Dora was the President of Earth in 2540. She led the People's Party.

Biography[]

Dora (AUDIO: The Transcendence of Ephros) led the People's Party. As President of Earth, she was closely advised by Earth's primary military officer, General John Williams, (PROSE: Doctor Who and the Space War) with whom she had once been friends. (TV: Frontier in Space)

In 2520, Dora served as a senator's aide on a peace initiative that ended in Williams inadvertently beginning the Human-Draconian War in what he believed to be an act of self-defence. Years later, after her successful campaign for President of Earth, she appointed Williams to be her military advisor. She wore a silver locket with a picture of twenty-year-old Williams. (PROSE: Doctor Who and the Space War)

After a series of raids against Earth cargo ships, believed to be the work of Draconia, President Dora personally met with the Draconian Emperor's son in order to negotiate an end to hostilities. She came under pressure from both her military advisors and the political opposition to take military action against Draconia. Eventually, President Dora agreed to break off diplomatic relations. However, she refused to fire the first shot in a war.

Thanks to the Third Doctor, it was revealed that the raids were the actions of Ogron mercenaries, and war was averted. (TV: Frontier in Space)
