This is a really interesting idea!

The Fortress that is bigger on the inside is a good stand-alone idea; allowing it to move really changes things.  I wonder how easy it is to move the tardis and achieve instant checkmate?

One suggestion: shouldn't the main board, instead of being H-shaped, be a rectangle?  At the start of the game, 9x2 squares would be covered by the two tardises--functionally the same as your setup.  However, when a tardis moves, there would still be squares where the tardis started.  It makes more sense to me.

Now, now, I did specify a 'completely empty 3x3 block of non-Tardis cells' - although I have now highlighted it in response.

...So what happens if you stick a Tardis inside another Tardis? :P
