5.0 out of 5 stars A dark and surreal Russian medical comedy ..., 31 Dec 2012
This review is from: A Young Doctor's Notebook [DVD] (DVD)
This has to be one of the best UK television productions I've seen in a long time. In equal measures serious, dark, humorous, chaotic and surreal. The story begins with a doctor reading through a notebook he wrote when, as a young doctor, he was sent from Moscow to run a hospital just to the left of the middle of nowhere. The two doctor's interact with each other in the earlier time - the older one trying to advise his younger self, and avoid the mistakes he has already made.

The source material for this is 'A Country Doctor's Notebook' by Mikhail Bulgakov, so if you enjoy Russian literature or just love a well made and acted TV show then this is a must see, especially if you enjoyed the 'Chekhov: Comedy Shorts' release a couple of years ago.
