Derren Brown: Fear and Faith (2012) "Derren Brown: Fear and Faith" is the second of Brown's two-part specials which first aired on Friday 9 November 2012. It focuses on the placebo effect. In the first programme, Brown sets up a fake pharmaceutical company, 'Cicero Pharmaceutical Solutions', which claims to have developed a drug named 'Rumyodin', with the ability to inhibit fear.
In actual fact the pill is a placebo that is merely sugar. The placebo effect, amplified by the convincing façade of Cicero, helps most of the subjects of the fake clinical trial of Rumyodin overcome their fears. It is shown that Brown repeated the experiment with separate groups, to each of whom it was claimed Rumyodin had different beneficial effects, such as smoking cessation and allergy relief, again with positive results. By the end of the programme Brown reveals that 'Rumyodin' is an anagram of 'your mind'.
Not sure how the OP connects this to Satan or what ever... I'm guessing the second episode must be more controversial. He probably takes away their fear of death or fear of punishment by God or something. Anyone know if the next episode is available anywhere yet?
He has done so much good for the lives of so many people... if he is linked to Satan, then Satan is clearly the good guy who actually does something tangible to help people.
I am not sure when part 2 is but I can't wait. I plan on checking you tube periodically, I was surprised to find this so soon after airing.

And Derren doesn't seem to mind that his videos are shared freely on YouTube because they don't seem to get removed. That really says a lot about the guy...
