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.

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.
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.
I'm now looking forward to a decent adaptation of my favourite Bulgakov novel, The Master and Margarita - none in the pipeline yet, as far as I can see, though.
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.

Silly and boring; Radcliffe flaps about and is annoying; regret having actually paid for it. Hamm's accent is the most interesting part of the show.Published 12 months ago by JayBee
You start watching it and think "erm I'm not sure about this..." but it really is funny.
