The critically acclaimed limited series A Young Doctor’s Notebook and Other Stories, starring Daniel Radcliffe and Jon Hamm, returns in the coming weeks for Season 2 on Ovation. Inspired by the works of Russian novelist Mikhail Bulgakov and set in the small village of Muryevo in 1918, the Young Doctor (Radcliffe) is battling an all-consuming morphine addiction and struggles to cope with life in the hospital and the efforts of his medical staff, under the critical gaze of his older self (Hamm).
As part of the Ovation presentation at the TCA Press Tour, Daniel Radcliffe spoke via satellite from New York, where he’s starring on Broadway in the hit production of The Cripple of Inishmaan, about why this four-episode series appealed to him, how flattering it is to have Jon Hamm playing the older version of him, what it’s like to do some of the more intimate scenes with his co-star, what he enjoys about doing short-form television, and what he believes makes a good U.S. adaptation of a U.K. TV show. He also talked about whether he could ever see himself reprising the role of Harry Potter as an adult, especially after the story that J.K. Rowling just released. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
