Surprisingly great story, production quality and acting!!
3 March 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the first time I'm reviewing a TV show. I watch lot's of shows, boardwalk empire, game of thrones, Spartacus, 30 rock lol, etc... really all kinds of shows. If it's somewhat of a hit, I watch it.... all kinds and enjoy all kinds of shows from all kinds of different genres.

The Indian Doctor took me by total surprise. I saw the title on a site I visit and googled it. I then went to youtube with the intention of watching a minute or two trailer to get a feel. To make a long story short, I ended up watching the entire first episode and I just finished season 1.

There are only two seasons so far with five episodes each. They are 1 hour episodes (approx. 43 minutes view time per episode). The show is extremely well done, I would put it up there with the best. The production value for their budget is nothing short of incredible. I was worried given the context of the story that the acting would be cheesy or bad, but I was pleasantly surprised. The acting is top notch and the storyline is incredibly engaging. The plot is actually extremely interesting and the character interactions are VERY well done.

I'm in North America and nobody I know (even some serious TV show watchers) have even heard of this show and I'm very proud to be the one to have "discovered" it, but anybody from any background will enjoy this.

I'm surprised it's not spoken of more or has achieved more press, the BBC has inadvertently hit absolute gold and needs to start pushing it more to their international audience.
