On the run at Christmas


Great spot here in Antigua by Sam: Christmas in paradise, and who's to say he hasn't earned it. Notably he's the only one not wearing dark glasses.

Wearing a toupee




He looks a proper ladykiller in that toupee and tie. Which is more than you can say about Mr Jefferies (second from right).

At the Leveson Enquiry


Consistent with his views on the medical sector, he is understood to favour a 'light touch' approach to regulation.

Debating God on the BBC


Here he is, and posing as a man of God. Who next for the BBC? Jimmy Savile?

At the cashpoint


Enjoying a crafty withdrawal from someone's post office account there

On the Circle Line


Tremendous spot this - and showing great bravery on the part of the taker. We're pretty sure it's him

Meeting D:Ream

Here's Harold with members of D:Ream in both their 90s heyday. 


Two doctors on call here: a Doctor of Physics (right) and a Doctor of Death (centre).

At the British Museum

In this grainy snap, he looks to be checking the film of a confiscated camera.


 Luckily, our quick-thinking contributor was able to bag him on his mobile - before spotting him again the next day in the Royal College of Surgeons.


Dr Death, meet Mr Death.

A relaxing punt



Spotter Anna in Cambridge takes credit here. And she can confirm that he's in no hurry to lose those pounds - not the way he did patients.

Piling on the pounds



Only the British Carvery or a British Burger will do for Great Britain's gold medallist of death

At dinner with friends


No wonder the lady looks uncomfortable. She's been on edge ever since she saw the seating plan.

Directing traffic in Leeds


Doing some well-earned community service on the Dewsbury Road outside the Junction Pub, Leeds. Note that, yet again, the police leave it late before acting.

At Baron's Court tube


Excellent sighting here, despite those dark glasses. In fact they just give it away.

On a corporate video



Good to see the doctor letting his hair down, and belting out 'Oh Happy Day'

Friday, 6 July 2012

In the Royal Box


Heads are going to roll about this one. He's moved straight in on that old lady.

Discovering the Higgs boson



A sense of joy and fulfillment he hasn't felt since the hospital governors took him off night duty.

At the tennis


On a date at Wimbledon with some unsuspecting old dear (and of course he's chosen to watch the ladies).

Monday, 25 June 2012

Dressed like Lecter


Sloping off round the corner, a straw hat pulled over his head. Not having an old friend for dinner perhaps, but certainly willing to offer a free consultation.

On Songs of Praise



Lying low with the Truro Cathedral Choir. Does he realise he's been spotted? He doesn't like the look of that camera.

Tuesday, 19 June 2012

Narrow escape


This was a frustrating near-spot. But he's clearly there, pretending to read his newspaper.

Monday, 18 June 2012

On BBC food programme



Here he is, popping up on some food programme - but looking trim for it. Reader Mike, who got him to pose awkwardly for this snap, has this tip: don't try the salmon mousse.

The doctor will see you now


Excellent spot by this eagle-eyed reader from Scotland. Sadly it looks like his number's up - he's been clocked.

Thursday, 14 June 2012

Attending a science conference














He wouldn't have missed this chance to mix with the other great scientific minds of his generation. Is that him on the right trying to cover his face?



Aha! A few decoys in the crowd, but those joke-shop glasses won't fool anyone.

And then, like that... he was gone


Contributor James writes: "Moments earlier this was a picture of Shipman on a bicycle." No points.

Saturday, 9 June 2012

On his bike


Spotted at Shadwell underground station, though the picture is a little blurry. The contributor, who wished to remain anonymous, notes: "I was trembling with nerves at having found him."

Friday, 8 June 2012

Happy Eater


Good attempt at misdirection here, but the wily old cove's seen through the cover-up. No point teaching him to suck eggs.

Wednesday, 6 June 2012

Thinning on top


If this sighting can be confirmed, then he's losing some of that handsome thatch that made him such a ladykiller.

Saturday, 2 June 2012

Relaxing at home


Shipman posing as some kind of respectable weapons expert. He can't hide that distant, haunted look however.

Wednesday, 30 May 2012

Looking shifty


Spotter Ian admits this is less than compelling evidence, but assures us this was a reliable identification - despite the hat and the hidden face.

"He turned away after spotting a middle-aged lady across the road," he sighs.

Hipster Shipman


Scampering off to some media event in Soho, putting an old bird to flight as he does so. For old times' sake.

Lookalike competition


The height of cunning - turning up to a Harold Shipman Lookalike Competition in Australia. He finished third.

"I did not kill your wife"












The good doctor considers a lifetime behind bars for a crime he did commit.
