|TARDIS swimming pool|
|Place of origin:||The Doctor's TARDIS|
|First seen in:||The Invasion of Time|
|Appearances:||TV: Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS, COMIC: After Life, COMIC: Four Dimensions|
The swimming pool was a feature of the Doctor's TARDIS in several of its iterations.
The Seventh Doctor once jettisoned the TARDIS' pool due to leakage, which Mel found bothersome as she wanted to go swimming at the time. (TV: Paradise Towers) He later restored the pool, and used it to brew bootleg beer in order to infiltrate 1929 Chicago's gangster subculture. Ace failed to appreciate the state of the pool when she wanted to swim, nor did she appreciate the Doctor's joke that swimming in the beer would "give it added body." (PROSE: Blood Harvest)
When Izzy Sinclair had her body temporarily swapped with that of the alien Destrii, Izzy had to occasionally use the Eighth Doctor's swimming pool to keep Destrii's amphibious body alive. (COMIC: Beautiful Freak)
When he first met Amy Pond near Easter 1996, the Eleventh Doctor was soaked because - as he explained to her - he had just climbed out of the pool which had fallen into the TARDIS' library during the crash. After the TARDIS finished repairing itself, the Doctor mentioned that he wasn't sure where the swimming pool was now and suggested that it was possibly in the wardrobe. (TV: The Eleventh Hour)
The Doctor took Alice Obiefune to the pool during her first visit on the TARDIS. She mistook several creatures swimming in the water for goldfish and the Doctor explained that they were actually "a highly aquatic alien race whose world was destroyed," one of whom was named Reg. Later, Alice witnessed the Kharitite and its owner, a giant adolescent walking squid, playing together in the pool. (COMIC: After Life)
The Doctor landed the TARDIS against a partially constructed skyscraper in July 1969, with its exterior oriented face-up. He then instructed Amy to open the doors all the way to the swimming pool. A moment later, River Song dove from several stories above into the pool, breaking her fall. Her impact was sufficient that some water splashed even beyond the exterior doors. This was done to fake River's death in the eyes of the Silence. (TV: Day of the Moon)
