Quickly announced earlier this year, we had pretty much entirely forgotten about the Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe team-up in the miniseries “A Young Doctor’s Notebook.” But not only has it already shot, it airs next month in the U.K. and fresh images have been unveiled for your eyeballs.
Based on the short stories of Mikhail Bulgakov, the dark comedy will follow Hamm as a post-WWI doctor, narrating the story and interacting with his younger self, played by Radcliffe, as it chronicles his attempts to cover up his self doubt and lack of confidence. Not much else is known about the tone of the show yet, but we’re likely to know more soon, and Hamm and Radcliffe do suggest a promising and lively pairing. And give Hamm a break if he doesn’t get the accent just right.
“I have been watching ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary‘ on infinite loop, and I think I’ve finally got this accent thing sorted,” he joked to press.
The four-part “A Young Doctor’s Notebook” will air Sky Arts 1 in the U.K. in early December. No word yet on when/if it will land stateside. [DigitalSpy]
