Biography[edit | edit source]

By 14 July 1930, MacDonald, being the prime minister, was one of the very few people to own a television set, which at the time were experimental devices. (PROSE: The Wheel of Ice)

On 5 October 1930, Charley Pollard named a Vortisaur "Ramsay" after him as she believed that it resembled him. (AUDIO: Storm Warning)

MacDonald's position as Prime Minister overlapped with Adolf Hitler's rise to power in Germany in 1933. The Seventh Doctor claimed he was an idiot for ignoring the threat posed by the Nazi government, being more concerned instead with domestic unemployment rates and with keeping the Conservative Party in line.

MacDonald was succeeded as prime minister by Neville Chamberlain, who had a more difficult time dealing with Nazi Germany as Europe drew closer to war. (PROSE: Illegal Alien, One Wednesday Afternoon, AUDIO: An Eye For Murder)
