The Doctor's Dilemma

Synopsis: Mrs. Dubedat loves and idolizes her artist husband, Louis, but he is dying of tuberculosis. She goes to a doctor and convinces him to save her husband. The doctor can keep only so many patients, and must choose who is worth saving, but is convinced that Louis' artistic talents make him worthy. But when he and several colleague meet Louis, they discover that he is in fact a smooth-talking money-grabbing scoundrel. They also learn that he has another wife, whom he has abandoned. So, the doctor has a problem: should he let Louis die, leaving Mrs. Dubedat with her idealized image, or save him and his artistic talents, but force her to face his bigamy and other flaws?

Harley Street, home

of medical science.

Here they are:
The good and the bad.

The surgeons are the worst.

They have discovered that the

body is full of useless bits.

You can cut out half of it,

that costs only a little money.

I know that boy. He removed

people's uvula for 50 guinea.

This villain cut almonds

for 200 guinea.

He could count double

for the women.

Cutler Walpole has discovered the

nuciform sac, the last whim.

He cuts it out for 500 guinea.

You might as well

have your hair cut.

Already journalists? Of course.

A famous doctor is knighted:

Sir Colenso Ridgeon.

I am from 'The Globe'. May I...

No that is not allowed.

Are you, sir Patrick?

Come inside.

- May we please...

- No way.

I wanted to congratulate him first.

I am not impressed.

I thought those discoveries

were nonsense...

and that also applies

to its drops and tubes.

It's about science.

I know that too well.

I say you are there.

Do you have your eggs, boy?

What a big guy.

Do you keep it a little tidy today?

People come to congratulate you.

Come in.

And dude, are you proud?

And I owe everything to you.

Larie, but thanks.

I am besieged since I have

drops that help against TB.

Science is extremely fascinating.

Look at your discovery, for

all the great discoveries.

Where do they lead? To the

discoveries of my old father.

And that's been dead for 40 years.

Very interesting.

There is nothing like progress.

So you can cure TBC? I think so.

I have known 30

people who could.

Why are people still dead?

Work of the devil, I think.

Do not move.

Do not move, Jinny.

Just relax. Come down.

I'm sick of it.

I know those jokes.

Look at those bills.

You have bite me more often.

I really want my money now. - You will

get everything tomorrow. Promised.

Did he want to see money?

They no longer deliver before we pay.

Let them fall away. They only

think about that stupid money.

Money, money, money.

Smelting, I hate it.

Do not be unhappy.

I earn easily enough

to pay them all.

Next year I will have

my own exhibition.

You do not believe anything, old boss.

I do not want to go.

Look at my folder.


You're too late again.

I was stopped in the hospital.

I'm more interested in a drink.

Donate yourself. I'll be right.

I want to speak to you privately.

What is opsonin again?

That is the bacteria, so the

white blood cells eat them.

The procedure is important. The

right moment leads to healing.

The wrong moment leads to death.

My discovery.

The biggest one since Harvey

discovered the bloodstream.

I want a drink.

The old Paddy likes to have one.


From whom can you call him that?

You always call him that.

Soon I'll be old Colly Ridgeon.

We already say that.

That's why medical students

are so disgusting.

No respect, no ways.

Do you think Sir Colenso...

I do not think so.

Can I speak to Sir Colenso? I do not

have an appointment and he's busy...

but it is very urgent.

Would it be possible?

I want your advice.


There is something with me.

Everything is fine with my organs.

I feel restless, as if

something is going on.

Tunes play through my head,

beautiful but very commonplace.

Do you hear voices?

That is beautiful. When

patients arrive with

something like that,

I will lock them up.

Do you think I'm crazy?

Do you really have no votes?

Then you hang out the pias.

Pretty normal between 17 and 22 years.

Sometimes people get it at their 40th.

You are single, you just

have to be careful.

With my food? No, your behavior.

You are not going to die, but you
