Who? Hamlet!

I've heard via Mr William Shakespeare and the Internet" that David Tennant - yes, Dr. Who himself - is going to be playing Hamlet in a new RSC production. Not only that, but Patrick Stewart is to play Claudius! Oh my. Can I haz ticketz plz??? (and a ticket to England, while you're at it...).

I can see it. Totally. That edgy, manic intensity that he brings to Dr. Who is perfect for the Prince of Denmark. So who is to be Ophelia? Katee Sakhof (ha ha)?

You can read more thoughts about this news in this Guardian blog post.

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
