- You may be looking for Hamlet Macbeth.
Macbeth was a play, as well as the name of the titular regicidal thane, created by William Shakespeare.
While it was an established fact that Shakespeare had embellished history for the sake of drama, much of the play appeared to be accurate. The play, was in essence, the retelling of an adventure of the Second Doctor, where he and his companions, Jamie McCrimmon and Zoe Heriot, accidentally became embroiled in the events of the play, taking on the roles of the witches, the murderers and Lady Macbeth's physician. At the end of this draft, the Doctor would make sure Shakespeare wrote the play correctly upon their next meeting. However, the play was later edited, possibly by Thomas Middleton, presumably for plausibility. (PROSE: The True Tragedy of Macbeth)
In 1609, Macbeth was performed before King James I at Hampton Court Palace. The First Doctor and Vicki forced themselves on the stage, where they took on the roles of the Doctor and the Gentlewoman while confronting Shakespeare, who was playing Lady Macbeth. (PROSE: The Empire of Glass) The Fourth Doctor told Sarah Jane Smith that he played the part of the Doctor when the play opened at the Globe Theatre. (PROSE: Managra)
Robert Dodds believed his role as Banquo in the play to be his greatest triumph; most thought he was a poor actor. He was killed by Pamela whilst reciting his lines from the play. Two plaques with speeches from the play adorned Dodds' home, Banquo Manor. (PROSE: The Banquo Legacy)
The Twelfth Doctor quoted the play by telling Clara Oswald and Jagganth Daiki-Nagata: "To die, to die. Glamis hath murdered sleep, therefore Cawdor shall sleep no more. Macbeth shall sleep no more." (TV: Sleep No More)
