An oblate spheroid was a geometric shape which the Fourth Doctor used to describe the planet Calufrax. (TV: The Pirate Planet)

Behind the scenes Edit

The Doctor never actually explains what an oblate spheroid is. However, the model for the miniaturised Calufrax does conform roughly to the shape of a real-life oblate spheroid.
