Sunday night was the first episode and my only complaint was that it was on later than I wished. See where the English went to escape the heat and sun of The Indian Summers. The accents make it a tad challenging to understand but Downton Abbey is in its last season, so this is a great addition! If you like history, great writing and acting, breathtaking scenery , filmed at the foot of the Himalayas and tucked into the tea plantations, intrigue , complicated love stories. . . .take a look. I love history, BBC miniseries with stellar writing and acting, handsome Indians, beautiful Indian women . . . . .and of course Incredible India!
Set against the sweeping grandeur of the Himalayas and tea plantations of Northern India, the drama tells the rich and explosive story of the decline of the British Empire and the birth of modern India, from both sides of the experience. But at the heart of the story lie the implications and ramifications of the tangled web of passions, rivalries and clashes that define the lives of those brought together in this summer which will change everything. It’s the summer of 1932. India dreams of Independence, but the British are clinging to power. In the foothills of the Himalayas stands Simla; a little England where every summer the British power-brokers of this nation are posted to govern during the summer months.Written by Channel4
