Raucous medical comedy set in Victorian London about four pioneers, friends and rivals – fighting to make a mark on the world and save lives.
Meanwhile, Caroline, Robert’s headstrong wife, finds herself frustrated with her lot as a housewife and seeks help from Robert’s friend William – a kind but anxious alienist – an early psychiatrist – who understands her better than her own husband does. He wants to help her with phrenology treatment, but that involves touching her on an intimate area – her head. The lines are blurred when it becomes clear Caroline wants more than just psychiatry from William, and he finds himself torn between being a friend to Robert and a doctor to Caroline.
