Ten of the best fictional bad doctors

For the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the best bad doctors in fiction.

One character on the list:
Dr No

Ian Fleming's Chinese-German villain is a tough nut. After having his hands cut off by a gang, he survives with artificial hands, and develops a penchant for human experiments that test the ability to withstand pain. James Bond is the perfect subject, and gets a lot of electric shocks and poison spiders before he buries the Doctor in bird poo.
Read about another doctor on Mullan's list.
