In December of 2011 American broadcast journalist Charlie Rose interviewed Michael Boyd about his time at the RSC as director.  Rose has his own show on PBS radio America's national public radio as well as being one of the current hosts of the CBS morning show.

Charlie showed Michael three different Hamlet's playing the scene with the ghost and asked him to comment.

Here is what Michael had to say about David's Hamlet:

"But it`s lovely -- it`s lovely seeing a bit of David Tennant`s "Hamlet" again. 

CHARLIE ROSE: You liked it?
MICHAEL BOYD: Yes very much. Very -- I`ve never seen a sharper-minded Hamlet. You could almost feel his mind cutting the air as he -- as he dissected people and as he tried to cut his way towards the truth and then to action. "
