Mister Saldaamir was a blue-skinned humanoid and a friend of the Doctor's parents. (PROSE: Unnatural History) As the last survivor of the Time Wars in Gallifrey's ancient past, (PROSE: The Gallifrey Chronicles) he was the fourteenth oldest being in the universe. (PROSE: Mr Saldaamir)


Saldaamir originated from the universe before the invention of time travel and the Time Wars, which erased his home planet from time and wiped out his adopted home planet. This destroyed Saldaamir's memory, family, and companions and left him the last of his species. (PROSE: Mr Saldaamir)

Just as the Eighth Doctor did, (PROSE: The Adventuress of Henrietta Street) Saldaamir rooted himself in the new post-Wars history by marrying a witch, whom he rarely saw after his wedding night. This allowed him to survive in the new universe, although he could not travel in time. Despite this, he knew enough about the future to put himself in the right place at the right time to protect the existence of the timeline. (PROSE: Mr Saldaamir)

Saldaamir was an associate of Ulysses and Penelope Gate, the Doctor's parents. Together they investigated the temporal cicatrix in the Shoal, where they met Lady Larna, who was from their future. (PROSE: The Gallifrey Chronicles) Saldaamir and the Doctor's father were once interrupted when a young Doctor caught a cobblemouse. (PROSE: Unnatural History) When the Doctor was young, Saldaamir attended a party put on by the Doctor's family's household. (PROSE: The Infinity Doctors)

Beginning in the late Cretaceous, Saldaamir lived in San Francisco to study the temporal anomalies there. (PROSE: Mr Saldaamir) The Doctor's father, then known as "Daniel Joyce", also lived there in the early 2000s. (PROSE: Unnatural History) Saldaamir feared Last Contact. (PROSE: Mr Saldaamir)

Saldaamir met Bernice Summerfield on Mars in 2595, where he informed her that he was going to San Francisco. Bernice had met Saldaamir once before this, but she could not remember where. (PROSE: Beige Planet Mars)

The Eighth Doctor saw Mr Saldaamir smiling at him in a vision of his future. (PROSE: Father Time)


Saldaamir had blue skin and wore an elegant pin-striped suit. He had a set of small sharp teeth (PROSE: Beige Planet Mars) which could bite clean through bone. He wore a wedding ring of blue gold and was 6'3" tall. (PROSE: Mr Saldaamir)
