Dr. Carruthers...what a joke!
First of all, who would believe a guy with this accent is really named "Doctor Carruthers"? Secondly, just what kind of doctor is he? The foreword mentions that he is beloved by the whole town. But he seems to be a perfume developer primarily, rather than a G.P. And of course, there's the business with the bats! So we have a combination of kindly family doctor/scent specialist/bat breeder/mad scientist. Wonder what school he learned THAT from!share
