One thing that I find a lot of really good writers get confused about in Sherlock Fandom is the extent of John's skills as a doctor. In some cases he is so vastly overqualified that I feel like I'm reading a superman comic rather than a gritty portrayal of front line combat. In other cases poor John is so clueless that I start worrying for his fictional patients and his registration with the General Medical Council.
Another short, not-be-taken-too-seriously, guide on how to make John a good (but not supernatural) doctor, his potential as a scientist, psychiatrist and drug dealer for Sherlock.
