Oh, wow. I just reserved front row seats to see Hamlet in October.


And bugger if I wasn't meant to show lazenich this yesterday. I'll post it here even though everyone on LJ and their brother has seen it already:

Neil Gaiman writes a (perfect) Doctor Who / Hamlet crossover:

I know that David Tennant's Hamlet isn't till July. And lots of people are going to be doing Dr Who in Hamlet jokes, so this is just me getting it out of the way early, to avoid the rush...

"To be, or not to be, that is the question. Weeelll.... More of A question really. Not THE question. Because, well, I mean, there are billions and billions of questions out there, and well, when I say billions, I mean, when you add in the answers, not just the questions, weeelll, you're looking at numbers that are positively astronomical and... for that matter the other question is what you lot are doing on this planet in the first place, and er, did anyone try just pushing this little red button?"

There. Thanks. Sorry about that.

He should write an episode of Doctor Who. He's certainly got the Tenth Doctor voice down. I love him so much, I'll even forgive the use of 'Dr Who'.

Edit: Ha ha, the tag he used for that is 'Dr Whomlet'.

OH SOMEBODY MUST PAY THAT MAN LOTS OF MONEY TO WRITE FOR DOCTOR WHO. IT WOULD BE FABULOUS. (and I think he's said he'd consider it at some point...)

Did you know STEPHEN FRY was going to write one? But he had to pull out due to time commitments. :(

REALLY?! Wow. What a shame he couldn't...

I currently have tickets for the 12th on hold? The Monday, but I MIGHT have to change them because of Plans. I should see if they have any for the 21st ;)

I am so stoked.

Also, YES. Holy crap, he's got Ten down to a T! XD That's brilliant. I can totally hear him say that.

...do you think Gaiman will write if enough of us beg? XD

That's a pretty great imitation. I've never actually seen anyone write like that before.

Neil Gaiman is fantastic, even if he is one of the most pretentious Doctor Who fans I've ever come across (which is why the use of 'dr' bewilders me).
I would totally watch a Gaiman episode of Doctor Who, in fact, I'd probably have a fan-spaz attack and be in a coma for three days, only he's said himself that he'd try to get rid of any backstory information so I don't think he'd do it.
But I wish he would.
