A YOUNG DOCTOR’S NOTEBOOK

A doctor (Jon Hamm) recalls his time at a small Russian village in 1917 and interacts with his younger self (Daniel Radcliffe) in this black comedy series based on short stories by Mikhail Bulgakov.

For reasons that are never explained, the young doctor (who remains unnamed) — the most promising graduate of Moscow’s top medical school — has been sent to a remote hospital “in the back of the back of beyond.” There, he encounters a skeptical staff and peasants who are convinced that everything can be healed by the right kind of drops (or maybe a gargle, in a pinch). Everywhere he turns, he is confronted with portraits of the ferociously bearded Leopold Leopoldovich, his predecessor, and he is continually reminded that he doesn’t seem up to the job by a staff who worshipped Leopoldovich.

This tale of the unsentimental education of a newly minted doctor is sort of a black comedy, but it’s also a farce, a period piece, a melancholy Russian tragedy and a meditation on despair and addiction.

This Comedy-Drama series is brilliantly directed and served by two excellent actors, the only weakness is the short duration and  number of episodes (2 seasons of 4 episodes).
