I already knew that David Tennant had convinced producers of Doctor Who to take a year off so that he could do this, but I hadn't heard about Professor X Patrick Stewart co-starring. Can one stage hold that much sci-fi mojo?! Linkify! (

    The Royal Shakespeare Company usually draws genteel, theater-loving crowds to the serene town of Stratford, the playwright's birthplace. It has never seen anything like the fan frenzy surrounding a new production of "Hamlet" that stars not one but two science fiction icons: David Tennant, hero of the British Broadcasting Corp.'s beloved "Doctor Who," and Patrick Stewart of "Star Trek: The Next Generation."

    Tickets for the sold-out run are trading on the Internet for hundreds of dollars, screaming fans have thronged the stage door after each preview and management has banned autograph-hunters from bringing TV-themed merchandise to the theater.

    All this before critics were to even pass judgment Tuesday night at the show's opening...

One of the Thirty-two (or maybe Thirty-four....)!

I'm going to see the production at the end of the month. I am so excited. Plus, the day after I see it, I've also got tickets to a Q&A session with Tennant and Stewart.

I read that all the Who fangirls have been mobbing Tennant at the stage door and leaving Stewart more or less alone. That makes me a little sad.

Well the first reviews are in from most of the major UK papers - round-up here ( and all of them seem to be fairly favourable so far. But while the general consensus is that Tennant is pretty good in the lead role, Stewart is the one getting rave reviews for his performance as Claudius.

The frustrating thing is, this show's best original material is having non-pov characters interacting to flesh them out more than any book reader ever could have imagined. I wish the show would give us more time at Pyke to let us care about the place.
