From Hamlet to Who

As David Tennant finishes off his RSC stint and relaxes for a few days before being thrust headlong back into the crazy world of Doctor Who he’ll be taking a rarely-plotted course – switching from Hamlet to Doctor Who.

However someone who has worked with him closely over the past few months reckons he could plot the same course.

It is none other than Edward Bennett, David Tennant’s Hamlet understudy who stepped into the breach while the Hamlet star recuperated from a vital operation on his back.  When asked if he would like to play the Doctor, he gave a superb response that possibly raises a few lids…

“Who wouldn’t? A million pounds a year and as much sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll as you could want!

“But I don’t think that’s going to happen any time soon because they keep getting younger and younger. This guy is 26. And I’m 29. So I’m probably past it now.”

“I would perhaps be the kind of doctor who forgot the keys to the Tardis.”

£1 million eh?  That can’t be right.  Expect denials. 

The sex, drugs and rock’n’roll is a given, of course…
