In the early 1960s, a doctor at a mental ward sheds his ethical restraints in an effort to pioneer a new form of "mental cleansing" at the behest of a private research group. The Control Group is a chilling, 10-part historical fiction for mature audiences. Listener discretion is advised due to realistic depictions of violence and graphic sexuality. Binge the entire season now with headphones for a fully immersive experience.

"Binging this show and it's so scary (in the right way). Every little quirk, squeek, tick, background noise and smalltalk adds to an immersive soundscape and with some stellar acting this show has me at the edge of my seat. So very well done. "
