This '''President''' was the [[Lord President]] of [[Gallifrey]] when the [[Fourth Doctor]] returned to Gallifrey. [[Chancellor]] [[Goth]] expected to succeed him, but the President had informed him he would choose someone else. On [[Presidential Resignation Day]], Goth assassinated the President before he could make his announcement and tried to frame the Doctor. He was said to have been popular during his reign, which some Time Lords suggested was short compared to long-past Presidents. ([[DW]]: ''[[The Deadly Assassin]]'')

== Behind the scenes ==
 
* Given the average reign of a Time Lord President lasted a few centuries, it seems likely that this was [[President (The Three Doctors)|the same President]] who had been challenged by [[Omega]] a few years earlier, possibly having [[regenerate]]d.
 
* The casting of Llewellyn Rees in the role of Lord President was an in-joke, as he had been General Secretary of the actor's union, [[Equity]], for many years.
