The Time Expander mini-playfield raises and lowers during play: It its lowest position (Level 1), the kick-out holes are accessible. In its middle-position (Level 2), five round white standup targets are accessible, and when in its upper position (Level 3), three flyaway targets are accessible. Dalek backbox topper lights up (and its head moves from side to side on some games. See Notes below).

The two flippers at the bottom of the playfield are slightly shorter than Williams’ standard-size flippers. This was a change implemented by Williams management to hopefully shorten game time and increase earnings. These shorter flippers have a lightning bolt design embossed on the top of them.

Dr. Who Notes:

Designer Bill Pfutzenreuter told us that about a dozen (or less) sample games were made. Then followed by approximately 100 prototype games, before regular production began. Up to this point in manufacture, the Dalek head in the backbox topper moved from side to side.

Notes Cont.:

We asked Pfutz if he was aware of a way for new owners of this game to discern if their moving Dalek head came from the factory that way or was retrofitted. He said that Williams had glued the stationary Dalek head onto the body, therefore the kits had to “unglue” or cut the head off, and that it was complained that Williams had used too much glue. Thus, perhaps one could look for any irregular cuts or glue remnants. If anyone knows of additional ways to positively identify retrofits, please contact us.

The game in the manufacturer’s flyer has a ramp decal showing the single red arrow while all regular production examples in this listing show the two yellow arrows on this ramp. Also pictured in this listing is the upper playfield from the game with serial number 060031 which has the single red arrow. Based on the many other serial numbers identified in this production run, we have labeled this game as Early Production.
