TARDIS Technical Index

Type 32

The Time Lord engineers finally became a more innovative in designing TARDISes, after millions of years of stagnation. As if to make up for lost time, the last few thousand years of Gallifrey's existence would see a much wider variety of TT Capsules being produced. New models were being released approximately every 2 centuries. This acceleration appears to have greatly accelerated the rate at which Timeships were scrapped and replaced with a newer model, meaning that instead of lasting several millennia, the effective life-span of each capsule was less than a thousand years.

After following up on a suggestion by a Time Lord who might
have been
the Doctor, the Voice Integrator was invented by a Lord Therde. It can be found as part of the PAST on the Type 32 and all later TT Capsules.

  • First to have a Voice Integrator
  • The Type 32 was the first TARDIS to have XX or XY circuits installed to define their gender as male or female.
