Godric was an English human living during the time of King Arthur.
He dreamed of becoming a knight of the Round Table, though believed he was not worthy. Ironically, he accidentally found the Holy Grail. Shortly thereafter, he was lured into a tree by a dryad. She imprisoned him inside for a thousand years, finally releasing him in 1936. After Lady Hester Stanton was defeated, the Fourth Doctor returned him to his original time. King Arthur made him a knight for his services to the realm. (Wolfsbane)
