Time bubble, as it was spelt in Mindwarp, The Crystal Bucephalus and The Eight Doctors

Talk about it here.

A time bubble (PROSE: Mindwarp, The Crystal Bucephalus, The Eight Doctors) alternatively stylised as Time Bubble (AUDIO: The World Tree) and also called a stasis bubble, was a pocket dimension, (PROSE: The Crystal Bucephalus) a four-dimensional sphere (AUDIO: The Eternal Summer) that occurred when an individual met their past or future self under certain circumstances, or by intervention of the Time Lords. A bubble resulted in time being frozen save for the individual who caused it or, in reverse, frozen only for the individual who was trapped in it. The bubble would quickly deteriorate and normal time would resume.[additional sources needed]
