This review is from: A Young Doctor's Notebook [DVD] (DVD)
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.
