Under the brooding - if roving - eye of Dr Michael Swan wander inmates William, frail and hallucinating, Eddie, dreaming of the sea, and lumbering and mutely psychotic Miller. There's love in the laundry, squabbling in the Wet Weather Room and a slide show every second Wednesday; and Dee, who claims she could have had an affair with Gorbachov, will fight to preserve it all.
