Jeff Watson Obituary

Jeffrey Victor Watson (born November 5, 1956 in Sacramento, California) is an American guitarist originally known as one of the founding members and lead guitarist of the band Night Ranger, in which he has played as co-guitarist with guitarist Brad Gillis. Watson developed his signature eight-fingered tapping technique during his time in the band.

He appeared as a special guest on Douglas Docker’s Docker’s Guild project. Watson has also released solo albums. In 2007, he was fired by the three other members of Night Ranger through a letter from their attorney. During 2009 Jeff was part of Dennis DeYoung’s travelling band.’As one of the original presenters on the show he brought a world of experience to the on-air team and had the rare knack of being incredibly funny one minute and projecting authority and gravitas the next.’ ‘Audiences really responded to him and there’s no doubt he played a big role in the show’s early success. He was a real one-of-a kind and will be missed.’ Popular Getaway presenter Catriona Rowntree paid tribute to her beloved colleague, telling TV Tonight: ‘This is heartbreaking news. As both a colleague and friend Jeff was a joy to be with. You can imagine how interesting he was after so many world travels, above all though he was just so cheeky and fun loving.’

‘Jeff had the best bloopers ever! Jeff always spoke of his love for his family, I know their hearts will be hurting and we are sending all our love to them.’Vinokur received a PhD in “Biochemistry, Molecular and Structural Biology” from UCLA in 2017. During his graduate studies, he published research on the discovery of new enzymes, protein structures and a new biochemical pathway in ancient bacteria that grow in some of the most extreme conditions on Earth.

Jeffrey Vinokur (born August 24, 1990), also known as Dr. Jeff and The Dancing Scientist, is an American scientist, science communicator and entrepreneur known for hosting over 100 episodes of educational science shows used in classrooms in the United States. As of November 2021, the educational streaming video platform he created is used in 30% of all schools in America.
Vinokur has stated publicly that he almost never uses personal social media despite having a career working in media and multiple verified accounts. In an interview, he states, “I’m not active on a personal level on social media… I don’t want to be spending time thinking of interesting things to say and taking pictures of my food… I just want to eat quick and get back to growing Generation Genius to reach as many kids as possible.”Vinokur first combined science and dance together while attended the University of Wisconsin–Madison as a biochemistry major where he conducted biofuels research. He received guidance from UW-Madison chemistry professor Bassam Shakhashiri, UW-Madison physics professor Clint Sprott, and lecture demonstrator Jim Maynard. The performance was later premiered on America’s Got Talent in 2010.

What happened to Jeff Watson's wife?
Jeff Watson says the doctor incorrectly diagnosed anxiety and directed the administration of the drug Ativan. Leanne passed away only moments after the shot was administered.
In 2020, Pitchbook ranked Generation Genius #2 on its list of “50 Hottest Startups in LA.” As of Nov 2021, Generation Genius videos, hosted by Dr. Jeff, are used by 3 million students each week with subscriptions in more than 30% of all elementary schools in the United States.

Jeffrey Vinokur was born in 1990 to Russian immigrant parents. He attended Montvale Public Schools. His early interest in science was fueled by doing kitchen science experiments in elementary school, which later progressed to creating a chemistry lab in his parent’s garage at age 14, where he would do amateur experiments like making sodium metal from household supplies. Vinokur began conducting biochemistry research at age 15 at Rutgers University.
His research shows how some enzymes are able to work in harsh conditions and how they can potentially be modified to produce biofuels. For his research, Vinokur is a recipient of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, NIH-UCLA Chemistry Biology Interface Fellowship, and Audree Fowler Award in Protein Science.He is also known for combining the hip hop dance genre of popping with live science demonstrations. He has performed on Good Morning America, The Today Show, The View, Rachael Ray, America’s Got Talent, and Discovery Channel, as well as at the World Science Festival, Smithsonian Institution, and the USA Science and Engineering Festival.

Is Dr. Jeff still sick?
Jeff Vet Dies. Many people believed that the vet had died of cancer when he went off from the planet show for some time, but that is not the case as he is alive to this day.
Vinokur premiered as “The Dancing Scientist” on the fifth season of America’s Got Talent where he successfully placed in the Top 100 acts out of 70,000 auditions. The America’s Got Talent appearance lead to Vinokur hosting a monthly science segment on the local CBS News in Madison, Wisconsin beginning in 2011. The local news appearances lead to him co-hosting a series of science segments on the Discovery Channel (Canada) show Daily Planet in 2012.While a senior at Pascack Hills High School, he began learning the hip-hop dance genre of “popping” through online videos and DVDs. He later traveled to New York City to take classes from leading practitioners of the dance style such as Jazzy J of The Electric Boogaloos. Afterwards he began posting dance tutorials on YouTube under the username “TheRussianTiger,” and the videos have since garnered millions of hits.

