Several years ago I had to take my sick son to the doctor. The GP was close to retirement, and I was struck by his physical stiffness and hunched back. We started chatting and – I can’t remember how it came about – he said to me, ‘It makes me laugh how you arts people call yourselves “Doctor”. We have to study for years and years to call ourselves that’.
