Dr Who wins again

David Tennant tops theatregoers' popularity poll

Dr Who aka David Tennant has scored a big hit, his return to the stage in the guise of Hamlet being named by drama fans as the event of the year.
Voting for the Theatregoers' Choice Awards was enthusiastic, with 35,000 people taking part. Actor Kenneth Branagh was also very popular, being chosen best actor for Ivanov.
Comedian Eddie Izzard was chosen best solo performer for Stripped.
Best actress in a play was Katy Stephens (The Histories), while Josh Hartnett (Rain Man) was the London newcomer of the year.
Tennant was forced to miss much of the Royal Shakespeare Company season because of back problems, but returned to the stage after surgery.
