'DOCTOR THORNE' PERIOD SET
DRAMA STARTS THIS SUNDAY!
If you can't hardly wait for the second season of POLDARK to start at BBC this spring, here's something you can pass your time with: ITV will launch their new Julian Fellowes three part historical series DOCTOR THORNE this Sunday evening based on Anthony Throllope novel! 

IAN MCSHANE, TOM HOLLA- NDER LEAD THE CAST

Tom Hollander (Rev, A Poet In New York, Pirates of the Caribbean) takes the role of Dr Thomas Thorne, who lives in the village of Greshamsbury in Barsetshire with his young niece, Mary (Stefanie Martini), a girl blessed with every gift except money. Mary Thorne has grown up alongside the Gresham family, whose house, Greshamsbury Park, and status dominate the county. With Francis Gresham Senior (Richard McCabe) having frittered away the family fortune, however, his wife, Lady Arabella Gresham, played by Rebecca Front (War and Peace, Humans, Lewis, The Thick of It), their daughters Augusta (Gwyneth Keyworth) and Beatrice (Nell Barlow), and their handsome brother Frank (Harry Richardson) face losing their home. Ian McShane also stars.

  5. I read the book The Terror, which, while not my favorite book of his, could make a fun series, especially if Ridley Scott is involved.

  6. Doctor Thorne might be good, although the story a bit typical for it's type. I don't know anything about The Terror and would follow your advice on that one.

    We has just gotten back from my mother in laws house darling. She is so sad and so lonely but we do know in time she will pull out of it. The Hubby and his sister are leaving Friday to spend three days with her.

    1. Yep, Throllope is the most typical of all the mediocre Victorian writers, no wonder Fellowes lurvs him dearly :)

      It will take lots of time for mother in law to recover. Could she spent a few weeks with you and hubs and then a few weeks with his sister, not to be alone?

    2. She's at that age where she wouldn't leave her own home. She would see herself as being a burden. My Aunt Bridey wouldn't do it after her husband passed either.

    3. I know, but sometimes they must, and if she sees it as a possibility to help her kids by cooking sometimes for them in their homes or taking care of the kids or the house, she might accept it... that is if she wouldn't disturb your own privacy :) In my country our grannies and granpas almost always live with us like in Asia. It's a part of our culture and they usually help a lot because they take care of their grandkids, cook meals etc so the parents can work or do other things.
      As long as she has friends there and neighbours I guess she will be fine in her own house too?

  7. The Terror sounds gripping. I hate open water for the creatures lurking around. This would give me nightmares, I bet.

  10. The terror sounds like it could be catchy.

    P.s. I finally watched Snow White and the Horseman Last night. WhIle my Hemsworth was sexy as ever, I was a bit disappointed. I hope the sequel is much better!
