The Victorian Pharmacy was the place where ordinary people could access health care. Ruth Goodman, fresh off the Victorian farm will be practicing what she learned from her time on the farm. Nick Barber, a professor of pharmacy will be the head pharmacists. Tom Quick is a Ph.D. student in pharmacy and will be the apprentice for the pharmacy.
The Barker Goodman Pharmacy hosts their grand opening and their first patient is a nurse. The pharmacy will dispense safer Victorian versions of the medicines. The nurse comes in for a cough remedy, however a lot of the Victorian Cough syrups had chloroform, morphine and cannabis. Ruth sources local plants to create a safer version of a cough syrups.
While Ruth works in the woods, Tom and Nick work on opening up the pharmacy laboratory. It was where they would do their experiments and distill their medicines.
Nick works on making oil of earthworm, a remedy for bruises. Tom sets up the laboratory so they can distill their medicine.
