REVIEW: Mad To Be Normal - David Tennant's Intense Performance Will Have You Falling For Laing's Charismatic Charms

Image
The David Tennant led R.D Laing biopic, Mad To Be Normal, had its premiere screening at last night's Glasgow Film Festival Closing Gala and it's a must see for fans of David as he puts in what we consider to be one of the finest performances of his career so far.

The film, written and directed by Robert Mullan, tells the story of the radical Scottish psychologist R.D.Laing. Set in the 1960s it focuses on the five year experiment created by Laing and his unique community at Kingsley Hall in East London where patients and therapists lived together. He was often criticised for his techniques, which included the use of the drug LSD, but which also saw no treatment given at all to patients who did not want it.

Laing himself is a difficult character. You don't know whether to love him or loathe him as he goes from being a charismatic idol, adored by those who hero worshiped him and his practices, to an arrogant and insensitive, mean and ruthless man to those closest to him, inc…

David Tennant, Olivia Colman and Sarah Parish all feature and there's a look at life on set of the BAFTA winning drama.

David says:
"It's a different sort of story, there are a lot of new characters in it, so we are investigating a crime, more than we have done previously I think.
We're meeting new people, finding out about them, and investigating their lives, where as before the story has been more part of our own psychology. That gives it a different flavour but it is still the same tone."

UK & IRELAND PREMIERE: Broadchurch Series 3 Episode 1 Airs On ITV Tonight

Image
Broadchurch returns in the UK tonight at 9pm on ITV and in Ireland at 10pm on TV3

It's three years since the events of series 2 and Ellie and Hardy are called out to attend to a woman who has reported a serious sexual assault.   They take the woman – Trish Winterman - to the SARC (Sexual Assault Referral Centre) where she is examined.   There’s no doubt she’s been raped – but where, and when, and by whom?

Hardy and Ellie tell Trish that an ISVA, (Independent Sexual Violence Advisor) will be in touch soon.  This person will help and guide her through the legal and investigative process that will now unfold around her.

Working on a clue found at Trish’s house, Hardy and Ellie discover the crime scene and call in SOCO to gather evidence. But it is an unusual and difficult crime scene - will they find anything useful?

The initial forensics report confirms Hardy and Ellie’s earlier suspicions – this was not an opportunistic attack, it was planned.   Hardy concludes that they have a s…
