Conspiracies, plots, and paranoia are sweeping through London in the last days of the eighteenth century, and James Tilly Matthews has been caught under false pretenses and locked up in the city's vast, crumbling asylum. As his wife, Margaret, tries desperately to free him, political forces conspire to keep him locked up. Margaret's chief adversary is John Haslam, the asylum's chief apothecary, a man torn between his conscience and the lure of scientific discovery: as James becomes more famous—and more unhinged—he becomes a valuable specimen for the young doctor and a pawn in a grand political conspiracy. Based on real characters and events, 'Bedlam' is a brilliant evocation of a city teetering between darkness and light, and a moving study of every kind of madness.
