Psychos is a six-part British television drama series, first broadcast on 6 May 1999, that aired on Channel 4. The series focuses upon a manic-depressive psychiatrist, Dr. Daniel Nash, and the hospital in Glasgow where he works. The series was written by David Wolstencroft and directed by John McKay and Andy Wilson. Douglas Henshall starred as Dr. Daniel Nash, with Neve McIntosh, Alastair Mackenzie and Indira Varma also appearing in lead roles.[1] The series was nominated for the BAFTA Television Award for Best Drama Series,[2] and it's writer, Wolstencroft, won the RTS best newcomer award for off-screen talent.[3]

However, the series was heavily criticised by Ofcom, who upheld 28 complaints made by viewers, and stated that following an investigation, the series "reinforced stereotypes and prejudice towards people involved in mental health". Ofcom also ruled that "a sexual relationship between a doctor and a patient was trivialised and gave the wrong signal about the seriousness of such a breach of trust".[4] In light of the investigation, a planned second series was cancelled and the series was not released on home video.[citation needed] The complete series has since been available to view on All4,[5] but has yet to be released on DVD.
