Spandrell was Castellan of the Chancellery Guard on Gallifrey for many years. He was succeeded by Kelner.

Biography Edit

Like all Time Lords, Spandrell was taken from his family at the age of eight for the selection process in the Drylands. Staring into the Untempered Schism as part of a Time Lord initiation rite, Spandrell was inspired by what he saw in the Schism. (PROSE: A Brief History of Time Lords)

Spandrell was Castellan during the President's assassination and led the subsequent investigation into the attack. He was very sceptical of the Fourth Doctor at first but ended up becoming his ally in the unmasking of Chancellor Goth as the President's murderer. While Spandrell was Castellan, it was rare for the office-holder to deal with criminal offences committed by Time Lords; according to Engin, his duties more often brought him into contact with "more plebeian classes".

Spandrell was persuaded to come out of retirement to serve under Lord President Flavia. (PROSE: Blood Harvest, Happy Endings, The Eight Doctors)
