3 January 2017

It has been announced that Julian Fellows, the award-winning creator of ITV's Downton Abbey, is to adapt Anthony Trollope's Doctor Thorne for television.

The three-part drama will begin filming later this year.

Doctor Thorne by Anthony Trollope
Son of a bankrupt landowner, Frank Gresham is intent on marrying his beloved Mary Thorne, despite her illegitimacy and apparent poverty. Frank's ambitious mother and haughty aunt are set against the match, however, and push him to save the family's mortgaged estate by making a good marriage to a wealthy heiress. Only Mary's loving uncle, Dr Thorne, knows the secret of her birth and the fortune she is to inherit that will make her socially acceptable in the eyes of Frank's family - but the high-principled doctor believes she should be accepted on her own terms.
