredited — particularly in the early RTD era.

In 2011 — which is to say the production year for series 7 — he left his full-time position at Doctor Who to create Rubbertoe Props, a freelance company which then continued to supply Doctor Who with props throughout the Matt Smith era. In fact, Rubbertoe were a major part of the team that built the series 7 TARDIS console room. In February 2013, Robatto established Rubbertoe Replicas, BBC Worldwide's licensed premium replica prop house.

Robatto was again personally credited during series 11, as a specialist props maker.
