“I knew at once I wanted to do it.”
Doctor Thorne is Julian Fellowes’ first screen project since Downton Abbey said its UK farewell last Christmas Day.
A deliciously comedic world adapted from the Anthony Trollope novel.
Starring Tom Hollander in the title role with a superb cast including Rebecca Front, Ian McShane, Phoebe Nicholls, Richard McCabe and Alison Brie.
With newcomers Stefanie Martini (Mary) and Harry Richardson (Frank) making a big impression at the start of what are set to be notable acting careers.
Starting on ITV at 9pm this Sunday (March 6) Doctor Thorne is a glorious three part treat.
Filmed in some of the most striking locations England has to offer.
