When Amy first became the companion she floated outside the door in space and the doctor explained that the tardis has a forcefield type effect that keeps air around the outside that he had expanded for the express purpose of letting her do that so i assume it would keep the ocean out as well as air in.

In one episode the shields were down when the ship pulled them in mistakenly for debris.
Whould this happen then?

Goddammit tumblr, this is supposed to be one of the like seven things you're good at.
User avatar #17 - Loppytaffy (07/11/2013) [-]
I think if it has shields against the vaccuum of space, it can have shields against the water...
User avatar #56 to #17 - thejokermf (07/11/2013) [-]
That's different though. Space has a vacuum. Deep sea has tons of pressure. The two forces are different, and thus should be treated as different issues.
User avatar #86 to #56 - Loppytaffy (07/12/2013) [-]
It can be at the centre of a star without collapsing, and that's a lot of pressure.
User avatar #63 to #17 - zheclown (07/11/2013) [-]
Unless he forgets to activate the shields again

Funnyjunk knows more about Doctor Who than tumblr does   
This actually makes me proud   
And does anyone have any Classic Who gifs? I need more and Im sick of seeing Tennant and SMith gifs all the time

Look them up. That's what ye old internet is here for.

1) the doc's got a force field, else the opposite would happen when he opened in space
2) if for some unholy reason the doc would want to lower the ocean levels
the tardis is large but not that large
#50 to #48 - Nameloc (07/11/2013) [-]
"not that large"
User avatar #51 to #50 - apocalypticburrito (07/11/2013) [-]
it only contains like
1 garden
main room
a kitchen
20 bedrooms or so
3 pools
and a bunch of other stuff but even so
but the ocean is like 80% of the planet it would take at least 2-3 tardis's to take the water
User avatar #52 to #51 - Nameloc (07/11/2013) [-]
Of the reboot, a few episodes showcase the Tardis being capable of becoming an endless labyrinth.

I'm assuming it's practically endless - However it was take a freaking long time for it to drain the ocean.
User avatar #53 to #52 - apocalypticburrito (07/11/2013) [-]
yeah
or that last episode it expanded to its largest for doc's grave
it was HUUUUUUUUUUUGE but not bigger than the ocean
User avatar #77 to #52 - threadz (07/12/2013) [-]
thousands and thousands of years, unless the force field which keeps air in while in space is reversed to force water in really really fast.
User avatar #59 to #48 - flusteredmoose (07/11/2013) [-]
The tardis can become limitless in size.
User avatar #41 - aabbccddeeffgghhii (07/11/2013) [-]
Nothing would happen. The TARDIS has an invisible shield on the outside so things cant get in/out that aren't meant to be. Thats why you can open the door IN SPACE and survive. These people should ******* know this!
#27 - schrodngrscat (07/11/2013) [-]
Not like it doesn't have that forcefield bubble thing...
#1 - anon (07/11/2013) [-]
To get maximum drainage, the tardis would need to be as low as possible. Assuming the tardis isn't affected by buoyancy and is in a fixed position somewhere at the bottom of the Marianas Trench, and that the tardis nor the doctor are crumpled up like pieces of paper due to the weight, the ocean wouldn't drain that fast.

The tardis has something like a 7 foot tall opening at best? The drainage rate would be insanely slow relative to the size of the ocean,probably barley affecting things farther than a mile away unless it happens to sit still. The surface would be totally unaffected.
(I'm not a Doctor Who fan, I'm just going on what I remember seeing about the show. I was under the assumption that the tardis can flush the water into outer space once it gets full, or that it at least has infinite space on the inside.)



TL;DR Not much would happen besides putting the water and some unlucky fish inside the tardis.
User avatar #83 to #1 - threadz (07/12/2013) [-]
how would those fish be considered Unlucky? They get to see the inside of the TARDIS!

