Season 2

Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) return for Season Two of A Young Doctor's Notebook, the critically-acclaimed black comedy series based on the memoirs of a young doctor's life in a remote village in early 20th century Russia.

Season 2 picks up in 1935 with the older doctor returning to his former infirmary to collect the pieces of his shattered life.

Reliving his battle with morphine addiction, and his doomed romantic choices, Hamm's character watches his younger self struggle to survive against the backdrop of the Bolshevik Revolution.

Under the critical gaze of his "clean" older self, the Young Doctor struggles to cope with life in the hospital, the Civil War and the arrival of Natasha, a beautiful young aristocrat.

Based on a collection of short stories by celebrated Russian playwright Mikhail Bulgakov.
