Disappointed...
25 September 2017 | by drsdvSee all my reviews

I love period dramas/movies. So I was incredibly happy when I saw Doctor Thorne. I was pretty set on watching it but read the reviews anyway and almost all except one of them were saying it was good.

The things that come to my mind right away are:

  • Some scenes almost look like cgi, like they were filmed in front of a green screen. I know nothing about cinematography so I don't know what the problem was but it just felt off.


  • Almost every actress had very visible lipstick and mascara on (some even false lashes), they just looked very made-up and that takes away from the historical feel of the show.


  • Over-acting, the actress playing Marry Thorne was the most faulty of it but honestly the only one that felt natural for me was Tom Hallender. Whenever Marry Thorne came on it just took me out of the show even more if that is even possible because everything feels so inauthentic.


  • Dialogue is just bad.


  • No 18th century atmosphere, just actors with 18th century clothing.


Overall this feels like a parody. I could only endure for the first episode.
