In Victorian London, Dr Mortimer Granville (Dancy) finds a new job with Dr. Robert Dalrymple (Pryce), London’s foremost specialist in women’s medicine, and an expert in ‘hysteria’. Dalrymple’s ‘manual massage’ cure is shockingly effective, and the handsome Granville soon has female patients queuing out the door. After he starts to develop repetitive strain injury, his friend Edmund St. John-Smythe (Everett), invents a mechanical vibrating device that provides relief for both Granville and millions of women worldwide.
