Junkyard

Junkyards were places used for the disposal of waste. 76 Totter's Lane, where the First Doctor first encountered companions Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright, was a junkyard. (TV: "An Unearthly Child") The friends later reminisced about that day, the Doctor saying, "It all started out as a mild curiosity in the junkyard, and now it's turned out to be quite a great spirit of adventure, don't you think?" (TV: "Strangers in Space")

The Doctor later stayed in a different yard, which is where the TARDIS was situated the first time he met John and Gillian. (COMIC: The Klepton Parasites)

The bubble universe that the Eleventh Doctor once landed in had a TARDIS junkyard, a home to dead TARDISes whose Time Lord masters were lured into the universe by House. The Doctor managed to reconstruct a control console using the parts. (TV: The Doctor's Wife)

The wardrobe that caused fear and panic throughout London was in a junkyard. (TV: Fear Itself)
