Health center- more like mental ward
14 April 1999 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

A very queer ( in a good way) piece of BBC television. The setting in a university health center- with lots of nuns running around, and strange plots on takeovers. I recognized the grounds as U. of Keele- but the interiors were shot other places- making it even more bizarre. One of the better brit coms to come to the states.
