DOC­TOR THORNE

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WATCH ON PRESTO - WITH COLIN VICK­ERY

8.30PM, ABC

Down­ton Abbey cre­ator Ju­lian Fel­lowes has a hard act to fol­low. The de­ci­sion to adapt An­thony Trol­lope’s his­tor­i­cal novel Doc­tor Thorne feels like coast­ing. We’re back in the 1850s in fic­tional Barset­shire for an­other cos­tume drama of love, pet­ti­coats and so­cial class. Tom Hollander (The Night Man­ager) is fine as the ti­tle char­ac­ter, but Ian McShane (Dead­wood) is the stand­out as drunk­ard Roger Scatcherd.
