Tennant Hamlet - Words by AtomicFireball Tennant Hamlet - Words by AtomicFireball
I drew my favorite moment from David Tennant's Hamlet, because I have a bad cold and art is all that keeps me sane.

(There's a bit of a Whovian bonus if you look close).

Heh. You know that if you search "Hamlet" in the dA search box, this comes up right next to a picture of Hamlet being played by none other than Christopher Eccleston?

But yeah, awesome drawing, awesomely well done, love the pose, love the face, love the colors, love the Whovian bonus, love love love. Good Doctor, best Hamlet.

(but then that book just went and gave me John Smith feels whyyyyyyyy)

this bit and the bit when he jumps over the railing had me in stitches! And then they wheeled him in, tied to a chair and I giggled hysterically because all I could think was "END OF TIME REFERENCE!" :D

I have to read Hamlet for book club/school. Thanks to Tennant, Hamlet now may or may not surpass Beyond Birthday in the epic revenge obsessed psychopath (well, sort of) list. The book has certainly earned it's place next to Tamora Pierce and Another Note on my bookshelf (yes, I sort my books by epicness)

Favorite part of the play! (and is the Whovian bonus what's written on the page? Is it supposed to be the journal from Human Nature?)

A few weeks ago I was watching idly staring at the television while my dad set up to record an episode of something or other so we didn't have to be awake at eleven to watch it. Then something came on. This was what hapened.
Me: (thinking) Hey cool, an episode of Doctor Who! I didn't know they still played those on the channels we get! Hang on, he's talking funny... that sounds oddly.. familiar... Hamlet? Why would the doctor be quoting Hamlet...
Dad: (speaking) Hey cool, Hamlet with David Tennant!
me: (speaking) Oh...

On the other hand, I'm proud of having recognised it as Hamlet, as it was a scene that I did not consciously remember at all.

May or may not have laughed and cried at the same time when I finally saw this moment. The order of roles I've seen him in goes 10th Doctor > Brendan (Secret Smile) > Hamlet, and I'm on my way to watching Blackpool.

It's like emotional response displacement. The Doctor was a lonely goofball and Brendan was a creeper of epic proportions. I don't know what to think anymore.

...Other than he's one talented bastard.

I'm keeping Secret Smile for last. The come-in-your-mouth clip I saw made me do a D: face for hours. I was like OH DOCTOR WHO NOOOO

Tennant is pretty damned good in Blackpool. If you like choreographed dance numbers and singing in your detective mysteries, that is, AND I THINK THAT YOU WILL.

Oh I've seen clips of blackpool. Just the one of him singing a country song into an ice cream cone is almost enough to make me forgive him for Secret Smile.

I wish I'd had your wisdom to watch it last. I couldn't watch Doctor Who right for days without thinking 'No, Rose, it's a lie! Run while you can!'

If it's any consolation, by the time you get around to Secret Smile, the remake of Fright Night with him in it will probably be finishing up production.

So there'll be an extra role to help wash the taste of Brendan out of your mouth XD

Just watched it and I'm rather thrilled at his portrayal of Hamlet. Leave it to Tennant to take the most emo prince of all time and throw in some of his trademark face-humor while still managing the most sincere and raw emotion the character's had in decades.

Also this picture is AWESOMESAUCE. Adorable and fabulous all at once. :3