Is Dr. Jeff still with his wife?

Watson appears alongside Holmes in multiple Sherlock Holmes video games, such as Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective (1991) and its two sequels, and The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes (1992) and its sequel. Watson also appears with Holmes in the Sherlock Holmes series of video games developed by Frogwares.
John H. Watson, known as Dr. Watson, is a fictional character in the Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Along with Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson first appeared in the novel A Study in Scarlet (1887). “The Adventure of Shoscombe Old Place” (1927) is the last work of Doyle featuring Watson and Holmes, although their last appearance in the canonical timeline is in “His Last Bow” (1917).In Doyle’s early rough plot outlines, Holmes’s associate was named “Ormond Sacker” before Doyle finally settled on “John Watson”. He was probably inspired by one of Doyle’s colleagues, Dr James Watson. William L. DeAndrea wrote, “Watson also serves the important function of catalyst for Holmes’s mental processes…. From the writer’s point of view, Doyle knew the importance of having someone to whom the detective can make enigmatic remarks, a consciousness that’s privy to facts in the case without being in on the conclusions drawn from them until the proper time. Any character who performs these functions in a mystery story has come to be known as a ‘Watson’.”

In A Study in Scarlet, Watson, as the narrator, is established as having studied at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London, receiving his medical degree from the University of London in 1878, and subsequently being trained at Netley as an assistant surgeon in the British Army. (In a non-canonical story, “The Field Bazaar”, Watson is described as having received his Bachelor of Medicine from Doyle’s alma mater, Edinburgh University; this would probably have been in 1874.) He joined British forces in India with the 5th Northumberland Fusiliers before being attached to the 66th (Berkshire) Regiment of Foot, saw service in the Second Anglo-Afghan War, was wounded at the Battle of Maiwand (July 1880) by a jezail bullet, suffered enteric fever and was sent back to England on the troopship HMS Orontes following his recovery. With his health ruined, he was then given a daily pension of 11 shillings and 6 pence for nine months.

Throughout Doyle’s novels, Watson is presented as Holmes’s biographer. At the end of the first published Holmes story, A Study in Scarlet, Watson is so incensed by Scotland Yard claiming full credit for its solution that he exclaims: “Your merits should be publicly recognised. You should publish an account of the case. If you won’t, I will for you”. Holmes suavely responds: “You may do what you like, Doctor”. Therefore, the story is presented as “a reprint from the reminiscences of John H. Watson”, and most other stories of the series share this by implication.

In the TV series Sanctuary, Dr. James Watson (Peter Wingfield) is a member of “The Five” and the actual detective in the Doyle stories. The character of Holmes is created and Watson is made his sidekick at Watson’s request to Doyle.
Ian Hart portrayed a young, capable, and fit Watson twice for BBC Television, once opposite Richard Roxburgh as Holmes (in a 2002 adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles) and for a second time opposite Rupert Everett as the Great Detective in the new story Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking (2004).As the first-person narrator of Doyle’s Holmes stories, Watson has inspired the creation of many similar narrator characters. After the appearance of Watson, the use of a “Watsonian narrator”, a character like Watson who has a reason to be close to the detective but cannot follow or understand the detective’s line of investigation, became “a standard feature of the classical detective story”. This type of character has been called “the Watson”.In 1881, Watson is introduced by his friend Stamford to Holmes, who is looking for someone to share rent in rooms in 221B Baker Street. Concluding that they are compatible, they subsequently move in. When Watson notices multiple eccentric guests frequenting the rooms, Holmes reveals that he is a “consulting detective” and that the guests are his clients.Watson appears on the 2010 direct-to-DVD Asylum film Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, a science fiction reinvention in which he was portrayed by actor Gareth David-Lloyd. At the beginning of the film, Watson is an elderly man portrayed by David Shackleton during the Blitz in 1940. He tells his nurse the tale of the adventure which he and Holmes vowed never to tell the public. In 1889, he is a home doctor and personal physician and biographer of Sherlock Holmes (Ben Syder). Here, Watson is portrayed as easily confused by Holmes’s abilities, but the story is set in 1881, the same year as A Study in Scarlet, which may account for this. He is a skilled gunman and is loyal, if often irritated by Holmes’s methods.

