Professor Arthur Candy was on the faculty of Luna University's archaeology department. Much of his research centred on the Doctor. He concluded that the Doctor had a generally negative and dangerous effect on history. His attempt to give a lecture to this effect in 2643 was pre-empted by the Doctor. (PROSE: Continuity Errors) The Doctor left him in Birmingham in 1996. (PROSE: Afterword by Professor Candy)

In 2593, Professor Candy accompanied Bernice Summerfield to a dig on Perfecton, where he experienced the attack of the Grel. After a Perfecton hit their spaceship Winton, he found himself in Pantoland in the persona of Dame Candy. She delighted in creating puns on what she saw, such as using fish related dialogue when she met the Grel. She was the mother of Young Jack from the village. (AUDIO: Oh No It Isn't)
