The TARDIS (Idris/Sexy) would be aware of future control rooms the Doctor hasn't experienced yet. Simples.

Idris doesn't experience things in a linear time line, she can see all of time and space at once. So she knows what control rooms the Doctor is going to decide on in the future.

I think it's definitely a new idea that the TARDIS can see its own personal future, rather than just time and space generally. But yeah, it was just a nicely placed timey-wimey device that helped explain that the TARDIS deliberately drops the Doctor into warzones and invasions because it knows that's where he needs to go.

He's only been through half a dozen or so desktops in 11 lifetimes, 30 is more than enough.

Is the Tardis a Sirius Cybernetics Corporation Lift?

It's all open to interpretation, but we're on the 9th now by my reckoning. But yes, 30 is more than enough!

Or she just hasn't finished archiving yet. Just because she doesn't have to wait for the console room to exist in order to archive it doesn't mean she has archived them all already. She probably archives from time to time but often has other pressing matters to attend to.

Such as:

- Getting blown up by a dying Tenth Doctor
- Getting blown up by Daleks in Journey's End
- Getting blown up by The Silence
- Getting blown up by Captain Jack in Last of the Time Lords

I bet that's what they said about the 12 lives limit!