In the 2010 BBC television show Sherlock, Martin Freeman portrays Watson as a discharged military doctor who strikes a complicated yet good friendship with the brilliant but eccentric Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch). As with the original character, Watson served in the British Army in Afghanistan. The adaptation is set in contemporary London.
Watson was also portrayed by English-born actor Michael Williams for the BBC Radio adaptation of the complete run of the Holmes canon from November 1989 to July 1998. Williams, together with Clive Merrison, who played Holmes, were the first actors to portray the Doyle characters in all the short stories and novels of the canon. After Williams’ death, the BBC continued the shows with The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Four series were produced, all written by Bert Coules who had been the head writer on the complete canon project, with Andrew Sachs starring opposite Merrison.In The Sign of the Four, Watson becomes engaged to Mary Morstan, a governess. In “The Adventure of the Empty House”, a reference by Watson to “my own sad bereavement” implies that Morstan has died by the time Holmes returns after faking his death; that fact is confirmed when Watson moves back to Baker Street to share rooms with Holmes. In “The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier” (set in January 1903), Holmes mentions that “Watson had at that time deserted me for a wife”, but this wife was never named or described.

In the 2013 Russian adaptation Sherlock Holmes, Watson is portrayed as older than Holmes. The character was played by Andrei Panin, in his last role, as he died shortly after the filming was finished.

In the Guy Ritchie-directed Sherlock Holmes movies, Watson is portrayed by Jude Law. Law portrays Watson as knowledgeable, brave, strong-willed, and thoroughly professional, as well as a competent detective in his own right. Apart from being armed with his trademark sidearm, his film incarnation is also a capable swordsman. The film portrays Watson as having a gambling problem, which William S. Baring-Gould had inferred from a reference in “The Adventure of the Dancing Men” to Holmes keeping Watson’s cheque book locked in a drawer in his desk. Law also portrayed Watson in the 2011 sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.
In the first chapter of The Sign of the Four, Holmes comments on Watson’s first effort as a biographer: “I glanced over it. Honestly, I cannot congratulate you upon it. Detection is, or ought to be, an exact science and should be treated in the same cold and unemotional manner. You have attempted to tinge it with romanticism… The only point in the case which deserved mention was the curious analytical reasoning from effects to causes, by which I succeeded in unravelling it”; whereupon Watson admits, “I was annoyed at this criticism of a work which had been specially designed to please him. I confess, too, that I was irritated by the egotism which seemed to demand that every line of my pamphlet should be devoted to his own special doings”.In the animated TV series Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century (1999–2001), Holmes acquires a ‘new’ Watson in the form of a robot. The robot, having absorbed all lore of the original, believes itself to be Watson, and Holmes treats it as such, concluding that the “spirit” is Watson’s though the “body” is not. Holmes was a man of habits… and I had become one of them… a comrade… upon whose nerve he could place some reliance… a whetstone for his mind. I stimulated him… If I irritated him by a certain methodical slowness in my mentality, that irritation served only to make his own flame-like intuitions and impressions flash up the more vividly and swiftly. Such was my humble role in our alliance. Watson was played by actor André Morell in the 1959 film version of The Hound of the Baskervilles, wherein Morell preferred that his version of Watson should be closer to that originally depicted in Doyle’s stories, not Nigel Bruce’s interpretation. Other depictions include Robert Duvall opposite Nicol Williamson’s Holmes in The Seven-Per-Cent Solution (1978); Donald Houston, who played Watson to John Neville’s Holmes in A Study in Terror (1965); a rather belligerent, acerbic Watson portrayed by Colin Blakely in Billy Wilder’s The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970), in which Holmes was played by Robert Stephens (who starts the rumour that they are homosexual lovers to discourage female interest); and James Mason’s portrayal in Murder by Decree (1978), with Christopher Plummer as Holmes. Alan Cox played a teenage Watson in the 1985 film Young Sherlock Holmes, narrated by Michael Hordern as an older Watson.Actors to play Watson in early film adaptations of Sherlock Holmes include Edward Fielding (1916), Roland Young (1922), Ian Fleming (1931), Athole Stewart (The Speckled Band, 1931), Ian Hunter (The Sign of Four, 1932), Reginald Owen (1932) and Warburton Gamble (A Study in Scarlet, 1933). The series of Holmes films with Basil Rathbone as Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Watson portrayed the doctor as a lovable but incompetent assistant. Some later treatments have presented a more competent Watson.

Does Dr. Watson have a wife?

Carleton Hobbs portrayed Holmes in a series of BBC radio broadcasts that ran from 1952 to 1969, with Norman Shelley playing Watson. Many of these were broadcast on Children’s Hour. Of the many actors who have portrayed Holmes and Watson for the BBC, the Hobbs and Shelley duo is the longest running. The Holmes-Watson partnership, consisting of a “brilliant yet flawed detective” and a “humbler but dependable and sympathetic sidekick”, influenced the creation of similar teams in British detective fiction throughout the twentieth century, from detective Hercule Poirot and Poirot’s companion Captain Hastings (created by author Agatha Christie in 1920), to Colin Dexter’s Inspector Morse and Sergeant Lewis, introduced in 1975. Watson also influenced the creation of other fictional narrators, such as Bunny Manders (the sidekick of gentleman thief A. J. Raffles, created by E. W. Hornung in 1898) and the American character Archie Goodwin (the assistant of detective Nero Wolfe, created by Rex Stout in 1934). Author Kodō Nomura modeled his characters Heiji Zenigata and his sidekick Hachigoro on Holmes and Watson. In “The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier”, one of only two stories narrated by Holmes himself, the detective remarks about Watson: “I have often had occasion to point out to him how superficial are his accounts and to accuse him of pandering to popular taste instead of confining himself rigidly to facts and figures”, but the narrative style seldom differs, and Holmes confesses that Watson would have been the better choice to write the story, noting when he starts writing that he quickly realizes the importance of presenting the tale in a manner that would interest the reader. In any case, Holmes regularly referred to Watson as my “faithful friend and biographer”, and once exclaims, “I am lost without my Boswell”.

