Emotional, My Dear Watson

We’ve missed some recent pieces and will be catching up throughout the weekend. We ask for your patience, as our full-time jobs and lives sometimes make it difficult to keep up with Dalrymple’s prolific output.

Last week’s BMJ column touches on those feinting spells and cases of the vapours so common in Victorian-era literature, in describing “the role of stress, or more generally of psychological factors, in the production of physical illness” in “The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes”.

    Dear Steve & Clinton,

    I, for one, always check your blog with gratitude, and never with impatience. I’ve come to rely on it absolutely in finding Dalrymple’s writings, and I check it almost every day. Your efforts are very much appreciated.
