End of the Line
Over the centuries of the Time War the High Council of the Time Lords authorized several cross-breeding experiments between 103 and 105 timeships in the hope of discovering new, favourable, mutations. Despite this research, the Form 105 is the most advanced TARDIS known to exist before the Final Battle. The fall of the last Gallifrey signalled the end of the Time Lords and their research into TARDIS design. Many of the Laws of Time were suspended, and the walls of reality closed. It became virtually impossible for any timeship to visit alternate realities, even if the proper phase-shift was known. The Doctor's Type 40 Model B (sometimes known as Sexy) was the only TARDIS known to escape destruction. With no Prime Eye of Harmony to replenish its Heart, that timeship, was required to scavenge energy from space-time rifts and other temporal phenomenon.
It is known that the former Time Agent, Jack Harkness has a small amount of TARDIS coral and he has been using it to slowly grow his own TARDIS. The Doctor also left another sample of his TARDIS coral in an alternate universe with a half-human version of himself. It remains to be seen whether either of these will be able to grow into a fully functional Time And Relative Dimension in Space.[/ttv]
