Storyline

An accidental discovery of a drug for the mass unconscious and a naive schoolteacher's ardor lead to personal and almost global disaster. Harper's world edges on nightmares between life and death, waking and dreaming, insanity and sanity. Somewhere this crosses the line between Seconds (1966) and On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969). Written by Rick Razo <wdrazo@prodigy.net>

Unique mind-stretcher with a powerful sense of atmosphere
18 May 2003 | by (Southampton, England) – See all my reviews

Oktober isn't for everyone but if you like this kind of offbeat, twilight-zoney drama the chances are that you'll like it a lot. Tompkinson is a revelation and gives the performance of his career to date. Producers keep casting him in comedies but this proves that his true strength is as a dark and haunted leading man. Id have liked some clearer explanation of how the drug is supposed to work but other than that I think its best the way we are shown what's happening and allowed to figure it out for ourselves. The merry-go-round with the dead Russians on it ranks with the scariest things I've ever seen in a TV drama. Deserves to take its place amongst the classics of British cult TV.
