Tennant and Colman support selfie mental health campaign | DisabledGo News and Blog


Broadchurch stars David Tennant and Olivia Colman have posted selfies of themselves to show their support for a BBC mental health initiative. Tom Hardy and Russell Brand have also pulled their fingers out – four to be precise – for the #1in4 campaign.

They include Mind Over Marathon, a documentary featuring the Duke of Cambridge that will air later on BBC One.   To
