Plague doctors were individuals in the Middle Ages who were given the task of tending to people infected with the plague. In most cases, they were either second rate or under-trained physicians, incapable of maintaining their own practice. Many were not doctors at all, but people of various other employments paid by towns to cater to the sick.
Plague doctors were employed in various methods when ever plague set in. The earliest documentation of these individuals being hired go as far back as the mid 500s AD. The plague doctor image that we as a general public are familiar with was not seen until the 1600s. It was then that the “traditional” plague doctor costume was created. The costume consisted of a cloak made of heavy fabric covered in wax to protect the doctor’s body, and a mask to keep out the sick air. The masks had a long cone shaped structure at the nose, to be filled with scents that would protect the doctor from the bad air.
Because of the nature of their work, plague doctors often became victims of the plague themselves, or were quarantined for the protection of the public.
Kind of surprised Moffat hasn’t brought these to Who yet.
I love everything about plague doctors.

So I was playing Assassins Creed 3 and I had a level 3 notoriety level so I was just walking down the steet and these guys just came and attcked me. At first I was like this’ll be easy its only a couple guys. Then as I kept playing I realized I had been in combat for like 5 minutes. 5 minutes turned to 10. 10 to 20. After like 30 minutes the enemies wouldn’t stop coming. I was like wthhhh??? Stahhhp already! Evetually I realized they wouldn’t stop coming, either it was a glitch or something else idk but the more I killed the more it started to lag soooo I just ran and it was lagging so bad when I was running away. Eventually, I reached a hiding spot and brought my notoriety down. Everything after that was normal. Was this a glitch or what? Idk
I’M GONNA WRECK IT!!!
