To me, this episode represents the best of what BRAMWELL has to offer the viewer. It runs the gamut of emotions all in an hour's episode. We begin with Dr. Bramwell and Dr Marsham at the fair, with both doctors having fun, enjoying themselves, something they seldom have time for. Then they meet Rose, who suffers kinda from Elephant Man's disease, with a huge protrusion on her forehead. Eleanor thinks that it is merely a tumor and thinks she can rid her of this growth. When they finally operate, they find that it is not what they expected. Mistakes have been made and Rose becomes a vegetable. The pain Eleanor must deal with realizing that Rose may be TRAPPED, unable to move or speak, but still conscious of her surroundings is almost unbearable. She has certainly ruined Rose's life, but with the best of intentions, and she must learn to live with it. This episode deals with the issue of class, family and intense suffering for the mistakes one makes, despite the most professional of diagnosis' and the best of intentions. It is painful to watch, no one is at fault, but people suffer... greatly and there is nothing anyone can do.
