A Young Doctor’s Notebook: Crash Into Me

young-doctor-s2e2-adam-godley-16x9-1Previously on A Young Doctor’s Notebook: Pelagaya’s death brought out the absolute worst in Dan, disgusting his elder self.

In 1935, the train stops and Jon informs his traveling companion that they’ve reached his stop. He apologises for all the crying, and tells the man he’s right about the opera: it’s garbage. But unfortunately BumBuddy’s totally dead, and Jon failed to notice. He’s a terrible doctor.

A Young Doctor’s Notebook: The Monster Inside

young-doctor-s2ep3-hamm-radcliffe-16x9-1Previously on A Young Doctor’s Notebook: The White Guard showed up, bringing along the lovely Natasha, whom Dan quickly falls for. Despite her noticeable lack of interest, he dumps Pel in the hopes of winning Natasha over.

On the train, Jon rustles through his buddy’s blankets while the man’s asleep, searching for the notebook. Why BumBuddy has the notebook again I have no idea. The guy wakes up and asks if Jon’s trying to feel him up. Jon denies it and says he had an idea for his opera—a new aria, he can sing it if BB likes! ‘I’d rather you touched my balls,’ the guy growls. That means ‘no,’ Jon.

A Young Doctor’s Notebook: Shoot Yourself in the Foot

young-doctor-s2e2-margaret-clunie-16x9-1Previously on A Young Doctor’s Notebook: Jon was released from the asylum/prison and tried to sell Dan on the idea of drug-free living, and Dan used up all the hospital’s morphine.

Jon’s new friend the bum in the boxcar, wakes him by throwing his notebook at his head and asking about the morphine addict. Jon starts to explain that said addict isn’t just a friend of his, and then he notices that BumBuddy is pantsless and there are now several pages missing from the notebook. Apparently BumBuddy ate some bad borscht. Lovely.

A Young Doctor’s Notebook: I Forgive You

Doctors-Notebook-S02-ep1-16x9-1Previously on A Young Doctor’s Notebook: Dan, the Young Doctor, arrived in Muryevo, a desolate outpost sandwiched somewhere between Hopeless and Misery. It didn’t take long for him to start sleeping with the only available woman and shooting up morphine, while chattering with Jon, his older self. In the 1930s, Jon nearly ODs and is committed.

I have to be honest, I’m surprised this show turned into a series. I honestly thought those four episodes that went up last year were one-offs. I mean, it’s not like both Daniel Radcliffe and Jon Hamm don’t have incredibly busy schedules. It’s nice they were able to make the time for another season of this, because I really loved the show, as gross as it could be at times. Guess they really loved it too.
