“The Indian Doctor”


We found this BBC series yesterday on Hulu and watched several episodes. It is an comedy drama set in a mining town in Wales. Dr. Swarma and his sophisticated lady wife arrive in this little town to replace the former doctor and provide NHS ( National Health Care in Britain)  for the Welsh community.   The story is about all aspects of clashing cultures.  It shows prejudice caused mainly from ignorance , prejudice on both sides.  The doctor’s wife who knows nothing of cooking, cleaning or other housework, calls London  the day they arrive for her husband to practice there.  She is much more suited to life in the capital with shopping, museums, and cafes.. . . . . . or at least she thinks so at the beginning!

Oh yes, and the town is a mining town. . . . . . .

This is a fun series especially for those who have been confronted with cultural differences or plan to visit Incredible India or Wales!
