"Overweight, underpowered, museum piece... Might as well try to fly a second hand gas stove!" - The Master

It's no good being able to go anywhere in time and space if you always arrive in the middle of deep space or at the centre of a star. This section examines in detail the various systems that get a TARDIS going where its operator wants it to go, or not as the case may be. In particular, it contains a guide to the various TARDIS Control Rooms, including all the known variants of the Doctor's Console Rooms.
