Don’t miss The Good Karma Hospital, 9pm on Sunday evenings on ITV1, with Sagar Radia as series regular AJ Nair.
Set in a coastal town in tropical South India, the series tells the story of British-Asian junior doctor, Ruby Walker, played by Amrita Acharia, who arrives at the run-down Good Karma Hospital to join a dedicated team of over-worked medics. Run by a gloriously eccentric Englishwoman, Lydia Fonseca, played by Amanda Redman, this under-funded but creatively resourceful cottage hospital is the beating heart of the local community. It’s much more than just a medical outpost – it’s a home.
The drama is created and written by Dan Sefton (The Five, Mr Selfridge, Death in Paradise), with scripts also from Vinay Patel and Nancy Harris. The series is produced by Stephen Smallwood (Ripper Street), and the first episodes are directed by Bill Eagles (Gotham).Overview
