The steward wore a copper-coloured [robe]] and managed the platforms when the richest aliens were invited to witness Earth's destruction by the sun. When the Ninth Doctor and Rose Tyler came to Platform One, he thought they were intruders (not on the guest list). The Doctor used his psychic paper to trick the steward and he allowed them in. He introduced the guests on Platform One, and made announcements via an intercom, such as when he discovered the Doctor's TARDIS, due to teleportation being strictly forbidden. He ordered it to be taken away and gave the Doctor a ticket, saying he could get it back sometime later. The steward was killed by one of Lady Cassandra's metal spiders when it released the sun filter that incinerated him in his office. (TV: The End of the World)
