Doctor Thorne (ITV 2016, Tom Hollander, Stefanie Martini)

Published

on

Period drama Doctor Thorne was set in 1855 and was based on the novel by Anthony Trollope. In the first episode, when Doctor Thorne (Tom Hollander)’s penniless niece Mary (Stefanie Martini) is excluded from the wedding preparations of her childhood playmate, she probes her uncle about the circumstances of her birth. She is devastated to learn that she is the illegitimate child of his late brother, and it seems she has neither breeding nor fortune.

This is a problem as Mary and Frank (Harry Richardson) – heir to the local Greshamsbury estate – have fallen in love. Frank is under strict instructions from his overbearing mother Lady Arabella (Rebecca Front) to save the family from financial ruin by marrying money. Lady Arabella plots to separate the two lovebirds, urging her son to woo the wealthy American heiress Miss Dunstable (Alison Brie). Doctor Thorne acts as both physician and business advisor to railway millionaire Sir Roger Scatcherd (Ian McShane), in whose hands the fate of Greshamsbury lies – but who is rapidly drinking himself into an early grave.
