Video: "Hamlet," 2010, Trailer

Excerpt from the review of Hamlet, Courtyard, Stratford-upon-Avon, by Michael Billington, the Guardian.com, Thursday, August, 7, 2008:

This is a Hamlet of quicksilver intelligence, mimetic vigour and wild humour: one of the funniest I've ever seen. He parodies everyone he talks to, from the prattling Polonius to the verbally ornate Osric. After the play scene, he careers around the court sporting a crown at a tipsy angle. Yet, under the mad capriciousness, Tennant implies a filial rage and impetuous danger: the first half ends with Tennant poised with a dagger over the praying Claudius, crying: "And now I'll do it." Newcomers to the play might well believe he will.
