TARDIS Technical Index

Type 39

Type 39The Type 39 was the first model of TARDIS whose Protyon Core manifested semi-sentience. The idea of a TARDIS acting on its own initiative took the Time Lords a while to believe and then even longer to accept. Many Capsules were sent for repairs or even de-energized for their disobedience.

  • The Type 39 was the first to have Temporal Grace Circuits
  • First with a set of Data-Banks (sorted with an Index File) that held information about the cosmos.
  • Used by the criminal Salyavin.
