David Tennant chats to BBC Arts about his latest role in the new film, Mad To Be Normal were he plays the pioneering psychiatrist R.D. Laing whose radical views on mental illness often brought him into conflict with other medical professionals.
Mad To Be Normal, written and directed by Laing's biographer Robert Mullan, is based on the period in the late 1960s when Laing opened the controversial anti-psychiatry facility at Kingsley Hall in London where patients experiencing psychosis and staff lived together as equals. Co-starring Elisabeth Moss, Michael Gambon and Gabriel Byrne, the film goes on general release on Thursday 6th April.
