In this episode we admire the father of toxicology, of psychotherapy, of evidence based medicine... but not as much as he admired himself. The self proclaimed king of doctors also a drunk who rubbed poo on knives and wrote a recipe for homunculus. Was he a genius or just an ego maniac? Steve Cross and Iszi argue it out. Watch out - quite a bit of fruity language in this episode.
