A Time Scoop (alternatively spelled Timescoop) was a device which could be aimed at any point in time and space, and then lift people or things to a different point in time and space.
Borusa used the Time Scoop to transport people and items to the Death Zone on Gallifrey. The Time Scoop transported several of the Doctor's incarnations there, and also transported enemies of his, including a Dalek, Cybermen, and Yeti. (TV: The Five Doctors) Renegade Time Lord Ryoth attempted to use the Time Scoop against the Fifth and Eighth Doctors, but they were able to turn it against him by setting up a Temporal Reverse Feedback Field that sent the Drashig he attempted to unleash against them to the Time Scoop itself, the Drashig destroying the Time Scoop and eating Ryoth before the other Time Lords sent it to the Death Zone via transmat (PROSE: Roses, PROSE: The Eight Doctors, AUDIO: Panacea)
Another Time Scoop was created by Professor Whitaker to transport dinosaurs from prehistory to the 1970s in order to force an evacuation of London. He planned to use the device to create a stable field around London, while the rest of the planet would be returned to a time when it was purer and hadn't been almost destroyed by the creations of man. His plan was foiled when the Doctor stopped the machine, but it accidentally sent Whitaker and his assistant Charles Grover back to an unknown time. (TV: Invasion of the Dinosaurs)
