In the episode “Unlucky in love”, the culprit of the murders, who happened to be a disenchanted woman, was discussed between Dr Ogden and Murdoch.
Yet again, the issue of her mental health is discussed and even without any psychiatric knowledge, Dr Ogden was going to help defend this woman in court.
How many times have I raised this subject? so many times that I have lost count.
In most episodes, the women who have committed murder are generally mentally ill but the men are just taken straight to the gallows.
Yet another piece in the writers’ arsenal to titillate the public, by concluding that all women are sweetness and light whilst men are mostly just drunks, abusers of their wives and are evil.
Talk about stereotypes !!!!!!
