Talk about it here.
One account stated that this universe's version of the Second Doctor selected one of the bodies offered to him by the Time Lords after his trial. Like his counterpart, this version of the Doctor was banished to Earth in the late 20th century, where he became the British President.
Based on the Doctor recognising the face on the 'Big Brother' posters as one that he was offered at his trial, the Seventh Doctor mistakenly believed the Leader was an alternative incarnation of his. (PROSE: Timewyrm: Revelation, TV: The War Games)
The Leader may have been at least partly responsible for his Earth's much more advanced technology. He died in the volcanic catastrophe that struck Great Britain in the aftermath of I-Day. (PROSE: The Face of the Enemy)
Behind the scenes Edit
Photos of the BBC special effects designer Jack Kine were used to depict the Leader on the UNITY IS STRENGTH poster in the Technical Stores, the Doctor's hut on the regular Earth timeline; and the framed photograph on the wall of Brigade Leader Lethbridge-Stewart's office in Inferno. However, the Leader never appears on-screen in person and there is no on-screen evidence to suggest that the Doctor and the Leader had any connection; this connection was made only in the novels by the Doctor, who recognised the face.
