Hamlet, dear, your problem is clear

So David Tennant is torturing me by making me wait a whole year for a new season of Doctor Who (though we do get a few specials during the 2009 season). Why? So he can play Hamlet with the Royal Shakespeare Company!

Phil Plait Phil Plait

Phil Plait writes Slate’s Bad Astronomy blog and is an astronomer, public speaker, science evangelizer, and author of Death From the Skies!  

Well, OK, I have to give him some slack for that.

David Tennant as Hamlet

And the thing is, the reviews look pretty good. The skinny rat from Mars can act! But we knew that.

I wish I could see it; it looks pretty interesting. But between him being Hamlet and Patrick Stewart as the ghost of his father (and Claudius as well) every scifi fan on the planet wanted tickets, and they sold out months ago. Oh well, I'll always like the Gilligan's Island version best.
