Nick Robatto Job
Nick found love for breaking down stuff and building them back again at a very young age. He used to dismantle his father’s video recorder. Then, his father started buying him Airfix model kits “to keep myself occupied rather than taking anything apart”.
In school, Nick took to design and technology classes before going to art school. At that point, he just thought that since he liked drawing and painting he was going to do something along those lines. He thought he would be a good graphic designer but he loved making stuff.
He said, “Then, I started doing the product design course and after six months, I realized that I didn’t like it because it was all science and there wasn’t a lot of making stuff.”
At the university, Nick studied model-making. Then, he started building architecture models, product models, exhibitions, sets, and displays.
Nick was best known as the prop-maker for BBC’s hit show Doctor Who. He shared that he landed the job by accident. At the time he got a job with a company making architectural models. And when BBC relaunched Doctor Who in 2005, the producers turned to model-makers for props.
Nick worked for Doctor Who for six years. Then, he went independent and also made props for Casualty, Torchwood, Merlin, and Sherlock. Most of his creations are sonic screwdrivers. Nick told BBC, “The sonic screwdrivers are probably the most complicated because they have electronics and moving parts. They have to be handmade. It’s nice to have the challenge”
He earned his license to produce replicas. The replica props were available on the business website Rubbertoe Replicas’ online shop. The company created accurate and handcrafted replica props and memorabilia.
These include Dalek Death Ray Stalks, Captain Jack’s Sonic Blaster, and River Song’s Squareness Gun. Plus memorabilia items based on screen-used props, such as Gallifreyan symbol coasters, TARDIS console plaques, and Sonic Screwdriver holders.
