Dougal Dunnock was a bestselling author and professor. He wrote Fishy Fingers: Evolution from Sea to Land. He illegally bought Mervin the Missing Link from Frank when his reputation would have been destroyed, as his book had hypothesised mistakes about it.
Douglas Dunnock was a very short old man. He had long white hair and a large, bushy white beard and moustache.
Professor Dunnock's care for his work saw him sell all of his possessions to make sure his career would continue. He also had a caring side, such as how he provided Mervin everything he needed. (PROSE: The Last Dodo)
