    That's pretty cool. Surprised they didn't put the TARDIS down as -374 years or something, since it can arrive before it set off

    It's wrong though ...... the Tardis could actually get there before it set off!

    But time still passes for those in The Tardis. If The Doctor's watch says 15:00:00 at take off it could say something like 15:00:03.

    I object...millenium falcon can only go half past the speed of light....Starship enterprise at various warp speeds...

    Warp 1 is one times the speed of light.
    Warp 2 is ten times the speed of light.
    Warp 5 is 214 times the speed of light.
    Warp 8 is 1,000 times the speed of light.
    Warp 9 is 1,516 times the speed of light.
    Warp 9.6 is 1,909 times the speed of light.
    Warp 9.9 is 3,053 times the speed of light.
    Warp 9.99 is 7,912 times the speed of light.
    Warp 9.9999 is 199,516 times the speed of light.

    It will reach the centre of the milky way in a few months, andromeda galaxy in a few years

    Red Dwarf with it's hydrogen based fuel system means it can run forever. Which is just as well, as it takes forever to get anywhere
