Commandant Gorton was an officer in the British Army during World War I.

He was abducted by the War Lords and hypnotised into participating in their simulated version of the war, in which he served as commandant of a military prison near General Smythe's base. When Jamie McCrimmon was sent to the prison, the Second Doctor tried to bluff Gorton into releasing him, but when he failed, Zoe Heriot hit Gorton over the head with a vase, knocking Gorton out.

Gorton, like all the surviving victims of the War Lords, was returned home by the Time Lords. (TV: The War Games)
