Part of the walls of the control room are covered in a huge map of the world, opposite which is an astrological map of part of the universe. The reason for this is not given, however it is quite plausible that the village keeps an eye on the rest of the world. Of course there are external agents working for The Village the globe over, which brings us nicely to the pair of the World and Astral globes which once upon a time would come in pairs. This might be reference to those as demonstrated upon the circular wall of the control room, reflecting the ancient world and astral globes.
The number of world globes seen upon the desk in the control room of the rocket in ‘Fall Out’ seem to have no purpose there, save to disguise the fact that there is still the aerial map of London, which Professor Schnipps used to demonstrate the destruction of the capital during the briefing of his troops during the episode of ‘The Girl Who Was Death.’
Be seeing you
