He’s not quite post-Who as yet – there’s more than likely a lot of publicity to come in the backend of 2010 – but David Tennant is certainly moving in with his career. Although he is doing it by popping back to Hamlet.
It seems that recording of the recent RSC production is underway, something that will likely utilise either an already built set for another production of the play or a stripped down set with the focus on the actors performance.
David Tennant, Patrick Stewart and almost all of the original principal cast are involved at the semi-secret location which is being recorded for posterity and will more than likely quickly appear in the classrooms of GCSE pupils across the country within the next few years as a means of bypassing the stuffy costumes and ornate language of Shakespeare and showing the Bard’s work as performed by one of the most famous actors in the country.
It’s a genius idea – one that is likely to result in one of the highest selling educational DVDs of all time.
