First screened, Saturday, 7th April, 2007
on BBC One

Three witches try and mess up William Shakespeare's mind and work. The witches turn out to be Carrionites, but they haven't reckoned with the difficulty of taking on the Doctor and arguably the world's greatest ever wordsmith.

Set in an amazing recreation of the Globe Theatre, this is a wittily scripted episode by Gareth Roberts, especially when the Bard takes a shine to Martha.
