Good Karma Hospital


Tuesdays at 9:30pm from February 27 Channel 007

Set in a coastal town in tropical South India, The Good Karma Hospital  tells the story of junior doctor, Ruby Walker, who arrives in India looking for a job and a distraction from heartbreak. She anticipates the sunshine, the palm trees and picture-perfect beaches. She’s even prepared for the sacred cows, the tuk-tuks and the Dehli-belly that everyone warned her about. What she doesn’t expect are the realities of work, life and even love at an under-resourced and over-worked cottage hospital.

Run by a gloriously eccentric Englishwomen – Doctor Lydia Fonseca (Amanda Redman) – the Good Karma Hospital is the beating heart of the local community. Held together by a hand-picked team of British and Indian medics, the Good Karma turns no-one away – locals, ex-pats and tourists are all welcomed through its doors.

Life affirming and optimistic, this contemporary series mixes the heart-breaking with the humorous, and as Doctor Ruby Walker adjusts to life in India, she realises that the Good Karma Hospital is more than just a rundown medical outpost – it’s a home.

Starring: Amrita Acharia (Game of Thrones), Amanda Redman (New Tricks, Sexy Beast, At Home with the Braithwaites), James Floyd (My Brother the Devil, Everywhere and Nowhere)
