Storyline

When Robert suffers from nightmares Caroline arranges for herself, William and John to meet famous hypnotist Mr Kapoor though William is more concerned about his gall-stones. Mr Kapoor demonstrates his skills by hypnotizing Caroline, impressing all concerned but William, whilst anxious about his own condition, is keen to learn the reasons for Robert's bad dreams. John's lecture on the use of ether and chloroform goes awry when he inhales a surfeit of both but his use of Mr Kapoor's mesmerism may still be invaluable to William's operation - hopefully.

The Indian Mesmerist
10 October 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

William is in extreme discomfort due to his gall stones. Dr Lessing gives him less than appealing options with eye watering contraptions. John on the other hand is keen to use chloroform on William to null the pain while the operation is being done.

However Dr Lessing has shaking hands due to some nightmares he keeps having being on a ship.

Caroline takes William and John to meet a famous hypnotist Mr Kapoor at the local Indian restaurant run by his family. These mesmerisers usually end up massaging nubile young women for an hour in a dark room.

However Williams opts to be hypnotised by John before his operation as he is taking no chances in his concoctions.

A rather average episode, John Woods is back as writer yet the Indian restaurant scene did not work for me and Dr Lessing's musings about being stranded in the high seas riding turtles was just OK.
