A view behind Alan's desk

Not exactly interesting, but a little peek behind the set.

A Series 2 audience waits...

Funny, it always looks so much bigger on telly!

The very first sketch

This is a scan of the very first rough sketch I made whilst dreaming up the idea for the set.

Also included is another rough sketch working out how I could get a Golden Section screen into a two-shot.

Ever Evolving

There are some subtle differences between the 'Q' desk on Series 1, Series 2 and Series 3.

Let me know if you spot them.

The Set Construction

These pictures show the construction phase of the set build.

If I can dig them out, I'll try to post some of my construction drawings and designs.

Q.i - Inspirations

Here are a series of pictures that were part of the inspiration for my set design.

These were ultimately used on the 'rings' behind Stephen.

In no particular order of importance: The Rosetta Stone, The Dead Sea Scrolls, Egyptian Hieroglyphics and The Golden Section, which was used elsewhere on the set.

Other images not shown are Newtonian scientific formulae and an Astrology Chart.
