TARDIS Technical Index

Jibbert Cathocode Troisieme Timepiece


This component is usually part of the Control Console. It records the passage of time aboard a TARDIS. When a TARDIS is near death the flow of time between the interior and exterior breaks down. The effect of this is similar to Temporal Orbit. In such cases several minutes will pass inside a TARDIS for every second that passes outside.
