Summary[]

William Shakespeare has sprained his wrist while writing sonnets, but the Fourth Doctor, who has paid him a visit, gives him some help in drafting Hamlet. However, the phrase "take arms against a sea of troubles" ends up remaining in the play at Shakespeare's insistence, despite the Doctor claiming that it is a mixed metaphor.
