Brother Campbell is the leader of the Eddington Monastery in Scotland. Campbell offered work for a distraught Desmond (who briefly attended this monastery in "Catch-22"). However, one night Campbell discovered Desmond drunk on the wine the monastery makes and as a result, he fired him. He gave Desmond one last job -- to load wine into Penny's car, introducing them to each other.

Interestingly, Campbell's desk has a framed photograph of himself with Daniel Faraday's mother, Eloise Hawking outside the monastery.


  • Campbell is of Scottish and Gaelic origin, and its meaning is "crooked mouth". Name of a famous Scottish Highland clan, referring to the facial feature.
  • His name may be a reference to Joseph Campbell, the scholar and mythological researcher.
  • His name may also be a reference to the important science fiction writer John Wood Campbell, Jr.
  • His name may be an allusion to George Campbell [1], rhetorician and philosopher, whose work was initially influenced by David Hume. From Wikipedia: Cambell's first major publication, A Dissertation in Miracles (1762), was directed against David Hume's attack on miracles in An Enquiry concerning Human Understanding. Campbell was influenced by Hume, but took particular issue with his philosophical strictures.
