    That's the hypothesis sorted, now for the evidence supporting it...


    Also, "screwdriver" doesn't really do it justice. It's a multi-tool with a psychic interface. [I'm going to say it access' nerves in the hand and parses brain activity to understand the intended outcome.]

    Universal Translators not a cop out, its a plot device so that we don't have to put up with sub titles and actors pretending to speak klingon or high elvish.

    so are the sonic screwdriver and psycic paper its a quick way of doing something that dosent rate screen time (or where screentime could be better used) as we dont need to see for instance breaking down 20 doors when the sonic screwdrivers can open them all in 10 seconds. Ditto ppsycic paper id imagine he could "blag" his way in most of the time but its not that interesting to watch so psycic paper means you can just cut that bit out

    1) TARDIS has living metal doodahs
    2) Metal doodahs make what you need
    3) ???
    4) Charge SSD from TARDIS console [with high capacity battery pack]


    Also, future tech battery life can't be judged by current tech standards.

    It could also be symbiotic [Hey, the TARDIS is alive!] and use bio-electricity.

    It is, but the Eye Of Harmony is a "an exploding star in the process of becoming a black hole suspended in a permanent state of decay".

    So everyone is right
