A lift was a device used to vertically transport people or goods between the levels of a building.
On Earth Edit
In 1930, Martha Jones attached a long pole at the top of the Empire State Building to a lift. She used this to allow the gamma strike from a solar flare to fry the approaching pig slaves inside the lift. (TV: Evolution of the Daleks)
Mr Thompson was terrified of lifts, having read stories about people who had been killed or injured in lift accidents. He and Joanne were attacked by Saric Warder in a lift in their workplace. (PROSE: Trapped!)
In 2007, when the Tenth Doctor ordered everyone to run up to the top floor of Torchwood Tower to see what the Daleks were doing, Jake Simmonds suggested they could take the lift instead. (TV: Doomsday)
At some point in the 21st century, a wormhole portal was hidden in a lift in a London hospital. It led to the Shakri ship. Rory and his father, Brian Williams, were both captured by orderlies and taken through the portal. The Eleventh Doctor and Amy later discovered in portal in the lift and travelled through it as well. (TV: The Power of Three)
Sometime in the 21st century, Mel and Pex used a lift in Paradise Towers to try to get to floor 304. However, the cleaners overrode the controls and had the lift alternate between floors 173 and [[floor 174. |174]]. Pex kicked the controls and the lift plummeted to the basement. There, they managed to get it working again and made it to floor 304. (TV: Paradise Towers)
On other worlds Edit
The lifts at New New York Hospital on New Earth disinfected their occupants, as the Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler discovered, much to the latter's dismay. Lady Cassandra and Chip took over the lift for Cassandra to take over Rose's body. Later, the Doctor and Cassandra used the disinfectant spray to cure the new humans. (TV: New Earth)
In the Dalek City on Skaro, the First Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Susan escaped from their imprisonment by the Daleks in a lift. They threw a sculpture down the shaft to destroy the lift and the pursuing Daleks. (TV: "The Ambush")
The lifts inside Kaalann on Skaro were broken down before the Daleks returned to the planet with the Eye of Time and rebuilt their race. This was undone when the Eleventh Doctor and Amy travelled through the Eye and stopped the Daleks before they could harness the Eye. (GAME: City of the Daleks)
Spaceships and space stations Edit
Around the 27th century, when the stairwells on the Empress collapsed following a bombing, Benny Summerfield and Grand Marshall Sstac took a malfunctioning lift to the ninth floor. Inside, Benny and Sstac experienced memories of the Kolgarian delegates, Musjarna and Asnarbi. When they came to, they climbed the maintenance ladder in the shaft to the tenth floor.
