Celebrating Shakespeare's 450th Birthday: David Tennant Explores Hamlet Merchandise

In celebration of the 450th anniversary of William Shakespeare's birth today we'll be taking a look back at some of David Tennant's finest Shakespeare-inspired moments.

In 2012, David took part in a six-part documentary series in which notable Shakespearean actors and directors explored the stories behind some of the Bard's greatest plays. David's documentary on Hamlet looked at why the play is regarded as perhaps the greatest of Shakespeare's works.

On a visit to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, David looked at some of the merchandise that the play has inspired.
