Doctor Thorne

Season 1 (2016)

Tom Hollander stars in the title role of this three-part ITV adaptation of Anthony Trollope's novel. Set in the village of Greshambury in Barsetshire, the programme follows the life of Dr Thomas Thorne (Hollander) as he raises his illegitimate, young niece Mary (Stefanie Martini). Having spent much of her youth growing up around the wealthy Gresham family, Mary falls in love with Frank Gresham (Harry Richardson) but his mother Lady Arabella (Rebecca Front) strongly objects to the pair's union. With their fortune being jeopardised by the actions of her husband Frank Sr. (Richard McCabe), Lady Arabella believes it is her son's duty to marry a rich heiress to preserve their noble status and views American Miss Dunstable (Alison Brie) as a perfect candidate.
