Dr Who wins Shakespeare Award

What? What, what? Gor Blimey, but Dr Who has saved the World again.

David Tennant's depiction of Hamlet has earned him a best Shakespearean performance trophy at the Critics' Circle Theatre Awards.

And that was despite injuring his back. He took up the role at Stratford-on-Avon but missed most of the London shows due to the problem.

He shares the award with Derek Jacobi as Malvolio in Twelfth Night.

Critics said it was a particularly strong year for Shakespearean performances. Well, the Force was with them.
