Mr Cumberbatch gives a reminder that he is a top-rank stage actor
As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to revenge his father’s death but paralysed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state.
He is a blazing five star Hamlet. The wait has not been in vain. Praise be.
