TARDIS Technical Index

Other Store Rooms

The boot cupboard

The tower of the Time Sceptre is enclosed in a spherical chamber that is several miles in diameter. This chamber (or endo-shell) marks the limits of the quasi-dimensional continuum that is the TARDIS's micro-universe. This spherical chamber is covered with numerous pods connected by rods. These are the extra rooms and corridors. New customized modules (rooms) are added when needed using a Protyon Unit's matter generation technology. This allows the operator to generate a new custom designed module on the outer sphere, which is then linked (via space-time bridges) to the Core Service Module.

There is a Sports Center which contains the space and equipment necessary to take part in every type of Gallifreyan sport. Other rooms found inside a TARDIS include an Art Gallery, Conservatory, a cinema, a Studio, Central Nexus Point, a vehicle garage, a water purification plant, a wine cellar, attics, and boot cupboards (see illustration).

The TARDIS can artificially simulate almost any undeveloped planetary surface with massive storage rooms. The Artificial Jungle, for example, includes crumbling stone temples and pools of goldfish. They can have their own weather systems, and some are big enough to contain several climbable mountains. Other examples include a rose garden, an artificial forest, multiple arboretums, and a room filled with butterflies. The doors to these artificial outdoors are hidden in such a way that, when closed, it can be very difficult to find them again.
