Splinx

From Tardis Wiki, the free Doctor Who reference

Splinx was a robot cat from Ulrick Neobium who assisted the Sixth Doctor in the Mines of Terror on Rijar.

In another reality, Splinx traveled with a version of the Doctor known as "the Wanderer." (AUDIO: The Key To Key To Time)

Abilities[[edit]]

Splinx was completely programmable by the Doctor, and had a number of abilities with which to assist him.

Splinx was able to fetch and store items larger than herself, thanks to a dimensionally transcendental hyperspace load module. She and the items she carried could remain undetectable to other creatures and proximity sensors. The Doctor possessed location markers he could leave in various places, to which Splinx could always find her way back.

Splinx was powered by Ulrick Neobium energiser cells, which needed to be recharged at external power points from time to time. (GAME: Doctor Who and the Mines of Terror)

Behind the scenes[[edit]]

  • As with many games of this type and era, in-game narrative is minimal. Most of what is known about Splinx comes from the game's enclosed instruction book.
  • Splinx is a fairly logical counterpart to K9, albeit a cat instead of a dog and a "she" instead of a "he". Her basic functions in the game are to explore the map and fetch and carry items for the Doctor, who can only carry a limited amount in his pockets.