Stephen King, the American novelist, wrote a short story called “The Doctor’s Case” in the 1993 collection Nightmares & Dreamscapes, where Watson actually solves the case instead of Holmes. Watson appears as a supporting character in several of American author Laurie R. King’s Mary Russell detective novels.
In 1998, Imagination Theatre received the rights from the estate of Dame Jean Conan Doyle to produce new radio stories of Holmes and Watson. Lawrence Albert plays Watson to the Holmes of first John Gilbert and later John Patrick Lowrie in the radio series The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Lowrie and Albert also played Holmes and Watson respectively in The Classic Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, which adapted all of Doyle’s short stories and novels.Watson used to be an athlete: it is mentioned in “The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire” (1924) that he used to play rugby union for Blackheath, but he fears his physical condition has declined since that point. In “The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton” (1899), Watson is described as “a middle-sized, strongly built man—square jaw, thick neck, moustache…” In “His Last Bow”, set in August 1914, Watson is described as “…a heavily built, elderly man with a grey moustache…”.In A Study in Scarlet, having just returned from Afghanistan, Watson is described “as thin as a lath and as brown as a nut.” In subsequent texts, he is variously described as strongly built, of a stature either average or slightly above average, with a thick, strong neck and a small moustache.Claude King played Watson in the 1910 premiere of The Speckled Band. In the 1923 play The Return of Sherlock Holmes, Watson was played by H. G. Stoker. In the 1965 musical Baker Street, he was played by Peter Sallis.

Watson, portrayed by Colin Starkey, appears briefly in the 2015 film Mr. Holmes (although he has no dialogue and his face is not shown). Reflecting on his career as a detective, Holmes (Ian McKellen) comments that Watson took considerable latitude in writing up the cases for publication, to the point that he views the finished products as little more than “penny dreadfuls”. Holmes remarks that several key details of his literary counterpart, including his pipe, deerstalker hat, and 221B Baker Street address, were entirely fictitious.
Watson never masters Holmes’s deductive methods, but he can be astute enough to follow his friend’s reasoning after the fact. In “The Adventure of the Norwood Builder,” Holmes notes that John Hector McFarlane is “a bachelor, a solicitor, a Freemason, and an asthmatic”. Watson comments as narrator: “Familiar as I was with my friend’s methods, it was not difficult for me to follow his deductions, and to observe the untidiness of attire, the sheaf of legal papers, the watch-charm, and the breathing which had prompted them.” Similar episodes occur in “The Adventure of the Devil’s Foot,” “The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist”, and “The Adventure of the Resident Patient.” In “The Adventure of the Red Circle”, we find a rare instance in which Watson rather than Holmes correctly deduces a fact of value. In The Hound of the Baskervilles, Watson shows that he has picked up some of Holmes’s skills at dealing with people from whom information is desired. (As he observes to the reader, “I have not lived for years with Sherlock Holmes for nothing.” )The year of Watson’s birth is not stated in the stories. William S. Baring-Gould and Leslie S. Klinger estimate that Watson was born in 1852. June Thomson concludes that Watson was probably born either in 1852 or 1853. According to Thomson, most commentators accept 1852 as the year of Watson’s birth.

Watson was portrayed by David Burke and later by Edward Hardwicke in the 1980s and 1990s television series The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Return of Sherlock Holmes, The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes and The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, all starring Jeremy Brett as Holmes.
Sometimes Watson (and through him, Doyle) seems determined to stop publishing stories about Holmes: in “The Adventure of the Second Stain”, Watson declares that he had intended the previous story (“The Adventure of the Abbey Grange”) “to be the last of those exploits of my friend, Mr Sherlock Holmes, which I should ever communicate to the public”, but later decided that “this long series of episodes should culminate in the most important international case which he has ever been called upon to handle” (“The Second Stain” being that case). Despite this, it was succeeded by twenty other stories.

