Semantics of Healthcare Part 2.5 - Dr Watson Scientist and Psychiatrist

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.

Feedback would be very much appreciated! Thank you to all the people who have commented - I really enjoy our discussion and I've learnt so many new things from you all. 


Livejournal Stats

For the last few days I've been able to see my livejournal stats even though I am not a paid member and then today it reverted back to being my guests only.

Has anyone else had a problem like this before?
