Telepathy was the psychic ability to sense and manipulate thought, which often manifested as mind-to-mind communication. The term could also be used to describe and was often linked to mind-control and certain types of hypnosis.

Telepathy could take varied forms: from an exchange of images, experiences (TV: The Three Doctors), to associated emotions and even mind-to-mind "conversation" between two or more individuals. (AUDIO: Worldwide Web) However, it was possible for a skilled telepath [who?] to monitor the minds of others without being detected. Some species and individuals [which?] could use their telepathy at a distance, but some [which?] needed to be in close proximity and others [which?] needed to touch the subject they wished to "read". Time Lords, for example, tended to be touch-telepaths, but weren't always limited in this fashion. (TV: The Girl in the Fireplace, The Lodger)

TARDISes such as the Doctor's Type 40 had telepathic abilities through dedicated systems known as telepathic circuits. The circuits translated thoughts (TV: Boom Town) and any language for the passengers. (TV: The End of the World, The Fires of Pompeii)

A rare mineral known as matricite could block telepathy. (PROSE: Synthespians™)

On Yemaya 4 in 2257 several human colonists developed telepathic and telekinetic abilities. (PROSE: Sleepy)

The Eleventh Doctor used a headbutt to telepathically transfer a large amount of information, including general background information, to Craig in order to explain why he was there. (TV: The Lodger)
