Six actors and directors go in search of the greatest dramatist who ever lived by attempting to uncover the stories behind, and the wonders within some of his greatest plays.

Final: 1x06 -- Hamlet (Jul/17/2012)

David Tennant, whose own RSC performance was a huge hit, meets other actors who have played the legendary role - from David Warner in the 1960s to the recent Jude Law.
