Ouch, ouchie ouch.
David has a slipped disc and has to undergo surgery tomorrow. :( Which, to be honest, I'd been suspecting all along. Back trouble of that calibre is bound to be something about the discs.
This also means he won't be able to return to the stage before Christmas, and we'll be getting to see Edward Bennett instead (which I really don't think is a bad thing!) And yet I can't begin to imagine how Edward must feel - involutarily hugging the limelight when the main act is probably suffering the pain of his life. Not a nice thing. :(
And David is likely to go postal in his recuperation phase, with nothing much to do, methinks.
I'm really anxious now, a) for David's health, and b) for how Saturday's performance will come out...
I guess if Ed Bennett steps in, it'll be interesting (having seen David's Hamlet already, even more so), but I so wanted winonah to see DT...
Like quite a number of people have said, being the workaholic that he is, he must be in some serious pain to let go of two performances, press night even.
*pets DT's back*
If you could choose any actor to guest star on the show as a villain, who would you choose?
Oh there’s so many, the mind races! Am I allowed to say David Tennant?
Woooooot! Wouldn't that be amazing? Evil!Ten, perhaps? ^^
Oh no, Russell's turned me into a fan!
Go read that interview it's really cute in its entirety.

Nothing to add, Your Honour. XD
I've spent the entire day up till now reading posts, cleaning up the flat (finally), and making a tinned beef and bean sprout salad - yummy (IMO the only way to use tinned beef at all):
2 packets of soy sprouts
1 red pepper
1 Spanish onion
1 big pickle
1 clove of garlic
300g/1 tin of beef
4 tablespoons of ketchup
1 teaspoon of sugar
Chop up the red pepper, onion, pickle and meat, mix with sprouts. Make a hot dressing of the ketchup, squished garlic, tabasco, lemon juice, sugar and spices. Sprinkle with lots of parsley - done. :)
Had a "mock the stupid moment" at the supermarket's cashier when I bought the stuff yesterday. Cashier guy takes the parsley, leans over to his coworker: "Hey, those are chives, aren't they?" o______________0
And to top this all, here's a picture from the Hamlet programme of which I actually have the VERY blasphemous opinion that Patrick Stewart looks a lot hotter than David Tennant. XD
