The Indian Doctor
Season 1
The sleepy Welsh coal mining village of Trefelin is in for a shock. When the local doctor dies, his replacement isn’t quite what people expect. Prem Sharma is the new doctor who arrives from India. It’s not just the locals who are shocked: Prem and his beautiful upper-class wife Kamini were lured from their homeland by the promise of opportunities and a glamorous lifestyle in London. What they get is nothing like it. Set in the early 1960s, this lighthearted, award-winning comedy drama follows the Sharmas as they struggle to cope with the culture shock of being educated foreigners in a small working class village.
