Storyline

When a sleepy 1960s Welsh mining town's only doctor dies, the only replacement the union representative could find arrives, straight from India. To everyone's surprise, he's better educated and more cultured then anyone they know, yet friendly and eager to help. His wife however looks down on the 'peasants', compared to viceregal Delhi, and wants him to move to London. Written by KGF Vissers

Brilliant !
26 October 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dark Comedy, Melancholic drama, the acting is brilliant, the backdrop is as apt as apt can be. It has a very LOTR-shire like characteristics. It takes you to a different world, yet its a real world. The cast is small but intricately woven so you know the characters in and out. There always a background story line "noise" - which stays with you all the time yet does not let you get preoccupied with the outcome. Its probably the most "human" show i have seen in a long time. Sanjeev Bhaskar has managed to shed his image as a slapstick comedian in this venture. I am sure most people will be pleasantly surprised, and those who are not, give it some time. You'll get involved before you know it. Hope BBC recommissions it.
