Act 1, Scene 15 – “Special guest prince of Denmark.”

hamlock-page-001Notes on Elementary, My Dear Horatio

Benedict Cumberbatch prepares to play Hamlet on the London stage this week, but he’s also here as Zounds, Alack, and By My Troth’s special guest prince of Denmark to answer the burning question – what happened next?

Putting a caricature of a real person into Zounds was a fun challenge, and I do love that he towers over Horatio (always take the precaution of a good coat and a short friend). As for my other guest stars, I fear the chap on the left is mostly recognisable by his costume, but his friend just naturally seemed to lend himself to being turned into a cartoon character…

Oh, and for a bonus pop culture mash-up, yes, the poison used was definitely iocane powder…