In the Soviet The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson television film series, directed by Igor Maslennikov, Watson was played by Vitaly Solomin. The Telegraph included Solomin in their list of the 10 top actors to play Dr Watson.
In the 2018 Japanese drama series Miss Sherlock both lead characters are re-imagined as female. Dr. Wato Tachibana (Shihori Kanjiya) meets Sara “Sherlock” Futaba (Yuko Takeuchi) after becoming the witness of her mentor’s death. Soon she assists her in this event’s investigation and becomes her flatmate, friend and assistant. Sherlock calls her “Wato-san”, which sounds similar to “Watson”.

The 2012 CBS show Elementary, set in New York City, changes the character to an Asian American woman, Dr. Joan Watson (Lucy Liu), an ex-surgeon turned sober companion.Watson appears at the start of The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures (2015), where he is murdered while teaching in Japan. His role as an assistant to Sherlock Holmes is instead filled by another character named Iris Watson, who claims to be his daughter and uses “Dr. John H. Watson” as a pen name. Both Watsons had their names changed to Wilson due to copyright concerns in international releases. American author Michael Mallory began a series of stories in the mid-1990s featuring Watson’s mysterious second wife, whom he called Amelia Watson. In Sherlock Holmes’s War of the Worlds, Watson’s second wife is Violet Hunter, from “The Adventure of the Copper Beeches”. At the beginning of A Study in Scarlet, Watson states he had “neither kith nor kin in England”. In The Sign of the Four, it is established that his father and older brother are deceased, and that both had the same first name beginning with “H”, when Holmes examines an old watch in Watson’s possession, which was formerly his father’s before it was inherited by his brother. Holmes estimates the watch to have a value of 50 guineas. Holmes deduced from the watch that Watson’s brother was “a man of untidy habits—very untidy and careless. He was left with good prospects, but he threw away his chances, lived for some time in poverty with occasional short intervals of prosperity, and finally, taking to drink, he died”. Holmes explains his reasoning: the initials on the watch, “H. W.”, as well as the 50-year-old date of the watch tell Holmes that it belonged to Watson’s father (he had the same surname as Watson) and was passed down to Watson’s elder brother; his untidiness from the fact that the outside of the watchcase is dented (from being in the same pocket with coins and keys). His good prospects is deduced from the fact that if he inherited an expensive fifty-guinea watch, he must have inherited substantial wealth as well. His poverty is evident from the fact that inside the watch case are 4 claim numbers scratched by pawnbrokers; his prosperity is from the fact he was able to redeem the watch; his heavy drinking is from the fact that around the watch winding hole are scratches from the key—an unsteady drunkard’s hand trying to wind the watch up at night.Watson is intelligent, if lacking in Holmes’s insight, and serves as a perfect foil for Holmes: the archetypal late Victorian/Edwardian gentleman against the brilliant, emotionally detached analytical machine. Furthermore, he is considered an excellent doctor and surgeon, especially by Holmes. For instance, in “The Adventure of the Dying Detective”, Holmes creates a ruse that he is deathly ill to lure a suspect to his presence, which must fool Watson as well during its enactment. To that effect, in addition to elaborate makeup and starving himself for a few days for the necessary appearance, Holmes firmly claims to Watson that he is highly contagious to the touch, knowing full well that the doctor would immediately deduce his true medical condition upon examination. Watson shares some similarities with the narrator of Edgar Allan Poe’s stories about fictional detective C. Auguste Dupin, created in 1841, but unlike Watson, Poe’s narrator remains unnamed. Watson sometimes attempts to solve crimes on his own, using Holmes’s methods. For example, in The Hound of the Baskervilles, Watson efficiently clears up several of the many mysteries confronting the pair, including Barrymore’s strange candle movements turning out to be signals to his brother-in-law Seldan, and Holmes praises him for his zeal and intelligence. However, because he is not endowed with Holmes’s almost-superhuman ability to focus on the essential details of the case and Holmes’s extraordinary range of recondite, specialised knowledge, Watson meets with limited success in other cases. Holmes summed up the problem that Watson confronted in one memorable rebuke from “A Scandal in Bohemia”: “Quite so… you see, but you do not observe.” In “The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist,” Watson’s attempts to assist Holmes’s investigation prove unsuccessful because of his unimaginative approach, for example, asking a London estate agent who lives in a particular country residence. (According to Holmes, what he should have done was “gone to the nearest public house” and listened to the gossip.) Watson is too guileless to be a proper detective. And yet, as Holmes acknowledges, Watson has unexpected depths about him; for example, he has a definite strain of “pawky humour”, as Holmes observes in The Valley of Fear.

