The Shakespeare Code: Discuss

Since Sci Fi is airing The Shakespeare Code for American audiences tonight, I thought it might be fun to have a discussion about the episode.

So to kick off the discussion, I'm posing the following question: In the episode, Shakespeare said to the Doctor "And I'll discover more about you and why this constant performance of yours." To which the Doctor replies "All the world's a stage."

What do you think this says about the Doctor in this episode and his treatment of Martha, and has that changed at all post S3?

Thank you to longtimegone for the question.

PS- Those of you who are new to S3 might want to take a look at the original airing reaction post for the episode here at lifeonmartha.
