Injury Forces Tennant Out Of Hamlet

DOCTOR WHO star DAVID TENNANT has been forced to pull out of a scheduled performance of HAMLET due to an ongoing back injury.
The 37-year-old is currently starring in the Shakespearean play alongside former Star Trek actor Patrick Stewart.
But Tennant had to scrap his Monday (07Dec08) night performance at London's Novello Theatre because of his back problems.
The sold-out show recently transferred from Stratford-Upon-Avon, England to the British capital, and production company officials hope that Tennant will be back on his feet ahead of a planned performance in front of London's fiercest theatre critics on Tuesday (09Dec08) night.
A spokesperson for the Royal Shakespeare Company says, "We're waiting to hear whether he'll be able to perform."
