Reasonable Words: David Tennant and Hamlet

It’s taken me a while to catch up with “Shakespeare Uncovered” from BBC4 and on PBS in the U.S. Just took in the Hamlet episode, presented by David Tennant, which does double duty as a fine intro for anybody learning about the play (or teaching it) but also a vivid teeing up of some of the questions this play is made up of and asks.

Tennant’s RSC performance as Hamlet was also filmed for TV, and gets under your skin; the knife-edged thriller that the director, Gregory Doran, (interviewed in the doc) intended is certainly delivered.
