Dr Francis Augur was a physician who ran the Auriga Clinic in Hounslow. Prior to this, he had given an interview to Sarah Jane Smith for the Metropolitan in 1987, during which she was highly impressed by his environmental activism.
Sarah Jane revisited Dr Auger when she investigated the unusual behaviour of his patients Dana Price and Hilda Sheen. After following Maria Jackson back to the clinic, Dr Auger revealed to her that he was working with the Keratin, having been told that they would share their technology in exchange for experiments on gold in salt water. They then revealed that they were only using him in their plans to conquer the universe and seized full control of him. Dr Auger later revived and killed the Keratin representative by injecting it with salt water, remorseful over what he had done. (AUDIO: The Glittering Storm)
