A version of the Time Lord Vansell appeared in a timeline in which the Valeyard, a future incarnation of the renegade Time Lord known as the Doctor, triumphed over the Sixth Doctor in the Matrix.

He expressed his fascination with the Valeyard, calling him a "unique being" and an "essential case for study". He initially wanted to allow the Valeyard complete freedom and use him to manipulate time the way the Time Lords had tried to use the Fourth Doctor to prevent the creation of the Daleks. However, after seeing the Valeyard destroy Gallifrey, trapping Vansell and the interim Lord President in the Matrix on Space Station Zenobia, he had a change of hearts, and he and the Lord President gave Mel Bush their time ring and staser, sending her out to either try to connect with the Valeyard as the Doctor, or kill him.
