[Comment] A time to remember and thank The Lancet’s reviewers of 2017

Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol provides an excellent opportunity to recalibrate what is important in life. An edgy adaptation by David Edgar is being performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford-upon-Avon, UK, until February, 2018. The production emphasises that the social inequalities Dickens and his contemporary, Thomas Wakley—founder of The Lancet—railed at, remain uncomfortably present today. By contrast to the exploitative commercial and criminal relationships portrayed in this story, is the timeless theme of relationships that sustain, nurture, and redeem.
