Lord President Padraculoma III was a Time Lord who founded the Doom Coalition. He was an old friend of the Doctor.

Biography Edit

Padrac went to the Time Lord Academy at the same time as the First Doctor. He was part of the same zero-grav hyperball team as the Doctor. (AUDIO: The Eleven)

Creating the Doom Coalition Edit

Upon taking the office of Lord Cardinal in the High Council, Padrac used his newfound access to the Matrix to "see what surprises tomorrow held". He discovered that in almost every projection of Gallifrey's future, it was destroyed. Gallifrey could only survive if it was the only planet in existence, any other outcome would eventually result in the extinction of the Time Lords.

Wanting to save his people, Padrac set out to gather a group of individuals who would help him in his quest to make the Time Lords truly immortal. (AUDIO: The Crucible of Souls)

When the Seventh Doctor apprehended the Eleven, Padrac interrupted the Doctor while the Eleven was being put into cold-stasis and informed him that Lady President Romana II required him. (AUDIO: The Eleven)

Unleashing the Coalition Edit

While the Lord President was away from Gallifrey negotiating with the Monan Host, he decided to put the final part of his plan in action. (AUDIO: Songs of Love)

Padrac was a Cardinal on Gallifrey when the Eighth Doctor was brought in to catch the Eleven. He said that he was the more adventurous one out of him and the Doctor, but he was the one to stay on Gallifrey. (AUDIO: The Eleven)

Padrac later noticed disturbances in the Sol system due to the Eleven's activation of a prototype stellar manipulator. (AUDIO: The Satanic Mill)

After the Nine appeared on the Crucible of Souls, he ordered Veklin to stay behind and took River Song to Gallifrey. He told River Song that even without his plans, there would have been a Time War. He made his plans known to the Council. (AUDIO: Songs of Love)

He placed Caleera in the Resonance Engine in order to get her to destroy the universe. He later captured the Doctor to be part of his plans. After Caleera decided to destroy the engine, he was imprisoned and saw the Red Lady. (AUDIO: Stop the Clock)

Personality Edit

The Doctor believed Padrac too boring to be evil, (AUDIO: The Crucible of Souls) and later claimed that Padrac was never exciting during the time of the Academy, and could be superior and self-satisfied, but not evil. (AUDIO: Ship in a Bottle)

Padrac was a callous Machiavellian manipulator, coercing Caleera's feelings for him and twisting them to his own ends. This did, however, make him increasingly short-sighted. (AUDIO: Stop the Clock)

When the Doctor, Liv and Helen were trapped in an escape capsule that Padrac had sent to the end of the universe, they were able to escape this trap by realising that Padrac's greatest weakness was that he would never risk himself and that he was always concerned with saving his own neck, prompting them to destroy the ship so that the resulting explosion would throw them back into Time. The Doctor found it hard to believe Padrac was behind the Doom Coalition, but later in the escape capsule he realised he had done everything Padrac had wanted, and it went back to when he'd been in his previous incarnation, the incarnation who was the "master of chess" and he was amazed that Padrac had known he couldn't stop the Doctor's interference, so he simply adjusted his plans, and made the Doctor's meddling part of the plan.
