Reviews

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe and Mad Men’s Jon Hamm are to star in a comedy drama about the Russian revolution on Sky Arts. The pair will play the same doctor at different stages of his life in the four-part series, A Young Doctor’s Notebook, by Russian writer and playwright Mikhail Bulgakov. Hamm will play the older man, who has a series of “bleakly comic” exchanges with his younger self, played by Radcliffe. Based on a collection of short stories, ‘A Country Doctor's Notebook’, by Russian writer and playwright Mikhail Bulgakov. draws heavily from the author’s own experiences as a medical graduate on the eve of the Russian Revolution, Bulgakov describes a young doctor’s turbulent and often brutal introduction to his practice in the backward village of Muryovo. Using a sharply realistic and humorous style, Bulgakov reveals his doubts about his own competence and the immense burden of responsibility, as he deals with a superstitious and poorly educated people struggling to enter the modern age.

What a gem this programme is. Dark, funny, and brilliantly acted. Daniel Radcliffe has really come a long way since Harry Potter; he throws off the Boy Wizard image fully in this 4-part series, which sees him smoking and taking drugs, amongst other activities Hogwarts definitely wouldn't allow. And credit where it's due- his acting is fantastic in this.

The entire main cast work brilliantly together to create highly watchable episodes, which range from the hilarious, to the disgusting, to the heartbreaking.

Die-hard fans of Mikhail Bulgakov will no doubt find many faults in this for not accurately portraying the book, but if you're looking for a dark comedy with plenty of gore, this is the show for you.

What a treat ! Having read the book just before the series came out I was very anxious to see how well it had been adapted to the screen. I must say this series had exceeded my expectations. There's a perfect balance of British humour and Russian comedy that is perfectly in keeping with Bulgakov's style and universe. It is fast-paced and highly intertaining, while retaining a certain theatricality that really pays tribute to the book. Highly recommended !

Format: DVD
A set of dark short stories set in middle-of-nowhere Russia, where a newly trained doctor tries to live up to the reputation of his predecessor - the great Leopold Leopoldovich - whilst battling a morphine addiction. Not only is it dark, but it's really funny! The script, the way it's shot, and the acting make it a delight to watch. I was curious about Daniel Radcliffe's reputed acting talents too (not particularly evident in the Harry Potter films, or Woman in Black), but he played his role brilliantly here.

There seemed to be a lack marketing for this program - the only reason I knew it existed was an advert of 4OD. It's a shame too, as I think there will be a lot of people missing out on an excellent series. Highly recommended.

Format: DVD
I admit it. I ended up with this DVD by accident, thinking it was a film rather than a four-part television adaptation, and didn't realise that it was based on Mikhail Bulgakov's writing. So what a pleasant surprise! This is a comedy drama about a newly-qualified Russian doctor practicing in a rural community. Much as it is set in 1917, the Russian Revolution itself plays little part in the proceedings. Instead we see the doctor's bumbling first few months through to the beginnings of his slide into drug addiction. The first episode in particular contains fantastic comedy acting from Daniel Radcliffe, showing a completely different side to Harry Potter, and the plot darkens as the episodes progress. It won't suit everybody, but I really enjoyed this, despite not getting what I expected!

John Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe are both excellent in this. This is a tour through human emotions. Its horrible, sarcastic, sad, repelling and hysterically funny. You are constantly torn between laughing out loud and wanting to leave the room. Emotive stuff.

Very good and really quite amusing! Proving there is a life available to Daniel Radcliffe beyond Hogwarts, he plays the young doctor in question with convincing fear and trepidation (and great humour, of the Russian variety, naturally). The performances from the rest of the cast are equally as good in their own roles, giving balance to the whole affair. It's a fine romp , one I hope is maintained throughout the series. In fact , I'm minded to read the book ... if there's a good translation.
