Sky Arts has released the first promotional photo from A Young Doctor’s Notebook which stars Harry Potter‘s Dan Radcliffe and Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm.
The photo depicts a portrait of Radcliffe with a stethoscope around his neck and a look of some serious attitude. He plays the younger version of Hamm’s character who has “bleakly comic exchanges” with his young self. According to a previous report, the miniseries is inspired by a collection of short stories by Russian writer and playwright Mikhail Bulgakov set during the Russian Revolution.
Back in May when Hamm and Radcliffe signed their deals, the latter actor seemed very enthusiastic about the project. “I have been an obsessive Bulgakov reader for a couple of years now so when the opportunity to become involved in this project came up, I could barely contain my excitement. The book is funny, grotesque and heartfelt in equal measure and I look forward to working with a great group of people to help bring it to life.”
Hamm added he had “great enthusiasm for bringing something original, dark, funny and moving to light.”
A Young Doctor’s Notebook premieres December 6 in the United Kingdom. Thanks to Snitch Seeker for the photo.
