Wormhole

You may be looking for the comic story.

A wormhole was a passage which linked two separate points in space-time, usually serving as a shortcut between those two points allowing two distant points to be drawn together closer. Wormholes could also form between universes in the same multiverse.

Features[]

Wormholes would disintegrate organic matter. The only way to survive a journey through the wormhole was with a metal shield enclosing the occupants, acting as a Faraday cage. They could also be used as two-way travel. (TV: Planet of the Dead)

Vodium naturally produced energy which created micro-wormholes. (AUDIO: Situation Vacant)

The interior of wormholes, through which interstellar travel could be made, was called "worm space". (AUDIO: Nekromanteia)

(TV: Spyfall) She would later receive the same vision at the hands of Zellin, albeit this time she herself featured in the vision, watching the child from afar. (TV: Can You Hear Me?) Later the Master explained to the Doctor that these were repressed memories buried deep within all Time Lords, which stemmed from the Doctor's own history as the Timeless Child and the experiments performed on them by the First Tecteun in order to crack the regeneration code and give the Shobogans the ability to regenerate. (TV: The Timeless Children) Tecteun further clarified to the Doctor that the wormhole in question led to Universe Two, which she theorised to possibly be home to the Timeless Child's realm, although the Doctor was not so sure if that was the case.
