Please put me down (with a particularly large signature) in the latter
camp.  I cannot be bemused knowing how Frontline's reputation will give
credence to all this malarkey. I will not watch. The trailers on PBS are
enough to raise my ire. Shame, PBS and Frontline. For all the reasons
well-stated in this thread.

To prevent one more patina of conjecture solidifying into superglued
certainty on the edifice of the Shakespeare superstructure,  Mr Russell
Mackenzie Fehr's statement (in his constructed answer to the voices he
imagines to be asking him questions) "...the painting we have of
Marlowe...", requires an immediate and spirited application of some of
the "mustard" from "Shakespeare's motto" notified late last year by a
previous correspondent; unless, of course, by "we" he refers to some
hitherto unknown group  possessing a painting of impeccable provenance
and not the kit found on the rubbish tip at the Other Place.

Yours in post-Yuletide dyspepsia,
Graham Hall.
