The Indian Doctor tells the story of Delhi graduate Dr. Prem Sharma (Sanjeev Bhaskar The Kumars at No. 42) who arrives in the UK in 1963 as part of the first wave of Indian doctors wooed by then health minister Enoch Powell. Prem and his dignified wife, Kamini, want to build a new life for themselves following a family tragedy but rather than finding a glamorous job as a high-flying consultant in London, Prem finds himself in the Welsh coal mining village of Trefelin, where apart from the culture shock, he quickly starts to realise that things are not quite as they should be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctors in Wales--and Cornwall April 7, 2012
Verified Purchase
Doctors- we have all seen one at one time or another and so we believe we know how a doctor looks; how a doctor acts. There is something about the new guy in town that puts peoples' backs up-until the new guy has to save the day. The point of view is that of the observer, seldom of the new guy. It takes some skill to get the observers-in this case the viewers-into the mind set of the new guy-and the communiity in which s/he is found. Put a South Asian in South Wales and it is going to take awhile to get it-but get it one does and it is wonderful. Doc Martin moved to Cornwall and we all got used to it. The Indian Doctor is as good and the magnificent Welsh scenery is better-and more realistic. (The sun never once stopped shining in COrnwall in the DOc Martin series-at least there is a cloud or two coming in over the soon to be disused coal mines.) It is period-1963-and engrossing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little gem, highly recommended March 1, 2012
This programme was original shown during the afternoon by the BBC in the UK, but has subsequently be shown several more times during more "peak" viewing times, this was due to the great acclaim it received from critics and public alike. If you like British drama I would advise you to give this a try, I'm sure you will not regret it as it blends a good storyline with great acting and high production values. It accurately portrays the Welsh valleys of the time, (early 1960's), with both serious and comedic elements, very highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delighful May 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this very much, especially (I have to admit) the beautiful clothes the beautiful doctor's wife wears. The doctor comes across as a really caring, sensitive man. His wife's reactions to her new country are funny, and the scenes where she protects the local "bad" kid and tries to help him, totally won me over to her corner. If there is a second season, I will buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Series May 28, 2012
If you like British dramas such as Ballykissangel or Monarch of the Glen,hen you will enjoy this program. It is not Doc Martin but it is a warm show that makes you feel good after watching it. The series takes place in Wales during the early 1960s. The culture clash between the the sophisticated Indian doctor (and his wife) and the villagers with their xenophobic tendencies makes for interesting viewing. The acting and production values are very good. I am eagerly awiting the release of season 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful series October 31, 2012
By Puck
Verified Purchase
Surprising little series with wonderful acting and a story line that goes in unexpected directions. This is not just a "fish out of water" story and well worth the purchase. Just wish the DVD version had subtitles to help with some of the heavier accents.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating portrayal of Immigrant saga July 1, 2013
By Sujatha
The drama series is a fascinating portrayal of immigrant Non Resident Indian (NRI) saga that we have all heard of and have different perceptions of.

The story is set in the sixties in a small Welsh town where the life revolves around the local Coal mine. The Indian doctor, Sanjeev Bhaskar, and his wife migrate to Wales, with the first wave of Indian doctors "imported" by NHS.

Dr. Sharma promptly tries to integrate into the village by socializing with the locals at the pub and flirting with the ladies while Ayesha Dharker plays his wife, an uppity Indian character who just doesn't want to settle in a "village" The story also portrays the migrant saga, the travails of landing in a foreign land, having to prove oneself. And the delicate balance of trying to blend in while maintaining one's roots.

A charming first series has a mix of everything, some comedy, a bit of drama, a "villain" and the many shades of local gray.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Doctor has arrived! August 23, 2014
Verified Purchase
Another Doc Martin, this time with race/culture causing the issues of Preem and his wife fully being accepted in a small Post-war Welsh village. Amazing to watch the characters develop and change as they learn more about the Doctor. Drama, Humor, and Warmth mixed with some comedy. A must buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic series. I was curious about this series September 22, 2014
By British
Verified Purchase
Fantastic series.
I was curious about this series. I read the reviews from other people and I decided to take a chance. I am so glad that I did. My husband and I were drawn into the story immediately. The characters are multi-faceted-just as real people are. The characters are shown with their good traits and bad traits. The story is interesting and we found ourselves watching episodes back to back. My only criticism is that the series only had 5 episodes. We were left wanting more! I hope that I inspire others to give this series a try. Between the interesting story and the excellent acting, I believe it is worth the time and money the viewer invests in it.
Enjoy!
