A 4 part miniseries featuring Mad Men's Jon Hamm & Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe as an older and younger version of the same man.
At Pelegaya’s funeral, the Young Doctor delivers a self-serving eulogy in which he absolves himself of blame for her death before reading a poem which he hopes will impress Natasha, much to the disgust of his older self. Later, an explosion rocks the hospital and the Feldsher informs everyone that the Bolsheviks have returned. The Young Doctor pathetically attempts to persuade Natasha to stay. In desperation, he reveals that he lied to her and that her fiancé may not be dead after all. Later that night, the Young Doctor inadvertently tells two angry Bolsheviks that the White Guard has left and is heading for a supply train full of drugs. Joined by the Feldsher, the Young Doctor heads off through the snow to try to warn the train’s passengers, but they arrive to find it has been derailed by a massive explosion. The Young Doctor finds Natasha with a broken leg and attempts to find some basic medical supplies. Stumbling through the wreckage he discovers a large number of bottles of morphine. Natasha’s carriage is now on fire. Faced with a stark choice between escaping with the morphine or taking a risk and going back, he runs away, leaving himself to face the consequences of his cowardice.
In the first episode of the four-part comedy drama A Young Doctor’s Notebook, we encounter the doctor (Jon Hamm) recollecting his younger days when, at the fragile age of 25, he was hurled pitilessly into the icy depths of rural Russia. With his old notebook acting as his memory-catalyst, the now-experienced doctor travels back in time to the eve of the 1917 Russian revolution, but perhaps he is not entirely prepared for what he will find
