information from The Infinity Doctors and some of Cold Fusion

? The event occurred approximately in this interval.
?? A pretty wild guess as to when this event took place.


While I hesitate to call Craig a close friend (we hadn’t done more then debate continuity for over a year) I was very sad to learn of his death. For me Craig was…

*An Idol: He routinely did what I only dreamed of – wrote Doctor Who novels. And he was friends with people like Andy Lane, Justin Richards, and Gary Russell and if that isn’t sitting among the gods…..

*A Friend: He cheered me up when I was down and vice versa. He mention my wife and me in the text and the acknowledgments of “Synthespians[TM].” And for a few mad weeks we were both planning on attending each others weddings!

*A Mentor: He proof read my early drafts of the TARDIS Technical Index and told me that it should be something better and nicer then just another page on my rather sloppy website.

*An Advocate: He had several conversations with Justin Richards of BBC Books about getting the TARDIS Technical Index published.

* A Writing Partner: I test read and offered suggestions for “Excelis Decays.” The fact that he took many of these suggestions to heart gave me some small chance to affect the creation of licensed Dr. Who direction – something which will always be a high point in my life.

The Lord Presidents of Gallifrey
(Updated 8/6/08!)

The number next to the name indicates how many Presidents Gallifrey has had at this point. The notes that follow outline how they gained power and how they lost it. For more details do a word search in the appropriate timeline.

Rassilon - 1
Rassilon (full name Rassil Onasti Prydonius) is a member of the Prydon Chapter. He is probably comes from the House of Fordfarding. Took power from the 508th Pythia in year -23.96.

149,750 after fighting off the Sybarils. At only 330 years old, Tegorak is the youngest Time Lord to serve as President. In the year 149,800 the Matrix Lords (led by Rassilon) trap Tegorak to prevent his conquest of all the systems of the Kasterborus Sector.

Mundat III - ??
Mundat III had worked his way up from the Chancellery guard. He might have been an

Pandorastrumnelliahanfloriana (formerly known as Pengallia) - ??

99,000 years before the Doctor is born.

Borusa - 408
The Prydonian Borusa becomes
President when the Doctor is 759 years old. Borusa plots to become President Eternal. When the Doctor is about 849 years old Borusa plays the Game of Rassilon and is turned into living immortal stone.

The Doctor - 409
After Borusa is removed The High Council exercises its emergency powers and elects the Doctor as the new President when he is about 849 years old. He names Chancellor Flavia is named Acting-President before he leaves Gallifrey. The Doctor is deposed for neglecting his duties 6 years later.

In preperation for the coming Time War she decrees the implementation of the Nine Homeworld Project when the Doctor is 1056 years old. Each of these nine clones of Gallifrey has its own President who appear to believe that they are ruling the original Gallifrey. Romana's sudden absence from the other Homeworlds is explained by a hasty resignation.


Valerian - 414
Valerian become President of a Gallifrey.

Romanadvoratrelundar - 415
When the Doctor is 1082 years old Romana returns to the original Gallifrey and resums her position as President. She is given the title War Queen of Gallifrey.

recplaims the Presidency from Romana. The Matrix is completely taken over by the Paradox Virus and Gallifrey is conquered by the Faction Paradox.

The Doctor - N/A
A paradox filled version of the Doctor (aka Grandfather Paradox) from 292 years in the future travels back in time and conquers Gallifrey for the Faction Paradox.

Romana is elected President of the Gallifrey located in the Kasterborous Sector. At the time of Romana’s Election the roles of President and Chancellor are combined. She implements many changes to Gallifrey including ending its isolationism. Given that one of the major reasons of the Nine Homeworlds Project is to protect the original Gallifrey by providing potential decoy, it is unlikely that the Kasterborous Gallifrey is the original Gallifrey. Only a few weeks after her election Roman (and 300 other Time Lords) are kidnapped by the Daleks.

The President - 414
A former President is appointed President of Romana's Gallifrey during her 20 year absence.

Pandorastrumnelliahanfloriana (Pandora) - 416
After escaping the Matrix, Pandor leads a coup and assums the presidency when the Doctor is 1081 year old. This starts a civil war on Gallifrey. A few months later Romana's bodyguard Leela kills Pandora's body and Romana deletes the Matrix to kill Pandora's mind.

Valyestreandurnomar - N/A
Lord Valyes assumes the position of Acting-President while Romana recovers from the Civil War. After a vote of no-confidence Romana steps down as Lady President and names her third incarnation as her successor. However Darkel has Romana imprisoned and Matthias and Darkel both declare themselves canidates for the Presidential Election. The Emergency High Council has all of President Romana's actions since Pandora escaped (Relative Date 17-11-9-0-1.557) recinded. This means that Braxiatal is now Chancellor once again. He claims the position of Lord President of Gallifrey.

Irving Braxiatel - 417
Chancellor Braxiatel (formerly of the House of Lungbarrow) becomes President by default since Romana has been inprisoned.
Brax tricks Darkel into killing herself and then steps down, naming Matthias as his successor to be the next Lord President of Gallifey.

Matthiascivandren - 417
Former Vice-President Matthias becomes President after Brax names him is successor. By this point a huge percentage of the population has been infected by the dogma virus. The only cure is to
deactivate the symbiotic nuclie of everyone on Gallifrey - the end of the Time Lords. Roman travels to the original Gallifrey and resumes power.

At some point during the Time War this Gallifrey is destroyed.


The Head of the Presidency - 414
On Gallifrey VIII

Umbaste opens his biodata to the Eye of Harmony in an attempt to gain a vision of the future. After a year in a fugue-state he repeated the word “One” again and again for several days and then disintegrated himself.

The War King - 416
When the Doctor is 1146
the High Council erases all records of the Master’s criminal activities and appoint him to be the new President. The Master (aka Koschie of the Prydonian House of Oakdown) is inaugurated as Lord President of Gallifrey - War King of the Nine Gallifreys. Centuries later, after witnessing the Dalek Emperor taking control of the Cruciform, the Master flees the Time War and travels to the year 10,000,000,000,000 AD. He uses a Chameleon Arch to make himself human, taking thename Professor Yana.
