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.
