Penelope Gate was the human creator of a time machine (PROSE: The Room With No Doors) and the wife of the Time Lord Ulysses. (PROSE: The Gallifrey Chronicles)

The first time she successfully used her time machine, she used a lightning strike to charge it up. She travelled to 1996 where she obtained a mutated Tzun battery. She used that to power her machine. Penelope met the Seventh Doctor, who took her back to her own time of 1883. (PROSE: The Room With No Doors)

Later in her life she would meet the Time Lord Ulysses, whom she married. She moved to Gallifrey. Unbeknownst to the High Council, they had a son together. (PROSE: The Gallifrey Chronicles) The Doctor's mother was named Penelope. (PROSE: The Infinity Doctors) Penelope and Ulysses became friends with Mr Saldaamir, with whom they frequently went exploring. The trio also associated themselves with Lady Larna, who was from their future. (PROSE: The Gallifrey Chronicles)

When the Time Lord Marnal threatened to expose Penelope's and Ulysses's activities, they used the telepathic circuits of his TARDIS, which would later belong to the Doctor, to wipe his memory, and they dumped him on Earth in England, 1883, to board with Penelope's mother. (PROSE: The Gallifrey Chronicles)

Appearance Edit

On Gallifrey Penelope wore an ankle-length skirt and prim white blouse, with long red hair that "hung wild to her waist". (PROSE: The Gallifrey Chronicles)
