Teleportation was a form of matter transmission and could be either a process of physical/psychological will or a technological one.
Supernatural teleportation Edit
The Kitlings and those affected by the Cheetah World could teleport from their home to hunt, and then return through what was a physical (or possibly psychological or instinctual) process. The ability could also be transferred as Ace, Midge, the Master and the Seventh Doctor all acquired the ability. It was not permanent in the majority of those who were affected. (TV: Survival)
The Eight Legs of Metebelis III could also teleport, both themselves and the humans that they hung onto, most likely through the psychic link that was developed between the Eight Legs and the human. (TV: Planet of the Spiders)
Technological teleportation Edit
Many species and civilisations had teleportation technology. In general, a signal was needed for the teleport to work. The signal needed to be broadcast close to the person or item being teleported. The signal could also be reworked to teleport a person back after they had teleported away. (TV: The End of the World, Boom Town) Teleportation, when power was low, could result in an incomplete transfer, causing part of units to fail to materialise. (PROSE: The Pirate Loop) Teleportation tended to leave behind an energy residue and a distinctive tang in the air. (PROSE: Something in the Water)
Human teleportation Edit
In 1942, Professor Pierre Vedrun, having been forced to conduct teleportation experiments for the Nazis, invented a device which could also transport people through time as well as space. It was destroyed in an RAF air raid. (COMIC: Timebenders)
In the mid-21st century, the T-Mat system was developed. (TV: The Seeds of Death) In the aftermath of the invasion and the Thousand Day War, the T-Mat network was replaced by the Interstitial Mass Transit System. (PROSE: Transit)
In the 51st century, Father Octavian and his clerics had teleportation devices that created an effect similar to that of a whirlwind when the teleport was in use. (TV: The Time of Angels / Flesh and Stone) The Clockwork Droids of the same era also used a short-range teleporter (TV: The Girl in the Fireplace) The Time Agency vortex manipulator also had teleportation capabilities. (TV: The Sound of Drums)
Other species Edit
Other than time-space travel, Time Lords could use a simple teleportation technology, called transduct. For example, they used it to move the Doctor's TARDIS from outside the Capitol to the museum of Citadel. (TV: The Deadly Assassin) Transmat was in their availability too. (TV: The Five Doctors (TV story))
The planet Sto (or at least Max Capricorn Cruiseliners) had a form of teleportation. Its range was at least enough to teleport from a ship in orbit to the Earth's surface. It used bracelets, which could detect whether any mishap had befallen the wearer, and could signal the system to hold the molecules of the wearer in stasis as a safety feature. The wearer could then be brought back to the ship, provided that their pattern had been stored in the buffers. (TV: Voyage of the Damned)
The Linktons could teleport across truly vast, inter-galactic distances. Their technology required gold for power. They once attempted to invade Victorian era London with it, but were repelled by the Fourth Doctor and Leela. (PROSE: The Living Wax)
The Daleks had a method of teleportation which they called Emergency temporal shift. Interestingly it appeared that only members of the Cult of Skaro were able to use this ability. (TV: Doomsday, Evolution of the Daleks) The Daleks had a teleport in the Dalek Asylum that only has enough power for one travel to somewhere in close range. The Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, and Rory Williams use it to travel from the exploding asylum to the TARDIS in the Parliament of the Daleks. (TV: Asylum of the Daleks)
The Silurian Ark also had a teleportation system, which was later controlled by Solomon. The Eleventh Doctor, Rory, and Brian Williams were teleported to a part of the ship resembling a beach. (TV: Dinosaurs on a Spaceship)
The Fleshkind had pendants which allowed them to teleport, these pendants seemed to have a considerably long range as Miss Myers was able to use one to transport herself from the Fleshkind homeworld in the eye of the Tornado Nebula to Earth. (TV: Sky)