Yeah it would take freakin ages but the main thing is,"Could the doctor hypothetically empty the ocean into the tardis?". Sure it'd take a while but i'm sure it would be absolutely possible
#19 to #4 - anon (07/11/2013) [-]
What if the doctor traveled to the super ocean in space that is lightyears in size? And drained that onto earth? That would be ******* cool
User avatar #25 to #19 - nibxi (07/11/2013) [-]
"lightyears in size" um what
#33 to #25 - gothiczombie (07/11/2013) [-]
Distance. Thus as pokemon teaches his use of the word is basically valid.
User avatar #44 to #33 - nibxi (07/11/2013) [-]
Great use of an image, i mean it as in "an ocean thats light years in size?" mmk
User avatar #46 to #44 - gothiczombie (07/11/2013) [-]
Oh, sorry about that.
#72 - themoondog (07/12/2013) [-]
it has a shied? it works in space so y not under water.
User avatar #66 - srskate (07/12/2013) [-]
The tardis is just bigger, not necessarily infinite.
User avatar #75 to #66 - threadz (07/12/2013) [-]
Yes it is. He said so. It's the biggest ship in the universe
User avatar #70 to #66 - chocolatepuppy (07/12/2013) [-]
the ocean isnt infinite
User avatar #71 to #70 - srskate (07/12/2013) [-]
fair response
User avatar #64 - dragonzard (07/11/2013) [-]
If the doctor can open the door in space without losing air levels, I highly doubt that anything else could go in or out, Including water. Also, the TARDIS isn't infinite inside, it has an end.
User avatar #76 to #64 - threadz (07/12/2013) [-]
It is infinite. He said so.
User avatar #68 to #64 - LookinHereWhy ONLINE (07/12/2013) [-]
I doubt the shields can't be deactivated.
#29 - pacoseago (07/11/2013) [-]
It's like Narnia
User avatar #10 - trollmobile ONLINE (07/11/2013) [-]
if it can protect him from the vacum of space, it can protect him from water.
User avatar #9 - blasthardcheese (07/11/2013) [-]
This is a race that ******* grew time machines!
Don't you think they'd have planned ahead?
User avatar #81 to #9 - threadz (07/12/2013) [-]
why did you cross out grow? the did grow TARDISs.
User avatar #82 to #81 - threadz (07/12/2013) [-]
But from the poll of 11 Doctors, I can say that they don't plan ahead.
User avatar #87 to #81 - blasthardcheese (07/12/2013) [-]
I meant to underline...
#7 - anon (07/11/2013) [-]
The tradis can repel Lazers, the vacuum of ******* space, and can keep a sun in place.

Why the **** do you think it couldn't handle the pressure of an ocean?
User avatar #8 to #7 - frostsalamander (07/11/2013) [-]
because it would pour through the open doors o.O

but it got this kind of shield so that it can ''repel'' the vakume(?) of space and i think it would work for water too in a way... maybe like a bubble?
#42 to #8 - joshofsouls (07/11/2013) [-]
How in the hell did you misspell ******* VACUUM, it was in the comment you're replying to!
User avatar #84 to #42 - frostsalamander (07/12/2013) [-]
i have concentration like a little **** ..
User avatar #3 - tannerninja (07/11/2013) [-]
The water wouldn't go in due to the wibbly wobbly-ness or the tardis. If air does not get vacuumed out in the middle of space then I doubt that water would be able to make it in.
#21 - rochal (07/11/2013) [-]
A seriously stupid question would be a better title. the tardis has a ******* dying star preserved in a permanent state of decay being used as a source of limitless ******* power. i think it can handle some ******* water.
User avatar #15 - strangemoo ONLINE (07/11/2013) [-]
No. Gravity fields around it and stuff.
#12 - anon (07/11/2013) [-]
Coincidentally, xkcd's "What If?" section recently answered a question like this. If I remember correctly, it said it would take years upon years to drain.
#13 - captainwow (07/11/2013) [-]
What would happen if you put all the Dr. Who fans at the bottom of the ocean?

Would they hold their breath and swim to the top? Or drown because they were all talking about how this is just like a Dr. Who thread they were just talking about on Tumblr?
User avatar #80 to #13 - threadz (07/12/2013) [-]
They would implode because 10.911km (deepest confirmed point of the ocean) of water is very very heavy.
User avatar #55 - jellywarthog (07/11/2013) [-]
what-if.xkcd.com/
This my help answer it.
#60 to #55 - someoneforamoment (07/11/2013) [-]
Damn Dutch. Taking over the world.