Derek Waring played Watson in the 1989 London premiere of Sherlock Holmes: The Musical. Lucas Hall portrayed Watson in the 2015 premiere of Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery. Watson’s first name is mentioned on only four occasions. Part one of the first Sherlock Holmes story, A Study in Scarlet, is subtitled Being a reprint from the Reminiscences of John H. Watson, M.D., Late of the Army Medical Department. The preface of the collection His Last Bow is signed “John H. Watson, M.D.”, and in “The Problem of Thor Bridge”, Watson says that his dispatch box is labelled “John H. Watson, M.D.” His wife Mary Watson appears to refer to him as “James” in “The Man with the Twisted Lip”; Dorothy L. Sayers speculated that Mary may be using his middle name Hamish (an Anglicisation of Sheumais, the vocative form of Seumas, the Scottish Gaelic for James), though Doyle himself never addresses this beyond including the initial. David W. Merrell, on the other hand, concludes that Mary is not referring to her husband at all but rather to (the surname of) their servant. The 2015 mashup anime film The Empire of Corpses features a younger, re-imagined Watson as the protagonist, in a steampunk world where the dead are reanimated and used as a labor force. He was voiced by Yoshimasa Hosoya in Japanese, and Jason Liebrecht in the English dub.In the 2014 Japanese puppetry series Sherlock Holmes, Watson, a doctor’s son and transfer student from Australia, becomes the roommate of Sherlock Holmes in 221B of Baker House. Though initially at a loss as to how to deal with Holmes, he becomes close to his strange roommate. He records Holmes’ investigation in a notebook known as “Watoson memo” (“Memo of John H. Watson”) and writes articles based on it for the school’s wall newspaper. Wataru Takagi voices him and narrates the show. In the 1988 parody film Without a Clue, the roles of a witless Watson and an extremely intelligent Holmes are reversed. In the film, Holmes (Michael Caine) is an invention of Watson (Ben Kingsley) played by an alcoholic actor; when Watson initially offers suggestions on how to solve a case to some visiting policemen, he is at the time applying for a post in an exclusive medical practice and so invents the fictional Holmes to avoid attracting attention to himself. He continues the “lie” of Holmes’s existence after he fails to get the post. At the same time, Watson becomes increasingly frustrated that his own talents are unrecognised, and unavailingly attempts to win celebrity for himself as “the Crime Doctor.” Watson is also represented as being very discreet in character. The events related in “The Adventure of the Second Stain” are supposedly very sensitive: “If in telling the story I seem to be somewhat vague in certain details, the public will readily understand that there is an excellent reason for my reticence. It was, then, in a year, and even in a decade, that shall be nameless, that upon one Tuesday morning in autumn we found two visitors of European fame within the walls of our humble room in Baker Street.” Furthermore, in “The Adventure of the Veiled Lodger,” Watson notes that he has “made a slight change of name and place” when presenting that story. Here he is direct about a method of preserving discretion and confidentiality that other scholars have inferred from the stories, with pseudonyms replacing the “real” names of clients, witnesses, and culprits alike and altered place-names replacing the real locations.

At the beginning of “The Adventure of the Veiled Lodger”, Watson makes strong claims about “the discretion and high sense of professional honour” that govern his work as Holmes’s biographer, but they do not keep Watson from expressing himself and quoting Holmes with candour of their antagonists and their clients. In “The Red-Headed League”, for example, Watson introduces Jabez Wilson: “Our visitor bore every mark of being an average commonplace British tradesman, obese, pompous, and slow”—wearing “a not over-clean black frock-coat”.
Watson is endowed with a strong sense of honour. At the beginning of “The Adventure of the Veiled Lodger,” Watson makes strong claims about “the discretion and high sense of professional honour” that govern his work as Holmes’s biographer, but discretion and professional honour do not block Watson from expressing himself and quoting Holmes with remarkable candor on the characters of their antagonists and their clients. Despite Watson’s frequent expressions of admiration and friendship for Holmes, the many stresses and strains of living and working with the detective make themselves evident in Watson’s occasional harshness of character. The most controversial of such matters is Watson’s candour about Holmes’s drug use. Though the use of cocaine was legal and common in Holmes’s era, Watson directly criticises Holmes’s habits. Watson witnesses Holmes’s skills of deduction on their first case together, concerning a series of murders related to Mormon intrigue. When the case is solved, Watson is angered that Holmes is not given any credit for it by the press. When Holmes refuses to record and publish his account of the adventure, Watson endeavours to do so himself. In time, Holmes and Watson become close friends. In the later stories, written after Holmes’s retirement (c. 1903–04), Watson repeatedly refers to “notes of many hundreds of cases to which I have never alluded”, on grounds that after Holmes’s retirement, the detective showed reluctance “to the continued publication of his experiences. So long as he was in actual professional practice the records of his successes were of some practical value to him, but since he has definitely retired…notoriety has become hateful to him” (“The Adventure of the Second Stain”). After Holmes’s retirement, Watson often cites special permission from his friend for the publication of further stories, but received occasional unsolicited suggestions from Holmes of what stories to tell, as noted at the beginning of “The Adventure of the Devil’s Foot”.

