Trivia

Louis Scatcherd, Sir Roger's son, is referred to as "Sir Louis" when he arrives to see his ailing father. Since he has not yet inherited the Baronetcy from his father, he would only be "Sir Louis" under 3 possibilities; 1) Louis has, somehow, been knighted on his own. 2) Sir Roger Scatcherd was able to claim the ancient right of a Baronet to have his son knighted at the age of 21. Although such claims were being ended during the reign of George IV (1820 to 1830), perhaps Sir Roger got a special privilege as part of his Baronetcy.

3) It was a goof. See more »

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.
