First Trailer For ‘A Young Doctor’s Notebook’ Starring Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe

Did you know that Daniel Radcliffe eventually grows up to be Jon Hamm? At least that’s the suggestion in the new British miniseries ‘A Young Doctor’s Notebook,’ which follows a youthful physician during pre-revolutionary Russia while his older, post-World War II self watches, often interacting with his past self. Naturally, Radcliffe plays the character when young and Hamm plays the middle aged edition. The first trailer for the series can be watched below.

‘A Young Doctor’s Notebook’ is based on a semi-autobiographical short story collection by Mikhail Bulgakov called ‘A Country Doctor’s Notebook,’ which is described as follows:

“With the ink still wet on his diploma, the twenty-five-year-old Dr. Mikhail Bulgakov was flung into the depths of rural Russia which, in 1916-17, was still largely unaffected by such novelties as the motor car, the telephone or electric light. How his alter-ego copes (or fails to cope) with the new and often appalling responsibilities of a lone doctor in a vast country practice — on the eve of Revolution — is described in Bulgakov’s delightful blend of candid realism and imaginative exuberance.”

Although it will premiere overseas first, interested North American viewers should keep their eyes open for this one. A few years ago, this series may have never been shown in the United States, but the recent international success of many BBC productions like ‘Dr. Who’ and ‘Sherlock’ have opened the doors to a television version of the British Invasion. Although ‘A Young Doctor’s Notebook’ will premiere on Sky in England, BBC has the worldwide distribution rights, so look to BBC America in the coming months! After all, why wouldn’t they bring a show starring Harry Potter and Don Draper to the United States?
