Temporal Drift

While in Hover Mode a TARDIS can be set for Temporal Drift by disabling the Relative Drift Compensators and engaging the Stasis Switch. This will cause a TARDIS to move forwards in time at a rate of 50 years a second. Though a TARDIS is not fully rematerialized in N-Space, the Scanner can still be used to observe the effects of the passage of time outside the vessel. If a malfunction caused a TARDIS's Lateral Drift Compensators to activate the ship could drift away from the current time zone without its operator on board.
