Known locations of temporal rifts edit
The eruption of the Vesuvius in 79 AD briefly created a time rift, echoing back in time and giving some inhabitants of the city of Pompeii precognitive powers. This rift was created because of the immense power of Vesuvius' eruption, but it opened for only a second. (TV: The Fires of Pompeii)
The Medusa Cascade once had a time rift, which was healed at some point by the Doctor. (TV: Last of the Time Lords, The Stolen Earth) The Eighth Doctor intended to use the Great Key to seal this rift in the Last Great Time War. (COMIC: The Forgotten)
A mobile time rift travelled through Mutter's Spiral, likely from an accident on Heracletus. (PROSE: Zeitgeist) The Third Doctor was eventually able to stop it on Alrakis. (PROSE: ...And Eternity in an Hour)
A time rift opened in the TARDIS itself when it was caught in a salvage ship's magnetic hobble-field. This caused the near past and the near future to start leaking inside the TARDIS. The Eleventh Doctor was able to use the rift to change things by travelling back in time to the moment the TARDIS was caught by the salvage ship and instruct his past counterpart on how to break free. (TV: Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS)
In E-Space, near the Gateway, there was a time rift connecting a past were the Tharils had enslaved a humanoid species and a future when their roles were the opposite. The Fourth Doctor crossed it back and forth. (TV: Warriors' Gate)
