Professor John Halder is a ‘good’ man. But ‘good’ men must adapt to survive. As the world faces its second world war, the intelligent and music-loving German professor finds himself pulled into a movement with unthinkable consequences.

The powerful political play, from British playwright C.P. Taylor, is directed by Dominic Cooke.  Tennant is joined in the cast by Elliot Levey (Bookish) and Sharon Small (Nightsleeper).

The play was filmed live on stage by National Theatre during its sell-out run at London’s Harold Pinter Theatre between October 2022 and January 2023.

GOOD airs on BBC Four on Sunday 21st April at 10 pm.

For a taste of what to expect, here’s the trailer from National Theatre Live.
