It is the Bard himself. Stewart gave a master class in being still while all around him ranted. Richard McCabe played a roistering Ben Jonson.

My turn I think.

A scale model of which famous unbuilt monument is currently in the courtyard of the Royal Academy?

Oooh, I'm sure said model/monument featured in an EQC 'indie' question in Oslo (2008).

As this thread seems to have died, here's another question:-

Which novel tells the story of William and Paul Morel and their relationship with their mother Gertrude?

But, in what body of water is it standing?

Although I didn't notice the question until just now, I was jogging past this within a few minutes of the time you posted it! It's in the Water of Leith (in Edinburgh).
