Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.



Limbo, also known as the limbo dimensions, was a realm which physically looked like a White Void. The Trickster was generally limited to limbo, only able to manifest himself in the normal universe fleetingly. His Graske also had access to Limbo, and could materialise and dematerialise in Limbo or reality at will.

The Trickster sent Sarah Jane Smith to Limbo when she was removed from time. Maria Jackson was also sent here. (TV: Whatever Happened to Sarah Jane?) He later put Sarah Jane and the Tenth Doctor, Luke, Rani, Clyde and K9 in Limbo. He put Sarah Jane in a time differently looped than the others. (TV: The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith)
