Andrew Scott’s Hamlet is to be screened by the BBC in 2018

Currently playing at the Harold Pinter theatre in London’s glittering West End is a modern day on Hamlet, that features Sherlock star Andrew Scott in the lead role. The production has earned hugely positive reviews (that’s some understatement, in fact), and the run is set to come to a close on September 2nd.

However, that won’t be the end for it. For it’s been revealed that BBC Two has inked a deal that’ll allow it to broadcast this particular take on Hamlet in 2018. The production is directed by Robert Icke, and co-stars Juliet Stevenson and Jessica Brown-Findlay. It’s unclear which performance is being filmed for later transmission, but’s very good news that it’s being made available for wider consumption.

When we have a transmission date, we’ll let you know.
