Trivia

William Shakespeare, then played by Hugh Walters, had previously appeared in the first part of the six part serial 'Doctor Who: The Chase' (_"Doctor Who" (1963) {The Executioners (#2.30)_). See more »

Goofs

Because of poor lighting, among other things, in Shakespeare's day plays were performed during the day. That was why theaters like The Globe had no roofs, so that the sun could light up the stage. It wasn't until much later that performances became a night-time affair. See more »

Quotes

Martha Jones: [referring to the Globe theatre] It's like your police box; small wooden box, with all that power inside!
The Doctor: Oh, Martha Jones, I like you.

the shakesphere code
8 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

hey, i thought the episode was really good. funny. upbeat and generally very well acted. the witches were very well costumed. visual effect were very well done. we can still see that the doctor is still in love with rose as he still thinks about her and her name keeps him going. shake-sphere is played by dean Lennox Kelly Also known as Kev from shameless. very very good indeed. David Tennant still puts a lot of energy into the work and plays hes character brilliantly . Freema is doing very well as a person shes settled in extremely well and has been welcomed into the family of doctor who!
