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.

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.
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.
