The 'heart' or 'soul' of the TARDIS has been mentioned since the 5th Doctor (or perhaps earlier). Davison was once grounded when it was removed.

The Matrix has been about even longer although as far as I'm aware it was where Time Lord knowledge was stored. There's an amusing Tom Baker episode where he runs about inside the Matrix (a quarry, naturally). Not sure what it's doing in the TARDIS but it has never been 'numbers on a grid' in the programme.

Agree with you though on the use of deus ex machina. The last couple of years haven't been as bad for it though. Having said that, it's always been the case - John Pertwee had a fondness for 'reversing the polarity of the neutron flow' and everything was alright again.

Well, watched last nights episode and sort of worked out River Song's identity when we discovered the baby was called Melody, but I think its just getting a bit silly now!  (and what's with the break? at the end it says its not on again until the Autumn?!)
