Romantic TV Spotlight: Doctor Thorne

June 5, 2016 6 Comments

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.

Since new adaptations of Jane Austen or Elizabeth Gaskell period films have disappeared for the time being, popular production companies like BBC or ITV have put a great deal of effort into making dramas set in the latter 1900’s. These cover the Second World War, and sometimes, even the ’50s and ’60s. When Julian Fellowes was recruited to adapt the Anthony Trollope novel Doctor Thorne, the period piece flew under the radar. The moment I spotted this one while “window shopping,” I knew it was worth taking a chance on. Also, knowing it was written by my favorite Downton Abbey creator added to its appeal.
