Private Medicine, Murder and Mayhem Tour
Barts Hospital's poshest surgeon, Valentine Jenkinson-Smythe, used to make his juniors run after his Rolls Royce while he shouted at them through the window. His predecessor, Roderigo Lopez, was disemboweled on the orders of Queen Elizabeth I.
When they weren't buying stolen corpses or operating under the influence, the City of London's doctors have invented world-beating cures through times of War, Pestilence and Plague.
Meet these colourful characters, and the unfortunates they treated, with Barts Insider and City of London Guide Ian McDowell.
