The Shakespeare Code

The Witches : Eye of newt, and toe of frog,Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,Lizard's leg, and howlet's wing,-- For a charm of powerful trouble,Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

The Doctor : All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts.

Martha: I like this place and willingly could waste my time in it.

Shakespeare: Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The Doctor: Wherever the bright sun of heaven shall shine, his honour and greatness of his name shall be.

Shakespeare: Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight! For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night.

Martha: Words, words, mere words, no matter from the heart.

Lilith: What is decreed must be.

Wiggins: The stroke of death is as a lover's pinch, Which hurts and is desired.

Lilith: Hell is empty and all the devils are here!

The Doctor: To sleep, perchance to dream...

Martha: Love sought is good, but given unsought, is better.

16 The Doctor: What's in a name? That which we call a Rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

Peter Streete: My cue is villanous melancholy, with a sigh like Tom o' Bedlam.

Lilith: Why then tonight let us assay our plot.                                                                         

Shakespeare: Oh, I am fortune's fool!

The Carrionites: When shall we three meet again in thunder, lightning, or in rain? When the hurlyburly 's done,When the battle 's lost and won.

The Doctor: Though this be madness, yet there is method in 't.

Shakespeare: By the pricking of my thumbs,Something wicked this way comes.

By the pricking of my thumbs,Something wicked this way comes.

Martha: Now is the winter of our discontent.

31Lilith: To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,To the last syllable of recorded time.

The Crowd: O villain, villain, smiling, damned villain!

The Doctor: Out, damned spot! out, I say!

Lilith: Cry 'Havoc', and let slip the dogs of war!

The Doctor: Thus the whirligig of time brings in his revenges.

Shakespeare: What a piece of work is man! how noble in reason! how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals.

The Carrionites: That it should come to this!

Lilith: A plague o' both your houses!

Martha: Now go we in content to liberty, and not to banishment.

Shakespeare: Good Night, Good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow.


The Queen: Off With His Head!

The Doctor: We are such stuff as dreams are made on...

Short version: I loved it.


See the guy playing Peter Streete, that's the same actor who plays Super Hans in Peep Show isn't it? Great start to the 4th series of that last night.
