The Indian Doctor - Series Two

Inspired by real events, The Indian Doctor is the award-winning BBC One drama that is a warm and humorous fish out of water story of a high flying doctor who moves to the UK with ambitions to work in a top London surgery, only to find himself in a small Welsh village.

The second series picks up Prem and Kamini's story nine months after the end of the first, in the early summer of 1964. With Beatlemania now an international phenomenon and British pop music storming the US charts, the 60s have really started to London. But in the South Wales valleys, life for most people carries on as usual.

Settled in their new home, the doctor and his wife are waiting anxiously for the arrival of his mother-in-law from India, who upon arriving is not impressed by their surroundings. The village also becomes home to an evangelist minister, whose campaign against the evils of the permissive society are somewhat overridden by the activities of his beautiful and spoilt daughter. However the doctor's greatest challenge comes when the village finds itself in the grips of a deadly disease, and it's a race against the clock to discover the source of the outbreak and vaccinate the villagers against infection before it's too late.
