This production is part of a famous series produced by BBC of all of William Shakespeare's plays. The resulting films, renowned for their loyalty to the text, utilized the best theatrical and television directors and brought highly praised performances from leading contemporary actors.. In this richly-costumed production, the greatest tragedy ever written maintains all the tension of a murder mystery as it examines the fundamental issues of justice, guilt and death. The director's innovative film technique creates an intimate performance that succeeds extremely well on small as well as large screens.. Hamlet, the most complex of all Shakespeare's characters, is considered the greatest challenge for an actor. Sir Derek Jacobi is a superb choice in the rigorous tradition of Shakespearian acting. Sir Patrick Stewart (X-Men, Star Trek) co-stars as Claudius.
