Doctor Thorne DVD

| DVD

Holding synopsis only: Tom Hollander (Rev, A Poet In New York, Pirates of the Caribbean), stars as 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. However Francis Gresham Senior (Richard McCabe) has frittered away the family fortune and now his wife, Lady Arabella Gresham, played by Rebecca Front (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. When the terrifying Lady Arabella Gresham discovers that her darling son, Frank, has fallen in love with Dr Thorne's penniless niece, she is horrified. Her husband Gresham is only being kept afloat by very favourable loans that Dr Thorne has secured from a railway millionaire, Sir Roger Scatcherd, played by Ian McShane (Ray Donovan, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Pillars of the Earth). However, Sir Roger is drinking himself into an early grave and the family's financial future lies with his unreliable son Louis Scatcherd (Edward Franklin). Lady Arabella believes it is her son's duty to make a rich marriage to save the family estate and launches a campaign to secure her son an heiress for a bride, aided by her scheming sister in law, the very grand Countess De Courcy (Phoebe Nicholls) and her conniving niece Alexandrina De Courcy (Kate O'Flynn). Their target is wealthy American heiress Miss Martha Dunstable (Alison Brie).

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.
