Greetings. I am know in these parts as Marnal Gate and this is the worlds largest (and most badly spellchecked) website on the Time Lords of Gallifrey. This was my first web page so I tried to follow the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid). This page was created in March 1998.
It was last updated in June, 2015.
I have (shall we say 'an obsessive'? Yes. Yes, we shall) an obsessive interest in the history of the history of the Doctor's people from before the time of Rassilon to its apparent destruction in the Time War with the Daleks. The idea behind this web page is to trace all the little details about the Time Lord's past that we have been given over the decades. I've also added a section on the Daleks (though it doesn't cover as much material as I'd like). If you have any doubts as to the validity of the data presented, just check the color code chart at the top of each page. I've been pretty religious about sticking to it.
Details on Gallifrey's Astronomy, Ecology, Biology, Government, Culture, and the Web of Time

I've tried to base all my information off of reliable (or at least well thought out) sources. These include the TV series (new and old), Novels, Audios, and numerous referance books. The Whoniverse and The Cloister Library have also been essential. Obviously I have a great deal of respect of the expanded universe of Doctor Who beyond the TV episodes but I've made sure to color code the text so that those with a narrow veiw of canon can still find the site useful but just following the font color of their choice. Rest assured that when irreconcilable differences appear the TV series will alway trump any other source.
If you think I've forgotten some data or just want to give your opinion on my page, then please don't hesitate to E-Mail me at email@example.com . (If I don't respond after week then a cybermat must have ate your email before it got to me and you should send again).

This Web page should be viewed as an advertisements for all the sources that went into making it.
Oh and the myspace page http://www.myspace.com/merlin_3055 has shamelessly stolen my material and posted it in his blog as his own. May he rot in a black star!
