With a history of mental illness, and he´s a troubled man who sees visions of the dead, the past and ghosts.

Editor's NoteAn exercise in supernatural horror chic, this offbeat British series from the BBC intertwines the lives of numerous characters at a luxury apartment complex christened Bedlam Heights. The place has an exceptionally shady past, including pre-Victorian origins as a mental asylum, and soon various instances of supernatural activity manifest themselves, holding many of the residents in a vice of terror. These individuals include: building renovator Kate, computer nerd Ryan; romantically washed-up Molly, and others. These residents can't help but feel that something is seriously awry, and it takes Kate's emotionally sensitive cousin, the handyman Jed, to interpret the otherworldly goings-on, thanks to his ability to see the spirits that occupy the rooms and halls at Bedlam. This box set contains all of Season One of the program.
