Time rifts, also known as temporal rifts, were weaknesses in space and time through which people or objects could pass from one location in spacetime to another.

Effects

Individuals (TV: Image of the Fendahl, The Unquiet Dead) or even whole species, such as the Owse (PROSE: The Quantum Archangel) developed a degree of time sensitivity or other psychic powers from developing or growing up near a time rift.

On some occasions, the leakage from a time rift would cause things to either age or de-age, sometimes both at the same time. On other occasions, it would simply freeze time. (PROSE: ...And Eternity in an Hour)

Certain rifts could transport living or non-living matter through space and time from one end to another. (TV: Adrift)

Interactions with technology

Technology, such as the Torchwood Institute's Rift Manipulator, could, to a limited degree, control time rifts but inexactly. (TV: Captain Jack Harkness, End of Days, COMIC: Rift War!)

The Doctor's TARDIS could use time rifts to power up. (TV: Boom Town)
