    "Sir Johnstone Forbes Robertson" in text and tags should read Sir Johnston Forbes-Robertson.

    "Hamlet looks shocked" - actually at this point in the play Hamlet is unaware of the ghost's appearances. The two men nearest the ghost are instead Horatio and Marcellus, with, behind them, the guard Barnardo.

    Barnardo is played by Richard Andean.

    Marcellus is played by Robert Atkins.

    Horatio is played by S A Cookson.
