Review: THE DOCTOR, Duke of York's Theatre Photo Review: THE DOCTOR, Duke of York's Theatre

And the kettle’s conspicuousness is not for nothing: like the water boiling in it, Icke’s medical ethics drama gradually increases in heat and reaches a point of scorching intensity, leaving no one unscathed.
