In The Dalek Invasion of Earth the Daleks use flying saucers for transport and to scout for human resistance. "Bad Wolf" and "The Parting of the Ways" also feature saucer-shaped Dalek motherships. These variants possess enough firepower to crumple the continents of Earth in little time. The Dalek Emperor's "flag-ship" is several times the size of a regular ship and carries missiles. A different design of Dalek mothership seen in the Seventh Doctor serial Remembrance of the Daleks is described as being able to crack the Earth open like an egg.
The Crucible is powered by a core of Z-Neutrino Energy, which manifests itself as a massive star-like fireball. The station has many levels, including the bridge manned by the Supreme Dalek and a prison ("The Vault") where both Davros and the insane Dalek Caan are kept.
It is the main feature of the episodes "Army of Ghosts" and "Doomsday", along with the invasion of Earth by the Cybermen. Most of the episodes take place within one of the Torchwood Institute buildings, a main base of which is supposedly Canary Wharf Tower. After disgorging its contents, the Genesis Ark is sucked in to the void, along with all the Daleks it released.
In The Time Warrior, a Sontaran warrior named Linx crashed his spaceship on Middle Age Earth where he is forced to make repairs. Kidnapping scientists from the 20th century using an osmic projector and hypnotising them, Linx has his ship repaired. However, he is shot dead as he prepares to take off and falls on his controls triggering the launch mechanism prematurely. The ship explodes destroying the castle in which it had been sheltered along with it.
In The Sontaran Experiment, a Sontaran named Styre landed on Earth to experiment on human astronauts ahead of a Sontaran invasion. Under the Doctor's instruction, Harry Sullivan removed a component from the ship's energizer as the Doctor fought Styre. When Styre returned to his ship to recharge his energy, the sabotaged energizer drained Styre as opposed to feeding him, causing Styre to shrivel, and the ship to explode soon afterwards.
Sontaran battlecraft are seen again in The Two Doctors.
The Sontaran ships in "The Sontaran Stratagem", an episode in series 4 remain very true to the original design, but the spherical pod now sports extra armaments a slightly different cris-cross patttern, and a viewing port at the front. Unlike earlier designs, these pods seem to be completely spherical.
First seen in The Sontaran Stratagem orbiting above earth, the mothership is a large spherical shape with an external 'claw-like' structure added on. Around the middle it contains numerous docking ports for sontaran battle pods. The Doctor states that it has the power to 'destroy the earth with one blow'. The interior is similar to the pod, but obviously expanded.
Webstars are shaped like eight-pointed stars, though the design of the two ships is inconsistent. Both are covered in a substance that resembles spider webbing. The Empress' ship can discharge energy bolts from its points. The Empress' ship is destroyed over London by tank shells per orders from Mr. Saxon.
The Slitheen craft was owned by the Slitheen. This was the very spaceship that crashed into Big Ben and destroyed two faces. The tower was seen to have a scaffold around it in subsequent episodes, but the unbroken faces were apparently still working. In the Doctor Who Confidential which goes with this episode, "I Get a Side-Kick Out of You", it is revealed that the shot was actually reversed for broadcast. It was filmed as if the ship came from screen left, with the impact being on the ship's left wing. In broadcast it was reversed. If viewed in slow motion you can see the roman numerals on the clockface are indeed backwards. The Slitheen used this event as a diversion for their larger plans, mainly destroying the Earth for money.
Platform One is the space station orbiting Earth carrying the rich and affluent of the universe, staying to view the sun expansion and the destruction of the Earth in the year 5 billion. It is staffed by the blue-skinned Steward and his support staff and is extremely luxurious. Within it are rooms for the guests, a huge cooling room and the Manchester Suite (containing various exhibits from Earth's past) where the guests assembled to view the earth's demise.
The Doctor made several modifications to Bessie during his time at UNIT. These were an anti-theft force field (The Ambassadors of Death), a remote control (The Dæmons) and a minimum inertia hyperdrive. (The Time Monster).
A hovercraft-type vehicle that was also capable of flight, used by the Third Doctor in the serials Invasion of the Dinosaurs and Planet of the Spiders. The vehicle was also known as Alien, but was only ever referred to as "my car" by the Doctor in the television series. However, it is popularly referred to as the Whomobile. The vehicle was specially commissioned by and was the property of Jon Pertwee, and was not seen in the programme again after he left it.
The Valiant was a UNIT controlled airbourne aircraft carrier similar to Cloudbase in Gerry Anderson's Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons series, or Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. As the craft operates in international airspace under the control of the United Nations, it is neutral territory. It was designed in part by the Master in the guise of Harold Saxon (in his previous occupation as Minister of Defence). Elements of the design make reference to Time Lord architecture, such as roundels and an insignia based on a Gallifreyan design. It is also equipped with a scaled down version of the Torchwood weapon that destroyed the Sycorax ship in "The Christmas Invasion"; however, since it is mounted on the ship's underbelly, it can only fire at surface targets, as opposed to the surface-to-air or surface-to-space aim of the ground-based Torchwood version.
It was first featured in "The Sound of Drums"/"Last of the Time Lords". As the United Nations requires that the British Government move first contact operations from British soil to neutral territory, the US Government forces Mr. Saxon to make contact with the Toclafane on board. It is then used by the Master as a mobile headquarters during his rule of Earth. In "The Poison Sky", the Valiant aids UNIT in their counterattack on the Sontaran forces occupying the ATMOS factory. By hovering over the factory, the carrier is able to clear the poisonous gas surrounding the area with the powerful downdraft of the vehicle's engines. It also fires upon the factory to commence the attack on the Sontaran forces, using the Jathaa sunglider technology recovered by the Torchwood Institute.
It appeared again in "The Stolen Earth", in which it was shown being attacked by Dalek forces. It is then stated in the next scene that it had been lost.
