TARDIS Technical Index

Time Corridor

(aka Kontron Tunnel)

A time corridor is a form of space-time travel that involves creating a wormhole through the Vortex that is connected to two different space-time zones, and is stable enough to allow unprotected humanoids to travel it. The traveller needs only to step into the Time Corridor to be instantly transported to the other end. Because these wormholes are very similar to the ones used by a TARDIS it is quite easy for a TARDIS travelling in the Vortex to be caught in a Time Corridor and be drawn along it to its destination. The time stresses of being caught in a Time Corridor can accelerate a TARDIS to such a high speed that it could break up if it tries to escape. There is also a chance that the TARDIS could be damaged by time particles colliding with its multidimensional implosion field. With proper modifications a TARDIS's Time Control Unit can be used to shift one end of a Time Corridor to a different point in time.
