Shimmer
Type: Cloaking Device
Place of origin: Vinvocci
Appearance: The End of Time

A shimmer was a cloaking device used by the Vinvocci to change their appearance.

Appearance and function Edit

These devices were disguised as wristwatches and, while effective, were apparently uncomfortable to use. The Tenth Doctor could easily detect a shimmer even when not looking directly at it, as he did when he deactivated Rossiter's shimmer. (TV: The End of Time)

History Edit

Rossiter and Addams picked up a signal from a piece of medical equipment and used shimmers to work undetected for Joshua Naismith. The Doctor deactivated them with his sonic screwdriver. (TV: The End of Time)
