(Jon Hamm & Daniel Radcliffe)

Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe return to star in a second series of A Young Doctor's Notebook inspired by the works of Russian novelist Mikhail Bulgakov.

Revisiting the small village of Muryevo in 1918, we find the Young Doctor battling an all-consuming morphine addiction. Under the critical gaze of his older self, the Young Doctor struggles to cope with life in the hospital and the efforts of his medical staff, the Civil War and the distractions of a beautiful young aristocrat, Natasha.

With brilliant performances from the ensemble cast, A Young Doctor’s Notebook provides a unique and lively take on Bulgakov’s works.

A Young Doctor's Notebook can be seen on Sundays at 21h00 on BBC Entertainment channel 120 on DStv.
