Type 70, also known as Mark 70, was a type of TARDIS used by Time Lords and more advanced than the Type 40. The Fifth Doctor noted that a Type 70 TARDIS could break through a temporal distortion grid, whereas his own Type 40 could not. (AUDIO: Singularity)

Robert Knox owned a Mark 70, which could be voice controlled allowing Knox to guide his ship by voice alone as well as turning on the scanner, or summoning a lift installed, and the TARDIS responded in a calm female voice. He purchased it from a Nekkistani on Gryben. The TARDIS was able to run system checks to detect faults and report them verbally for their pilots, and could be switched to manual control, though the Sixth Doctor had problems operating the controls since it was a more advanced model than the TARDIS he was used too. (AUDIO: Medicinal Purposes, Assassin in the Limelight)