What happened with Jeff Watson and Night Ranger?
Watson has also released solo albums. In 2007, he was fired by the three other members of Night Ranger through a letter from their attorney.
In “The Adventure of Silver Blaze”, Holmes confesses: “I made a blunder, my dear Watson—which is, I am afraid, a more common occurrence than anyone would think who only knew me through your memoirs”; and in The Hound of the Baskervilles, chapters 5–6, Holmes says: “Watson, Watson, if you are an honest man you will record this also and set it against my successes!”; whereas in his prologue to “The Adventure of the Yellow Face”, Watson himself remarked: “In publishing these short sketches [of Holmes’s cases] … it is only natural that I should dwell rather upon his successes than upon his failures”, on grounds that where Holmes failed, often nobody else succeeded.Nigel Bruce reprised his film role of Watson on the radio opposite first Basil Rathbone, then Tom Conway as Holmes for most of the 1940s radio series The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Different actors played Watson in later seasons.

Will Dr. Jeff be back?

His death prompted various tributes from those in the media and former colleagues. ABC broadcaster Phillip Adams described Watson as a “major figure in the history of the ABC” while Getaway reporter Catriona Rowntree remembered him as someone who was a “joy to be with” and as someone who had had an encyclopedic knowledge of all things related to aviation.

In a report about his death, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation credited Watson with being a man who “helped pioneer popular science television in Australia.”Watson’s ambitions of becoming a pilot were quashed when he suffered a detached retina after he was injured when a snowball containing a rock was thrown at him during his childhood.After the ABC decided not to continue with the show, preferring to establish another science program called Quantum, Towards 2000 was reworked for the Seven Network. The show was renamed to Beyond 2000 with Watson continuing on as a reporter. Watson was praised for his entertaining and passionate style of reporting, which drew comparisons to “The Nutty Professor” in the media.

He continued with Getaway until he left at the end of 1998 and was succeeded by Ben Dark.

Did Dr Watson remarry?
He was married at least two times. With Mary Morstan in 1889 (she was Sherlock Holmes’ client in The Sign of Four (SIGN, 2819) and to another woman in 1903 (BLAN, 10) as Mary Morstan died between 1891 and 1894 (unknown cause).
The first documentary he produced under Jeff Watson Productions was Spitfire Over Australia in 1989. Watson subsequently produced further documentaries including a 1999 biographical film about Sidney Cotton.He returned to the ABC in early 1979 as the host of Statewide. Later that year, Watson filmed a television pilot for a new science and technology show which was given the working title of Today Tomorrow which Watson later described as “awfully dull”. It was later renamed Towards 2000 and became a success for the ABC with the original four seasons airing between 1981 and 1984.

Throughout his career, Watson produced and presented many documentaries relating to the aviation field as well as writing a number of books on the subject.

In 2007, Watson produced a documentary called Southend to Sydney – The Return of the 707 which featured him flying from England to Australia with John Travolta following the restoration of a 50-year-old Qantas Boeing 707.

The duo runs the Planned Pethood Plus, an animal health centre in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. Dr. Young is esteemed for her astounding expertise on matters animal health.

Dr. Jeff Young was born on 14th April 1965 and was raised in a ranch setting where his interest in caring for animals sparked. He attended Colorado State University and, upon graduating, secured a job at Fort Collins as an animal welfare coordinator.
A prolific and devoted vet, Dr. Young, is portrayed as a “charming legend.” His animal works continue to gain reputation from his Denver neighbourhood and the world beyond. Jeff has also been a source of comfort to animal activists who take neglected animals to his clinic for care.Yes. The love birds’ chemistry is unquestionable, and age is not a hindrance. Jeff and Petra live together above their clinic to combat their hectic schedules.

Jeff has been spotted showing affection to his current wife in several instances at their vet hospital. The couple has no children together. However, Jeff and his ex-wife Burns have three adult children, which make Petra their step-mother.
Petra and Jeff first met in 2010 when she was studying animal health in college. Her connections with the Planned Pethood founder, Jeff, landed her a job at the vet station. Dr. Petra Young was profoundly valued in the facility for her abilities and soft published an article about Sean Edward Hartman. The multitalented Sean Edward is a Canadian-American who is an actor, a graphic designer, voice artist and writer. He is also the son of the renowned actor late Phil Hartman.

Although she resides in America, Petra Young’s nationality is Slovakian. The fine-looking veterinary likes to colour her hair reddish-brown, an aspect that compliments her skin tone.

