Tennant Keen to Get Back on Stage

The Royal Shakespeare Company are hoping to welcome David Tennant back to the stage at the Novello Theatre in London as soon as possible before the Hamlet ends on January 10th 2009 – and its hardly surprising as the star of Doctor Who has been out of action since December 8th.

Tennant himself seems optimistic, and told BBC 5 Live that his fellow cast and understudy are up to the task of carrying on without him – which is a reasonable point as he’s of to film Doctor Who once he hangs up his skull.

“It’s supposed to be a six-week recovery period but I seem to be doing quite well so we’ll keep monitoring it.”

“If I could be on stage, I would be so I’m very sorry if that’s disappointed people. But we’ve got great understudies with Ed Bennett, whose playing Hamlet, and all the other guys who are understudying.”

Let’s hope that Tennant does make it back on stage in time to make at least one last performance as Hamlet. I think you’ll agree though that it will be great – if a little sad – to have David back on the Doctor Who set for his final run of episodes from January…
