Law was a system of rules to regulate behaviour.
The Seventh Doctor believed that one should follow native laws as what was right and wrong varied depending on the local norms. He, Roz Forrester and Chris Cwej criticised black letter law for not taking into account different circumstances or the severity of the impact on the public. (AUDIO: The Trial of a Time Machine)
Examples[edit | edit source]
On Thrantas, any and all sentient beings could be prosecuted for their actions, including TARDISes. An act may or may not be illegal depending on its impact on the public. The Magistrum was in charge of all law and order on the planet until the Seventh Doctor, Roz Forrester and Chris Cwej released it. (AUDIO: The Trial of a Time Machine)
