The notorious Doctor Case. He has been described as “part quack, part astrologer and part peddler of drugs”. He seems to have been a psychologist as well for his speciality was a little box of pills on which was inscribed.

“Here’s fourteen pills for thirteen pence,
Enough for any man’s conscience.”

His motto was most appropriate, it was “The Case is Altered”.
