Matt Berry plays a twisted regression therapist, who takes his patients on a surreal and unsettling journey into their unsuspecting sub-conscious. Each episode sees the doctor dealing with a different client. As the patient is put under hypnosis, we 'enter' their mind, and all the various situations the hypnotherapist takes them through are played out for us to hear. The series shows that the cure can sometimes be worse than the disease.

For three decades, Rupert Hardacre was one of the big beasts of advertising, the self-proclaimed "British David Ogilvy". He worked hard, played hard, and lived hard. But he fell harder... Driven out of every reputable agency in town for drinking all their whiskey and sleeping with all their wives, he used the remains of his fortune to found Hardacre's, the best (and only) advertising agency on the M25. Now he's so confident that his name alone will take him back to the top, he's happy...
