The Record of Rassilon
Every TARDIS built after the end of the Vampire Wars was equipped with the Record of Rassilon. This collection of magnetic cards contain the official history of the Great Vampire Wars. Inserting them into a slot on the console will produce a continuous scroll of paper with the information printed on it. It says (in part) that the Vampires are "the enemy of our people, and of all living things." It charges all Time Lords with the Directive of Rassilon: the task of destroying any Great Vampire or its descendants - even at the cost of his own life. The Record was withdrawn from all models of TARDIS after the Type 40.
