    Hi.



    This is another interesting programme, a follow on from the Victorian farm only looking at a pharmacy obviously. It Involves a lot of leeches and remedies such as squoshing worms and then mixing with red wine to help heal bruises.

    Definately worth a watch Jaycad.



    The apprentice is called Tom Quick which I thought was apt, it sounds like something out of a Dickens novel. But I think it was his real name lol.

    'tom quick' does sound like a character from 'the pickwick papers' but if it's his real name i do hope he's not swedish!

    The programme was good in general but i'm so disappointed that the customers were not prescribed opium for aches and pains or arsenic for cosmetic face packs,instead they were given the modern day equivalent-booooooo!! Give me a dose of mercury anyday!

    Pharmeceutical antiques are my favourite!
