Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The setting for the three-part British miniseries Turning World was a decrepit Victorian asylum. Slated to be demolished by a group of forward-thinking civic leaders, the asylum was championed by its head doctor, an East Indian named Khan (played by Roshan Seth of Buddha of Suburbia fame). The rest of the story was devoted to Dr. Khan's efforts to save the establishment and protect his hapless patients. Turning World was broadcast by Britain's Channel 4 in 1997.
