Hidden in the tone of my question is a clue as to my view on the subject.
Dr Wyatt is the stern, no-nonsense, old-fashioned head of the Hospital Asylum.
Played by David Bamber
He’s under increasing pressure to have results at the asylum – to find some cures for the lunatics.
But none are presenting themselves and Wyatt is growing weary of William trying to get the patients to ‘express themselves’ by taking them painting in the park or putting on a production of The Knights of the Round Table.
Dr Wyatt would much rather patients were given a cold bath or a session in ‘the rotating chair’.
