Downloading now!! Can't wait. I love Patrick Stewart and I specialized in Shakespeare when I started my English degree. So this will be an all around treat. I read some spectacular reviews on Tennant too.
When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman
I downloaded this on my iPod and love it! The better bonus is that I'm revising my senior curriculum a bit this year and I'm adding Hamlet to ease the transition into a full year course the following year. Gee, which version to show after we read: Branagh or Tennant? Hmmmmm....DAVID TENNANT hands down! Plus, I get to introduce my students to DT. I can't tell you how giddy this makes me.

I have this taped off PBS from earlier this spring and have been watching it on and off. Enjoying every moment, but I have to make sure I can concentrate on it due to the language. I can usually understand, but I can't be only half-paying attention!

It is not enough to take steps which may some day lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
To climb steep hills requires a slow pace at first. William Shakespeare
You have to watch this!! It is so good! Plus, David is as good looking as ever Aside from that, the expressions and actions make it very easy to understand. I enjoy Shakespeare, but boy do I wish this was the version we watched while I was in high school.
It is great. And, for people that have trouble following Shakespeare (like the friend I watched it with), the words were even on the bottom of the screen so you could read the lines when you don't catch what's said.

Last night I got to watch Hamlet with David Tennant as Hamlet and Patrick Stewart as the Ghost and King Claudius.
I've been a Shakespeare fan for most of my life. I've seen a number of performances and renditions of Hamlet. But with David as Hamlet.....OH MY GOD!!!! He brought so much to the character that I've never seen there before! Hamlet it usually protrayed as a meloncholy, depressed guy that mopes around. David, however, brings layers of full, delightful madness! It was a true delight to watch. I strongly recommend watching it if you get a chance.
