Professor Chronotis's TARDIS was disguised as the living quarters of Professor Chronotis at St. Cedd's College, Cambridge University. It was capable of holding another TARDIS within its force field and creating a bridge between the two to walk through.

This TARDIS was a Type 12, Mark 1 TARDIS, a much earlier version than the Doctor's Type 40, which Chronotis had salvaged from the scrap heap before leaving Gallifrey, something he was not meant to do under Time Lord law since as he had retired he was not meant to possess a TARDIS.

It could interfere in an individual's time stream, as Clare Keightley discovered when she reactivated the ship's controls, causing the previously deceased Chronotis to come back to life. (WC: Shada, AUDIO: Shada, PROSE: Shada, TV: Shada)

Features Edit

Professor Chronotis' TARDIS had completely different equipment compared to any other TARDIS considering it was much older than others used by different renegades: It featured no roundels, due to the interior being a library, and it didn't have a control console; instead, its controls were hidden in a bookshelf behind a fake line of books. (WC: Shada)
