Anyone paying more than cursory attention to popular culture will have heard that Breaking Bad is coming to a conclusion. It’s been cited alongside The Wire as some of the best TV ever made. Although I ran a chemical plant before I came to Brompton, I’m not – I would like to make clear – going to follow Walter White’s career path. But it’s interesting to watch how he mentors his young partner, Jesse, who progresses from flunking chemistry to running a lab. Later on, he has to train a new assistant, Todd, and tells him to “pay attention and apply yourself – that’s all I can ask.”
