Daniel Stars as Doctor Again


Daniel Radcliffe, star of “A Young Doctor’s Notebook.”

Q: I read somewhere that “A Young Doctor’s Notebook,” starring Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe, has been renewed for a second season; however, I’m not sure where to find the first season. The show looks incredibly interesting, so I’d like to get caught up.

A: You’re in luck, Patrick, because Ovation has acquired the first season of “The Young Doctor’s Notebook” and will begin airing it in October. Based on Russian writer and playwright Mikhail Bulgakov’s book, “A Young Doctor’s Notebook” is a darkly humorous account of the turbulent experiences of a newly graduated doctor (Daniel Radcliffe), artfully told through the eyes of his older, opiate-addicted self (Jon Hamm). The young doctor lands a post at a small hospital in a remote village during the Russian Revolution, where the patients, staff and extreme medical maladies cause him to doubt his own competence.
