Sir: Dr Peter Davies (letter, 14 December) reports on work which suggests that randomly selected adults are not influenced by fictional violence in the same way as when they view film of real violence. Unfortunately, his own formulation reveals the limits of its usefulness: "Normal adults can differentiate between fantasy and reality." Perhaps he would consider arranging a study to determine the effect of fictional violence on adults who are not normal.
