Update on Doctor Who stamp issue - PSB technical details

Only yesterday, I wrote Royal Mail have now confirmed the following technical details for the Dr Who Prestige Stamp Book:  except that my contact told me the credits detail shown in the book.  Collectors will know that the PSB details  often get the printer/process details wrong.

From another Royal Mail source, we have been told that this is the true situation:

Doctor Who panes on ordinary gum printed in lithography by Cartor Security Print.

Miniature sheet pane is self-adhesive, and printed in litho by Joh Enschede Stamps Cartor Security Print.

Machin/Tardis pane on ordinary gum printed in gravure by Walsall Security Print. Only the Machin stamps have security print - we expect these to be MPIL and M12L (now confirmed, by those who already have stock!)
