David Tennant is one of the few British actors chosen to be part of a set of stamps featuring six of William Shakespeare's plays.

The collection is being released by the Royal Mail to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Ten images complete the set, selected from 50 years of Shakespeare performances of plays including Romeo and Juliet and The Tempest

The former Doctor Who star's stamp features an image from his portrayal of Hamlet during his stint in the 2008 production.

Other actors to be featured in the set include Sir Ian Mckellen, Dame Judi Dench and Sir Patrick Stewart.
