A delightful series about a doctor from India and his wife trying to adjust to life in a small Welsh coal mining village.
Decent enough but really not much more than a time-killer when you have nothing else to watch. Very shallow. Also, no subtitles so we really only got maybe 75% of what was said. That being said, we have series 2 on the way and will watch it but also notice it does not seem to have subtitles either. Bummer.
I loved season 1 and 2 of this quaint series, and am looking forward to seeing season 3 when it comes in. What a great premise, the immigrant doctor and his wife arrive in smalltown Wales to set up a surgery in 1964. Loved the accents, the acting, storyline, scenery and the quality of the video. Just outstanding in my opinion.
Great series. A doctor from India immigrates to Wales to take a position in a small Welsh coal mining town in 1963. The doctor's wife wants to move to London, but the Indian doctor is enjoying the Welsh town. It is a two sided story about culture clash. The Indian wife befriends a 12 year old boy and they get into some trouble together. The doctor has to hear about everyone's problems - physical, mental, and emotional. The previous doctor left some documentation about his concern for the health of the local miners who are dying of lung disease, but a local official is more concerned about the health of the town. Interesting series, only lasted 3 seasons.
Unfortunately series 1 disk 2 is damaged and won't read. But love the programme.
I would like to watch this show, but unfortunately the copy I checked out was damaged.
Dr. Sharma is the friendly and progressive doctor we would all like to have. In this series he has to fight prejudice, ignorance, and indifference to the danger of black-lung in a Welsh coaltown. Actually, his wife played by Ayesha Dharker really steals most of the scenes she's in. She's not convinced that Wales is really where they should be-- London is more her style. Looking forward to series 2
Absolutely charming, My late mother lived in a small village in South Wales and she had an Indian doctor, who was eventually accepted as one of the "boyos"!
Really enjoyed this drama; think it is very good for family viewing. Heart-warming stories and very good acting.
Funny, sad, and delightful entertainment about the early 1960s culture clash between the new Indian doctor and his wife in a small Welsh mining town. Beautiful scenery, great music (especially the 60s britpop music). A little too preachy and dogmatic but does not detract from the overall series. Looking forward to Series 2 & 3.
This series is fun. If you like Doc Martin you will like this.
An excellent series I'm fortunate to have come across. Lovey Welsh scenery, well done & maybe a bit too kind to 1963 attitudes. The writers put a 'sugar coating' on reality of the times. Gentle, clever, funny. The Indian actors are lovely to watch. Ready for more.
The Indian Doctor, Series 1 is a delightful BBC series that follows the life of an Indian doctor and his wife who move to Wales in 1963. The couple arrive in Trefelin, a small Welsh coal mining town, to replace the NHS doctor who has passed away. The series has an interesting storyline and contains some excellent humor as well.
An interesting clash of Indian and Welsh culture with many interesting characters.
Sort of a Brit Northern Exposure where a Dr moves into a small town and culture shock ensues, although Dr Sharma is, characterwise, the opposite of Joel. While not quite as good as Northern X, there is something VERY appealing about this series.
I fervently hope the library will purchase the rest of this series... it's a keeper!!
Really enjoyable, entertaining Movie Series. Well-written story and has a wonderful cast. Many immigrants would be able to relate, while the non-immigrants would be able to understand the new immigrants' perspective, also. Adjustments all around. This Movie has serious drama, and humorous moments of a good comedy. Very believable. I hope they are making more series. I am happy that this series had won awards. Well-deserved.
Nice series—especially because it did not fall into the pc racism talk. We are looking forward to the next season! (The Indians' accent is very cute; sounds very much like our Indian friends'!)
