I was in England for the Christmas/New Year holidays and saw the 
Tennant/Stewart Hamlet as broadcast by BBC. I agree with Hardy, except 
that I think that some very bad directorial or dramaturgical choices 
were made about some of the cuts and a decision to reorder and telescope 
events from IV.iv to the end. For example, they couldn't seem to make up 
their minds about what to do with Fortinbras, leaving that part of the 
play at loose ends.

The acting, however, is superb, especially Sir Patrick's (to anticipate 
only a little) very low key and regal Claudius. I would also single out 
the Player King for special mention -- his expression during Hamlet's 
lecture is priceless.

Hello All:

In regard to this, I believe the DVD version of the Tennant/Stewart 
Hamlet just recently went on sale via the RSC website.

Got a link? I can't find it on the BBC search. Perhaps Ms. Gough knows 
about a coming DVD. Eh? Ms. T?

David Tennant's 'Hamlet', re-staged and re-directed by Gregory Doran for 
BBC television, was released on DVD in the UK on 4 January. It is 
available, region 2 only, in the UK from www.amazon.co.uk and other 
major retailers. It comes with an audio commentary and 35 minutes of
