  • A bit better than episode 1 I suppose. It is still insultingly patronising to its target audience of doctors, who decided to follow a career in medicine years before they see this advert.

    It could just as well be used to promote A/E, paediatrics, or becoming a Clown.

  • Of course shouldn't every child have lashings of prophylactic medication prior to any party to make sure they have a good time? unless of course the unnecessary medication produces some spectacular side effects which is likely to generate more complaints than if they had to blow out their candles with a bit of a sniffle.
