Who is Doctor Thorne? This question is asked by many in the recently released trailer for Julian Fellowes‘ new series, airing on ITV in the U.K. and Amazon Prime in the U.S.
Thorne (Tom Hollander) himself provides some insight in the below clip, saying, “I have not made my mark in public life. I have built no railway. I have neither fortune nor title. But I have some skill in saving lives.”
