“[re: how did Osgood end up with the 4th Doctor’s scarf in DotD]
The story is too scandalous to relate. But you’ll notice the Curator *wasn’t* wearing that scarf - and let’s be honest, you might have expected him to. Look, it’s not my place to start rumours here, but clearly there’s life in the old dog yet.” -Steven Moffat
Hey there! whovianfloozy had the same idea, and same interpretation of that line. In my health care system, glucagon is usually reserved for inpatient treatment of hypoglycemia—this is extremely uncommon for outpatients. If our diabetic patients are severely hypoglycemic, then we quite simply take them off hypoglycemic drugs (like insulin, sulfonylureas, etc). Glucagon is actually a kit—vial+syringe, and you need to mix it up before you administer it, so what Carver used doesn’t look like glucagon—which, granted, could just be Hollywood-izing. The main thing for me though why I ruled this out is that even per the diabetes guidelines, glucagon is a drug that you train other people to administer. You’re supposed to have it administered to you when you’re unconscious, not do it to yourself—this is even in the product labeling (at least for Lilly, who is the main manufacturer). If you’re hypoglycemic and conscious, standard of care is to have soda/juice/candy and follow it up with a meal (because in matters of blood sugar, just like in life, what goes up must come down lol). So could it be glucagon… ? Yes, if it’s being inappropriately used (same is true of a handful of other agents which are usually reserved for inpatients). It would be so inappropriate to have Hollywood romanticizing the completely incorrect use of something that potent, that could screw you up so badly if you mess it up. I mean… forget about my being snarky with Chris Chibnall for his occasionally lackluster Doctor Who scripts—here I would be absolutely livid with him for giving millions of diabetes patients the idea that what Carver did is remotely safe, or correct.
From a writing perspective, it would be interesting if Carver is shown to be a diabetic, but I’m curious where they would take that concept if they wanted to ramp up the drama. With a cardiac dysrhythmia, it was easy in Broadchurch because that’s pretty scary stuff—that can certainly kill people. Diabetes on its own takes a lot longer to kill you and doesn’t seem quite as scary, in part because it’s so common and so chronic. “I’m being forced out of the police department because I have a heart condition” has a slightly more sinister ring to it than “I’m being forced out of the police department because I have low blood sugar.” Unless they made his hypoglycemia secondary to something like, idk, a tumor or something, I’m curious as to where they’d find the drama impact. Tens of millions of people have diabetes, and what Carver did is nothing like what the vast majority of them would ever experience, kwim?
So… tl;dr it COULD be, but I hope it’s not, not the least of reasons for which is that it what he did would be dangerous and potentially give patients unsafe ideas and demonstrate incorrect use of a very potent agent.
