Re: the TV doctor with Tourettes — have you heard of the BC surgeon who has Tourettes? He lives somewhere in the Fraser Valley, I believe. He was featured in a documentary by Dr. Oliver Sacks, whom you may have heard of. As in the case of the fictional doctor you referred to, this fellow can be full of tics (the current one at the time of the documentary was “hideous”, said over and over without any context) right up to the point at which he 1) begins to fly his own small plane or 2) operates on a patient, and suddenly disappear, only to begin again once he shifts his focus away from the task at hand.
