Subject: 	Dr Who Meets Shakespeare - Season 3

Shakespeare Sorted
Location and guest cast details for episode two.

David Tennant and Freema Agyeman have spent the last few days filming in 
and around London's Globe Theatre for what promises to be one of the 
most ambitious and exciting episodes to date.

Set in 1599 in Tudor London, the episode features the Doctor's first 
meeting with William Shakespeare as he foils a plot to destroy the 
Earth. The Globe Theatre provided a stunning backdrop for much of the 
action whilst the Doctor Who special effects team are recreating the 
look and feel of London's streets from 400 years ago.

Dean Lennox Kelly, best known for his recent role in the BBC One drama 
Sorted and as Kev in Shameless, guest stars as William Shakespeare.

"The Shakespeare episode is, without doubt, one of our most ambitious 
projects to date," enthused Russell T Davies. "It's incredible to have a 
working replica of London's most famous theatre in which to film the new 
series. Viewers can look forward to Shakespeare giving the performance 
of his life in order to save the Earth from destruction."
