This can be read as a sort of allegory, with time itself the universal drug that can make a person change utterly. Those of us with an inbuilt resistance to it are left high and dry, desperately wanting to talk to our old friend Dr Jekyll but faced only with the grim and merciless reality of Mr Hyde. The drug is a thief that robs us of our loved ones as surely as death does.

Oh, very nice. I should reread this, it's been ages. Robertson Davies has a v amusing riff on a proposed dramatization of it in his World of Wonders trilogy.
