Meanwhile, the doctor has an emergency of his own to deal with when he is asked to make an unusual house call.
THE INDIAN DOCTOR is a comedy drama set in the 1960s, when a South Wales coal mining community is changed forever following the death of the local doctor, whose replacement comes as quite a shock to the villagers. High-flying Delhi graduate Dr. Prem Sharma (Sanjeev Bhaskar -The Kumars at No. 42; Paddington 2) and his wife, Kamini (Ayesha Dharker - Indian Summers, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones), eschew a glamorous lifestyle in London for the sleepy Welsh village of Trefelin. Once in Wales, they quickly become embroiled in the lives of the villagers, although the regal Kamini is determined they are leaving as soon as possible. It won't be smooth sailing as Prem quickly starts to realize that things are not quite as they should be. Featuring appearances by Mark Williams (Father Brown), Mali Harries (Hinterland), and Mark Heap (The Trouble witt Maggie Cole).
