The 406th President served in the position for much less than 900 years, the length of time that President Pandak III served. His High Chancellor was Goth, who it was assumed would succeed the President. However, he decided that he would elect a different Time Lord as his successor, which he told Chancellor Goth. (TV: The Deadly Assassin)
In or some time after Gallifreyan Year 6241.1 (AUDIO: Neverland) was the Presidential Resignation Day, at which the President was to name his successor and read his resignation honours list, which contained some names that he believed would be found surprising. However, before being able to do so, he was assassinated by Chancellor Goth and the Master. (TV: The Deadly Assassin)
Behind the scenes Edit
The casting of Llewellyn Rees in the role of Lord President was an in-joke, as he had been General Secretary of the actors' union, Equity, for many years.