As of 2018, sources estimate Dr. Petra’s assets to be more than $1,000,000, which she accumulates from her vet profession, and TV appearances. Her husband, Dr. Young’s wealth is projected to be $2,000,000, and by virtue of being his wife, Petra enjoys even more income. Based on the hardworking vet’s undertakings, her wealth is expected to continue rising.
Petra Young’s popularity stems from her feature in Dr. Jeff: Rocky Mountain Vet: Cat Case Files and Dr. Jeff: Double Dose. Dr. Petra’s husband is a revered veterinary in the US. He is also a cherished television vet being the producer of the two documentaries.She hasn’t exposed much about her initial life, as she appreciates keeping some personal facts away from public scrutiny. Although Dr. Petra is married to a fellow work-mate and celebrity, she is cryptic about their romance life.Acknowledged for her prolific career in veterinaries, Dr. Petra Young has saved numerous animals all over the US. Her exemplary roles in caring for animals are unmatched, and there’s no question whether her motive for her career is money or passion. Petra loves doing what she does.

As her involvement at the animal centre expanded, she gradually warmed Dr. Young’s heart. Jeff was at that time, going through a rough period in his first marriage, and he cherished Mackova’s presence in the clinic. Soon after divorcing his ex-wife, Deb Burns, Jeff married Petra Young in 2014.”I may be considered a little bit of an eccentric or oddball because I have a sign in the back of my truck stating that my wife died begging for air in the Bloomington Hospital,” Watson says. “But, you work with what you have to work with.” Following Leanne’s death, the hospital ordered two separate autopsies and two different conclusions were drawn. Neither report, however, lists Ativan as the cause of death. Lawyers who represent plaintiffs stand to gain from larger payouts and typically do not favor malpractice award caps because they say it hinders sufficient compensation. Conversely, lawyers who represent defendants, such as the Bloomington Hospital, are more inclined to support Tort reform and caps on awards because they say these legislative tools ward off frivolous lawsuits.

Did Dr. Jeff pass away?
Many people believed that the vet had died of cancer when he went off from the planet show for some time, but that is not the case as he is alive to this day.
Watson went on to settle with the Bloomington Hospital and says he now regrets it. He says he knew very little about Indiana malpractice laws when he settled and that many details about his wife’s treatment have come to light since he took the money.The statement reads: “Indiana University Health Bloomington holds our patients’ safety as our number one priority and takes any matters of quality or safety very seriously. We regret any time a family suffers the loss of a loved one. We have actively responded to the concerns and questions raised by Mrs. Watson’s family and believe we have resolved any issues of concern with the family.”

Jeremy Dilts, a medical malpractice defendant lawyer with the Carson Boxberger law firm, also in Bloomington, says frivolous lawsuits are the primary concern of Tort reform.
“You have to be careful with Ativan. You have to be careful giving it to somebody who has compromised respiratory function,” Jeff Watson says. “You have to be careful giving it to somebody who is on drugs that suppress the central nervous system. They knew she was on drugs that suppress the central nervous system. They knew she was on drugs for someone with a compromised respiratory function, but they gave it to her anyway.”

In some other states, plaintiffs can receive millions from health care providers depending on things such as the degree of malpractice, the victim’s earning potential over their lifetime, and projected health care costs.
A Spencer resident and nationally acclaimed bear trainer, Jeff Watson, is holding a rally on Sunday, December 11 in front of the Indiana University Health Bloomington Hospital because of what he calls unanswered questions regarding his wife’s death.

“Screening out and putting in place a screening process for even non-frivolous but just not very good or non-meritorious claims before it ever sees the light of a courtroom, I think, is a good idea and I think it’s been fairly effective,” he says.In Indiana, the most a malpractice defendant can be liable for is $250 thousand dollars, which, in some cases, can then be supplemented by a panel that can award up to $1 million dollars from the Patient’s Compensation Fund, which is essentially a reinsurance fund that health care providers pay into for occasions such as this.

“As I tell my clients who are first time defendants, if you choose to become a doctor or health care provider the issue isn’t if you will ever be sued, the issue is when and how often,” Dilts says.
Although the hospital says it considers the issue resolved, Jeff Watson is still looking for answers. He has submitted a list of questions regarding his wife’s death but says his correspondence dating back several years has gone unanswered.

Leanne Watson died in the Bloomington Hospital emergency room three years ago. Now, her husband drives around Bloomington with a billboard mounted on the back of his truck. He says the sign and the rally are both meant to raise awareness because the hospital refuses to address his concerns.
“They’re plenty of things you can do to get your pound of flesh,” Watson says. “They’re plenty of things you can do to try to get some vindication. Most of them aren’t legal. The only legal remedy you have in the state of Indiana in a medical malpractice case is to sue the health care provider and get a judgment.”Jeff was a longtime member of the New Philadelphia Elks and New Philadelphia AmVets 1338.He was also an avid fan of Ohio State Football, the Cleveland Browns and a longtime fan of NASCAR with his favorite drivers being Richard Petty and Jeff Gordon. Jeff was also inducted as a member of the Dover-New Philadelphia USBC Bowling Hall of Fame.
