Dan was a guest voice actor on last night’s episode of Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken, providing the voice for Kool-Aid kid and Thomas the Tank Engine. As of yet, the episode is not officially available for viewing online, though it hopefully should be added to the Adult Swim website at some point in the next few weeks. Those of you with US cable packages may be able to access the episode through Adult Swim’s Gold Episodes section.

UPDATE: Check out Dan’s naughty bits here on YouTube, courtesy of ArthurKipps.  Rated MA for (im)mature language!

Images and synopsis for the first episode of A Young Doctor’s Notebook

With less than three weeks to go until the first episode of A Young Doctor’s Notebook premieres, Sky Arts are beginning to release photos and additional trailers for the series.

In the first episode of the four-part comedy drama A Young Doctor’s Notebook, we encounter the doctor (Jon Hamm) recollecting his younger days when, at the fragile age of 25, he was hurled pitilessly into the icy depths of rural Russia. With his old notebook acting as his memory-catalyst, the now-experienced doctor travels back in time to the eve of the 1917 Russian revolution, but perhaps he is not entirely prepared for what he will find.

As he looks back and revisits himself in embarrassment, awe and a hint of nostalgia, his inner conflicts are unravelled, brutally and comically, whilst he battles to rediscover his past, and his happiness.

Meanwhile, Jon Hamm’s younger self is played by an outstandingly witty Daniel Radcliffe, who arrives at the Muryovo village soon after graduating – top-class, as it must be noted – looking like the inexperienced, scrawny boy he was. Beardless and almost pathetic, he finds himself in the midst of panic, having to cope with the grotesque conditions of an antiquated, regressive Russia, back then a stranger to electricity and such modern luxuries as fashioned by Western Europe.

“[Your walk] It lacks authority, like your voice”

His first test is a woman suffering from the extreme pains of giving birth, but this may have been one medical lesson that the doctor wasn’t particularly attentive to. Shocked and terrified to his very core, he dashes to his library, frantically searching for an answer but only to be faced with a very angry, older version of himself, namely Jon Hamm, who pushes him to act like a man.

Brusquely humorous and delightfully exuberant, the series inauguration is bound to compel you and leave you wanting more.

A Young Doctor’s Notebook premieres Thursday 6th December, 9pm, on Sky Arts 1, with the UK DVD release scheduled for Monday 31st December.
