Romantic TV Spotlight: Doctor Thorne


Many of you may remember my gushing and happy review of Doctor Thorne from earlier this year. When I reviewed it, I had no notion of its release here, across the pond, but was hopeful it would indeed appear at some point. Happily, that has arrived. Recently, Amazon Video released it on Amazon Prime. Needless to say, if you’re looking for a way to end your weekend, you should totally do so with Doctor Thorne.
