I am off to Japan tomorrow to stay with my sister for a couple of weeks - some would say the worst timing as I will miss all the exciting Hamlet news but I hope to be on here a little bit just to see how everyone has got on.

Aww phantom, big hugs to you from me, I am a bit worried about you now!!  When I have felt at my lowest I have (possibly ridiculously) thought about what Benedict would do.  I'm sure he would tell you not to put yourself in a difficult position in order to get tickets to see him. 

The Barbican is massive - over 1,000 seats and I am confident everyone who wants a ticket will get one - maybe not their first choice of date or best choice of seat but we will all get to see him.

Please do not worry yourself about what might go wrong (although I appreciate I'm the one that started the 'what if he's ill thing!).  Rebecca is right - I don't think he would have signed up to do it if he didn't think he could take it.  There is a long way to go before the actual event and I'd hate to think you were worrying for all that time.

If you were in the UK I'd say make a cup of tea and everything will seem better - is there an equivalent in Denmark?! (And I'm not belittling how you feel, I honestly believe a cup of tea does make you feel better!!)

More hugs and I hope you are feeling better today xx

Yes, I am sure he will do all he can to stay healthy - I think he knows how dedicated his fans are and being the lovely chap he is be the would feel awful if he thought he'd let us down

Yes, I read that as long as you can be flexible on dates then everyone should get tickets who want them.  I am just praying he doesn't get poorly - my sister missed out on seeing him in Frankenstein at the NT as he was poorly boy.  Hopefully lots of healthy living will mean he can survive what is bound to be a gruelling run.

I watched this for the first time a couple of weeks back on Clare's recommendation and it was everything I hoped it would be.  It's interesting to read the comments here and see what inspiration different people gained from it, and it's a useful reminder to me of my own inspirations and thoughts. 

In a way I am lucky - I was young when my grandparents died (suddenly and without great pain), so I do not know what it's like to watch a loved one suffer.  I found myself wondering how I would cope in this situation, either as James or one of his friends.  What would I do a friend finds themselves in James's position? Would I be able to step up and put their wishes before my own.  A film of true loving friendship, which makes me forever grateful for the friends I have in my life

Not nuts, just dedicated  .  (Oh maybe, a little bit nuts but I blame Benedict for making us all a wee but crazy!!)

Noooo, they couldn't get rid of Mrs H - she looks after the boys to let them do their funky stuff!!

Thanks for the heads up.  I haven't really been a fan of setting Shakespeare in the modern day but yes, sounds interesting.

Must book me some tickets!!

I know, I feel really lucky that I have this not far from me and I don't want to miss out but as you choose seats when you book would be good to see if anyone else wants to come too.  Just hope I don't leave it too long.....

Looks like there are tickets at the Maidenhead Odeon for both Benedict as the creature and as Frankenstein.  One on 30th October and one on 6th November.

I'm happy to get tickets if anyone wants to come with me???  (But please let me know as soon as possible as don't want to miss out!!)

Has a UK release date been confirmed?

This just adds fuel to the 'you get what you pay for' and until the shoppers stop buying cheap (and I totally understand about financial pressures!) the manufacturers and suppliers won't do anything about it.  Disappointed in the Co-operative who I always thought were ethical providers.

Also concerned about feeding fish (trash) to fish.

Cause for thought and I wonder whether it would have reached such a wide audience if Benedict hadn't lent his voice...

You have to love his narrations! Like my aunt said, he is very good at pronounciations 

 
You know, he really is.  I've listened to so many audio things recently, (or did I mention I saw him at Hay?!?) I notice my pronunciation has improved too.  I'm suddenly so very British!!
