Storyline

Set in a coastal town in tropical South India, THE GOOD KARMA HOSPITAL tells the story of junior doctor, Ruby Walker, who arrives in India looking for a job and a distraction from her heartbreak. She anticipates the sunshine, the palm trees and picture-perfect beaches. She's even prepared for the sacred cows, the tuk-tuks and the Delhi-belly that everyone warned her about. What she doesn't expect are the realities of work, life and even love at an under-resourced and over-worked cottage hospital.

Very enjoyable
2 March 2017 | by lh-142-355316See all my reviews

What a picky bunch some of you are. Just be glad something with 6 episodes has been set outside Europe. I only started watching in episode 4 and have caught up on STV player. I was guessing Goa where I have not been as the location due to the area not being 'dry'. Where did it ever say 'set in Kerala' all it has said is 'seaside location'. Love the mix of mature and younger cast, decorated elephant, fishermen, hippies, goats etc. I've not been to India since 1973 and this series captures many of my memories despite the fact that the hospital I was in was a more modern one even then. I met people who had been in the hospital with goats in the wards. So this is a lovely nostalgic mix up. Thanks to all involved. Can't wait for the next 2 episodes.
