The play’s the thing as three Carrionite crones, dependent on the power of words, bewitch Shakespeare (Dean Lennox Kelly) into writing Love’s Labour’s Won. Martha gets the hots for the Doctor and is revealed as the Dark Lady of the Bard’s sonnets, in a sparkling script from Gareth Roberts, played out at London’s Globe Theatre.
