Amazon is buying the streaming rights to British period drama Doctor Thorne

Amazon is acquiring the streaming rights to Doctor Thorne, a period drama adapted by the creator of Downton Abbey that premiered in the UK earlier this year. Julian Fellowes scripted the three-part miniseries, based on Anthony Trollope’s 1858 novel of the same name, as his first major project after Downton Abbey’s run ended last year. – Jamieson Cox, The Verge
