Macbeth!!!

Macbeth, it is probable, was the last-written of the four great tragedies, and immediately preceded Antony and Cleopatra. In that play...

(Obviously, I mean TTR/Storytime! Macbeth).

[Record needle scratch] Oh, that Macbeth.

Fortunately, I don't have to spend a lot of time explaining why it was written. That's a matter of public record.

Much more below the cut... )

Title: Story Time: Macbeth
Author: John Elliott
Characters: Izzy S, Jamie, Victoria, Zoe, Isobel Watkins, Samantha Briggs, Tegan, Turlough, the Brigadier, and numerous others.
Disclaimer: None of the characters belong to me.
Author's notes: Let me try to explain Story Time.

Story Time arose as a sort of offshoot of an offshoot of the This Time Round stories on alt.drwho.creative. It involves stories being told in a playgroup — except that this playgroup is populated by toddler versions of Doctor Who characters, including Doctors, companions and villains. Then, an adult Who character (usually the Eighth Doctor's companion Izzy, but the Simm Master, Barbara Wright, Isobel Watkins and others have all tried their hand) tells the children a story, which is unwillingly acted out by other adult Who characters.

Most of the Story Times so far have been either fairytales or Sherlock Holmes stories, but occasionally we get ambitious (or overconfident) and try for something bigger. And thus I ended up with Jamie telling the little ones the story of Macbeth.

Anyway, ( here it is. )

You can find the rest of the Story Times in the TTR archive under Look Who's Talking.
