  • E-Space, or Exo-space, is another universe connected to our own by Charged Vacuum Emboitments, through which entropy is vented from N-Space or Normal-Space to stave off the heat death of the universe. It contains its own planets, including Adric's home world, Alzarius.
  • The Fifth Galaxy is the domain of Zephon, Master of the Fifth Galaxy, in the story The Daleks' Master Plan. It is unknown if this is the same as Galaxy 5, who are at war with the Federation in The Monster of Peladon.
  • Galaxy 4 - the location of the Drahvins' home planet in the story Galaxy 4.
  • The Horsehead Nebula is a real nebula that Russell T Davies said was the general area of the home planet of the Ood, Oodsphere . In the story "Planet of the Ood" it is mentioned that Sense-Sphere (from The Sensorites) is a near neighbour and therefore presumably also part of the nebula. In The Sarah Jane Adventures story Warriors of Kudlak, this was said to be the location of the Ghost Wars, which had lasted for hundreds of years between an alien race known as the Uvodni and another alien race known as the Malakh until 10 years ago, when a peace treaty was finally established between the two races.
  • The Isop Galaxy is the location of Vortis, The Web Planet. In the episode Bad Wolf, the Face of Boe is said to be the oldest inhabitant of the Isop Galaxy.
  • Magla is mentioned in Destiny of the Daleks. Magla is actually a giant space creature that is rolled up in a ball, often mistaken for a planet.
  • Medusa Cascade An Interuniversal Rift, also a space-time rift. The Master mentions that the Doctor sealed the rift here in "Last of the Time Lords". It is mentioned to have a "15th broken moon" in "The Sontaran Stratagem". In "The Stolen Earth", it is where Davros and his Daleks have assembled their 27 stolen planets around Davros' Crucible.
  • The Moon is a natural Terrestrial satellite. In Smith and Jones, a hospital was temporarily transported there. From the 21st century onwards it is the location of a number of scientific outposts, such as a weather control centre (The Moonbase) and a Transmat hub (The Seeds of Death). In the 26th century it had a prison for political prisoners (Frontier in Space). The Moon was destroyed in the far future in the Doctor Who Magazine comic strip "Wormwood."
  • N-Space, or Normal-space, is our universe, where heat death should have already occurred, but for the Logopolitans' creation of the CVEs to shunt the excess entropy into other universes, including E-space. Unless otherwise noted, all planets listed are in N-Space.
  • A Parallel Earth was visited by the Third Doctor in Inferno. Another, presumably different Parallel Earth (later given the name Pete's World by the Doctor) was visited by the Tenth Doctor, Rose and Mickey in the episodes "Rise of the Cybermen", "The Age of Steel", "Doomsday" and "Journey's End".
  • Silfrax Galaxy is the location of the Vespiform hives. Mentioned in The Unicorn And The Wasp.
  • The Silver Devastation is a place mentioned to be the origin of the Face of Boe in "The End of the World". It is also where Professor Yana (the Master in human disguise) claims to have been found as an orphan in "Utopia". It is uncertain whether this is a planet, a region of a planet or a region of space. It is presumably in the Isop Galaxy (see above), although the galaxies are said to have collapsed by the time of the episode "Utopia".
  • Terminus is not a planet, but a planet-sized spacecraft that caused the Big Bang and lies at the centre of the universe. Its engines are capable of causing another explosion that will end the universe, and the radiation leaking from them is the cure for Lazar's Disease.
  • The Time Vortex is the continuum that time machines travel through on the way from one destination to another.
  • The Void is the name given by the Time Lords to the infinite nothingness between dimensions; even time does not exist in the Void. According to the Doctor in "Army of Ghosts", Eternals call it the Howling, and some others call it Hell. It is traversable only using a void ship or also a TARDIS before the events of the Time War (Rise of the Cybermen). In the series 4 finale the void would had been crushed and destroyed along with all the Daleks and Cybermen in it when the parallel universes all came together, but it was re-made.
