Doctor Who star David Tennant is "gutted" he has been forced to pull out of another scheduled performance of Hamlet due to an ongoing back injury.
The 37-year-old had to scrap his Monday (08Dec08) night performance of the Shakespeare play at London's Novello Theatre.
And the star was once again absent for Tuesday's (09Dec08) performance, which was also press night where he was due to face London's fiercest theatre critics.
But Tennant is desperately trying to shake off the injury, and hopes to be back on stage soon.
The play's director, Gregory Doran, says, "David is gutted, not only at the thought of disappointing audiences, but also to be unable to perform a role that he has worked on and developed throughout 60 performances in Stratford-upon-Avon.
"Before this injury, he has only ever been off for one performance in his entire career to date, and is hoping that he will be able to return to the show as quickly as possible."
The sold-out production, which also stars Patrick Stewart, is due to end its run on 10 January (09).
