Dan,

If the ghost is Hamlet, Sr., but not the father of young Hamlet, then
the ghost can kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. It can dispose
of both Claudius and Claudius's son at the same time.

The case for an evil ghost, though not definitive, seems to me quite
strong.

"I have a lot of time for the 'entity' as spirit rather than ghost."

Enter ENTITY...

Exit ENTITY.

Hmmm. You can kind of see why WS didn't plump for that one.
