Tennant’s and Stewart’s Hamlet to air this month

Are you a scifi+ Shakespeare dork?

I just found out that the stage version of Hamlet starring David Tennant and Patrick Stewart has been made into a film, and it will air on BBC 2 on December 26th. The BBC has the info (look to the right, fourth panel down). I hope they come out with it on BBC America, or Blu-ray! I wish I could’ve seen the stage version (oh, outrageous fortune! – but we all suffer slings and arrows sometimes) but this’ll do in its stead.

Still, I’ll always like the Harold Hecuba interpretation the best.

Tip o’ Yorick’s skull to John Ellis.
