Trivia

Reshma Shetty (Divya) is married to fellow actor Deep Katdare, and the last name of Divya's character on the show is Katdare. Deep Katdare also executive produced and acted in a movie, Hiding Divya (2006), which premiered three years before the premiere of Royal Pains (2009). Thus, both the first and last names of Resma Shetty's character on the show, Divya Katdare, are either a reference, or a tribute, to Shetty's real life husband. See more »

I love this show!!
13 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is great! I think it has the perfect mix of, well everything...the only thing I don't like is the character Jill, I don't think the actress is a very good actress she seems to be trying too hard, other than that I love everything about the show. I love Dr. Lawson and Evan!!! I can't wait until next summer!! Think this show has great potential. I love the different story lines and illnesses. I'm interested to see all the complex stories they can come up with. I have noticed that it's usually the simplest answer. I guess the appeal is as patients, we want a doctor that is caring and smart...in really life that doesn't really happen. I'm stoked for next season!!
