Good Angel. O Faustus, lay that damnèd book asideAnd gaze not on it lest it tempt thy soulAnd heap God’s heavy wrath upon thy head!Read, read the Scriptures—that is blasphemy!Bad Angel. Go forward Faustus, in that famous artWherein all nature’s treasure is contained.Be thou on earth as Jove is in the sky,Lord and commander of these elements!

The Good Angel and Bad Angel represent characters in this play as they symbolize the divided will of Faustus’s conscience. In these lines at the beginning of the play, the Good Angel and Bad Angel go back and forth, each providing counterarguments and contradicting directives to Faustus. The Good Angel tries to convince Faustus to avoid the devil’s book and read only Scripture, while the Bad Angel provides reasons why moving toward evil will benefit Faustus.

Bad Angel. Go forward, Faustus, in that famous art.Good Angel. Sweet Faustus, leave that execrable art.Faustus. Contrition, prayer, repentance, what of these?Good Angel. O, they are means to bring thee unto heaven.Bad Angel. Rather illusions, fruits of lunacy;That make men foolish that do use them most.

The Good Angel and Bad Angel’s back-and-forth dialogue continues as they represent Faustus’s thinking as he contemplates sin versus redemption. In these lines, the Good Angel connects with Medieval thought as he encourages Faustus to repent and go back to God. Meanwhile, the Bad Angel represents the Renaissance individual as he tells Faustus that prayer is just an illusion so he should move forward toward Lucifer.

Good Angel. Faustus, repent: yet God will pity thee!Bad Angel. Thou art a spirit: God cannot pity thee!Faustus. Who buzzeth in mine ears I am a spirit?Be I a devil, yet God may pity me—Yea, God will pity me if I repent.Bad Angel. Ay, but Faustus never shall repent.

Here, the Good Angel and the Bad Angel go back and forth with Faustus once again. However, these lines end with the Bad Angel declaring that Faustus will not repent. Since the Good Angel and Bad Angel represent Faustus’s thinking, this line confirms that evil is winning the battle for Faustus’s soul. Soon after these lines are spoken, Faustus admits that he cannot repent, proving the Bad Angel’s prediction or perhaps merely following the Bad Angel’s suggestion.

Good Angel. O Faustus, if thou hadst given ear to meInnumerable joys had followèd thee.But thou did’st love the world.Bad Angel. Gave ear to me,And now must taste hell’s pains perpetually.Good Angel. O, what will all thy riches, pleasures, pompsAvail thee now?Bad Angel. Nothing but vex thee more,To want in hell, that had on earth such store.

In the final act of the play, the Good Angel and Bad Angel represent and give voice to Faustus’s regret and second-guessing as he approaches his final damnation in Hell. While the Good Angel reminds Faustus of the joys he lost by giving up god, both the Good Angel and the Bad Angel question Faustus on how the riches, fame, and power will help him now. The angels basically present Faustus with his moral lesson.

Good Angel. . . . And now, poor soul, must thy good angel leave thee,The jaws of hell are open to receive thee.Bad Angel. Now Faustus, let thine eyes with horror stareInto that vast perpetual torture-house . . .Nay, thou must feel them, taste the smart of all:He that loves pleasure must for pleasure fall.And so I leave thee Faustus, till anon:Then wilt thou tumble in confusion.

As the play concludes, the Good Angel’s and Bad Angel’s back-and-forth ends as the Good Angel concedes the loss of Faustus’s soul. In these lines, the Bad Angel also tells Faustus that he must prepare for hell by looking at the tortured, fallen souls before him. In the end and despite the Good Angel’s best efforts, the Bad Angel wins Faustus’s soul, symbolizing how Faustus finally accepts his dark fate.

A Young Doctor's Notebook is a British dark comedy television programme based on the short story collection of the same name by Mikhail Bulgakov. Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe portray the show's main characters (a doctor at the fictional Muryevo Hospital in Russia at different ages). The first series was broadcast between 6 December and 27 December 2012 on Sky Arts 1, and a second (and final) series aired from 21 November to 12 December 2013. The first series takes place in the year 1917 during the Russian Revolution, and the second series takes place in the following year during the Russian Civil War.


Mikhail Bulgakov (pictured in the 1910s) wrote the short story collection A Young Doctor's Notebook, drawing upon his own experiences as a newly graduated doctor in 1916–1918, practicing in a small village hospital in Smolensk Governorate and his addiction to morphine and subsequent rehabilitation.

The second series is based on the short story titled 'Morphine' by Bulgakov. The title cards and credits use faux Cyrillic. The music for the programme was composed by Stephen Warbeck. It features violin, a clarinet, acoustic guitar, and cello. The theme song was featured on Sky Arts' compilation album Sky Theme Tunes, Vol. 2.[1]

Series overview[edit]

Dr. Vladimir Bomgard leads a team at the fictional Muryevo Hospital in Russia. The team consists of Pelageya Ivanovna (Rosie Cavaliero), a junior midwife; Demyan Lukich (Adam Godley), a feldsher; and Anna Nikolayevna (Vicki Pepperdine), a senior midwife. The typical episode follows the team in their attempts to treat patients' illnesses. Bomgard contends with the uneducated populace, which refuses his treatment. He regularly provides them with rapid and accurate diagnoses.

