As you have probably already heard, David Tennant was forced to pull out of Hamlet due to a back injury a few days ago. However, now he sadly has to have surgery for a prolapsed disc. He said, "It is hugely disappointing for me to have to miss these performances. My back problem has progressed to the point where it is currently impossible for me to carry on without surgery. I want to get back on stage as quickly as possible and I am very grateful to Ed who has courageously got to grips with the role but in a much shorter time. It's a fantastic achievement."
The-OncomingStorm would like to wish David Tennant a successful operation and speedy recovery!
