    A woman doctor arrives at a mental hospital and sees a ghost who apparently was locked up in 1859 because she did not please her husband. The conditions at the time were horrible. She wrote her story and hid it. Now she wants the doctor to find it. This is a 1997 tv series and is currently airing in Malaysia. I just watch the first episode and I felt that this series is great although it is a little bit old. Not a good episode. The only thing I don't understand is--why can't the patient (Alice) just tell the doctor where she hidden the poem instead of let the doctor experience the pain she had?moreless

    • Narrator: (closing) In between the dark and the light, where time has no meaning, silenced voices may be heard again and the cold of the grave may rekindle some light and warmth in the living.

    • Narrator: (opening) The Hanwell Asylum for the Insane first opened it's doors in 1833. Today the people who work there call it the Hanwell Instititute, but it's mission is still the same: To wage hand to hand combat with mental illness. In an era of government cutbacks, Hanwell is fighting to survive. It is also, as Carolyn Ryan will soon discover, haunted by it's terrible past.
