Shakespeare Solved ®


Shakespeare Solved ® is a forthcoming series of novels that covers the Bard's entire life and work.

These novels solve the mysteries surrounding Shakespeare by transporting us back in time, to walk in his shoes, and see his world through his eyes.

Only when we see Shakespeare in his original historical context can we understand what his plays and poems really mean.

This blog explains some of my ideas and discoveries, to prepare for this series of novels.

Muse Of Fire Shakespeare Documentary


I just watched the Shakespeare documentary Muse of Fire, and it’s great.

I highly recommend it!




The documentary is now on Apple iTunes, and here is a link to their website for more information:


Two young actors, Dan Poole and Giles Terera,  had the idea to interview famous actresses and actors who are famous for their love of Shakespeare.


Giles Terera and Dan Poole

There are too many names to list, but there is Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law, Ewan MacGregor, Tom Hiddleston and many many more. There is even an interview with Romeo and Juliet director Baz Luhrmann.

Judi Dench

It’s a fun and funny documentary, and these two actors are very entertaining guides as they journey around England, to Denmark’s Elsinore Castle, and across the USA, in their quest to explore the meaning and importance of Shakespeare in the world today.


with Ian McKellen

There are lots of surprises, and it’s the twists and turns in their journey that often can be the most entertaining moments of all.


Tom Hiddleston

My only complaint is that I wanted the documentary to be much much longer, and the interviews to be more in depth. As for me, I could just sit and listen to Judi Dench and Ian McKellen talk about Shakespeare for hours.

But not to worry, they have just posted many of the full interviews online for free! Here:


I do hope they add more as soon as possible, especially Tom Hiddleston, Dominic Dromgoole, and Mark Rylance.

Do yourself a favour and watch this exciting documentary. It’s worth every penny.

Cheers,
