Diary Extract A Prologue

The Dreaming is the sixth story in The Shakespeare Notebooks, featuring the First Doctor.

Summary Edit

One of the strangest sections of the Shakespeare Notebooks comprises a form of "dream diary", in which he apparently recorded characters, situations and images that had come to him in his sleep.

Of particular interest is the entry for 24 June 1594 - the midsummer night's dream that inspired one of his well-loved plays, which appears to have been born entirely from his imagination...

Notes Edit

  • Shakespeare sees the Sontarans as "War-Goblins", the Doctor as a "White-Haired Old Doctor", and the Rutan Host as a "Green-Eyed Monster".

Continuity Edit

  • The Sontarans perform a live reconstruction of a Rutan's death at Fang Rock, entitled The Most Glorious Defeat and Most Deserv'd Death of the Trifling Rutan Foe at Fang Rock. It was made to demonstrate the Rutans "feebleness" against "puny subspecies". (TV: Horror of Fang Rock)