Bomgard has a physical relationship with Pelageya. In the third episode, they have sex for the first time. In the second series, they try being a couple, and make their relationship work. In the sixth episode, Bomgard tells Pelageya he never loved her, and they separate.

A Young Doctor's Notebook is set in the fictional town of Muryevo, Korobovo in Russia. The first series takes place in the year 1917 during the Russian Revolution, and the second series takes place in the following year during the Russian Civil War. The programme also takes place in the years 1934 and 1935. The show's main character reads his old diary and recalls his experiences, interjecting himself into the story of his younger self. The doctor interacts with his younger self, having conversations that reveal aspects of the story yet to unfold.

In the second series, the Russian Civil War begins to affect the fictional Muryevo Hospital, as an influx of wounded soldiers from both the Bolsheviks and the White Guard arrive for treatment. Meanwhile, the young doctor is battling an all-encompassing morphine addiction. His older self stands watch over him, and a young aristocrat named Natasha arrives in the hospital. The young doctor takes an intense, destructive interest in Natasha. At the same time, The Feldsher takes a romantic interest in a tall, moustached Colonel of the White Guard, who is also staying in the hospital. They are both fond of each other, and share a love for pickled sprats. At one point, The Feldsher is seen bringing him a bouquet of flowers. The Colonel reciprocates.

A significant plot element is Bomgard's use of morphine to manage pain, caused by living in a remote and isolated community and abdominal pain. When he has no access to morphine, he occasionally self-medicates with cocaine. Bomgard also frequently chain smokes when he is on medical duty. In the first series finale, the young doctor reacts to mercy killing by taking morphine, and his addiction recurs. At the close of the first series finale, the young doctor begins to hallucinate. His addiction leads to conflicts with Pelageya. In the last episode, the young doctor admits he is addicted to morphine, describing himself as a 'hopeless addict'. In the first series, the older doctor is under investigation for writing false prescriptions for morphine for himself, before he attempts suicide via overdose, and is subsequently incarcerated as a result. At the opening of the second series premier, the older and rehabilitated Doctor Bomgard is released from a mental institution, with his addiction under control.

The young doctor is constantly reminded of the former doctor Leopold Leopoldovitch's austere presence through comments comparing them by the midwives, and the several large, foreboding portraits of Leopold sporting a huge beard on the walls of the medical practice. The young doctor often feels insecure and inadequate when faced with Leopoldovitch's reputation and skills, which grows into resentful annoyance.


Jon Hamm (left) and Daniel Radcliffe (right) portray the show's main character, Dr. Vladmir 'Nika' Bomgard, at different ages

All five of the main actors appeared in every episode. All five play staff who work at the fictional Muryevo Hospital in Russia. Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe received star billing.

  • Jon Hamm as the older Dr. Vladmir 'Nika' Bomgard. The older doctor fails to prevent his younger self from making the mistakes he currently regrets.
  • Daniel Radcliffe as the young Dr. Vladmir 'Nika' Bomgard. A graduate at the top of his class at the Moscow State University of Medicine and Dentistry, he arrives, idealistic, and with no practical experience. In the face of ignorant patients, an endless workload of hopeless cases, little support, a personal illness, and extreme isolation, the young doctor quickly degrades into apathy and despair. The young doctor struggles all the while, gradually descending from chain smoking into morphine addiction.
  • Rosie Cavaliero as Pelageya Ivanovna, a junior midwife. She is brusquely kind.
  • Adam Godley as Demyan Lukich, a feldsher. Trained as a field doctor, he practices as the doctor's assistant during operations. He smokes a tobacco pipe, and is fond of pickled sprats and atlases. The young doctor views Lukich as socially inappropriate and annoying, though well-intentioned.
  • Vicki Pepperdine as Anna Nikolayevna, a senior midwife. She is very stern, and treats the doctor as a child because of his age and inexperience. She has a loving devotion to Leopold Leopoldovitch, the much-admired, much-accomplished previous doctor, and often compares Bomgard to him or cites his many accomplishments.

In 1935, an upbeat, rehabilitated older doctor is discharged from the Moscow institution he was sent to at the end of series one. He returns to his memories of 1918 through his journal, no longer sneering towards his younger self, who he has forgiven. The hospital staff learns that the Zemstvo is making an inspection, sending the young doctor and Pelageya into a panic over the morphine shortfall.

The young doctor tries to entice Natasha to visit his room; the older doctor looks on, wishing his younger self would tend to Pelageya, noting that his obsession with Natasha is as self-destructive as his addiction to morphine.
