The Master's TARDIS in the shape of a Melkur

Melkur was a name given in Trakenite culture to corrupted creatures that were attracted to the planet Traken, the seat of the Traken Union.


Melkur, literally, "a fly trapped in honey". The peaceful atmosphere of Traken rendered them immobile and harmless. There were several Melkurs attracted to Traken, most decayed without causing any long term harm. They were rendered as stone through the imobilisation.


The Melkur that seduced Kassia was more virulent than previous Melkurs and was revealed, shortly after the arrival of the Doctor and Adric, to be the Master's TARDIS. The Master utilised the Melkur form to become Keeper and take control of The Source. (DW: The Keeper of Traken) Nyssa and Tegan saw an illusion of the Melkur intended to frighten them. (DW: Time-Flight)
