But, as she tries to escape she finds herself becoming the only person who can help local tearaway Dan whose wild ways get him in trouble. With the previous doctor's green leather diary found, Prem's friendship with Megan deepens as she translates it from Welsh into English and they realise that Dr. Elwyn's diary holds vital clues to the deteriorating health of the local miners. When Prem questions the mine manager Sharpe about the miners' health, Sharpe tries to persuade the doctor that health hazards are just an unfortunate part of a miner's job. Meanwhile Gina, Prem's receptionist, is falling recklessly in love with Tom.

About The Indian Doctor:

THE INDIAN DOCTOR is a comedy drama set in the 1960s, when a South Wales coal mining community is changed forever following the death of the local doctor, whose replacement comes as quite a shock to the villagers.

High-flying Delhi graduate Dr.

Prem Sharma (Sanjeev Bhaskar -The Kumars at No.

42; Paddington 2) and his wife, Kamini (Ayesha Dharker - Indian Summers, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones), eschew a glamorous lifestyle in London for the sleepy Welsh village of Trefelin.

Once in Wales, they quickly become embroiled in the lives of the villagers, although the regal Kamini is determined they are leaving as soon as possible.

It won't be smooth sailing as Prem quickly starts to realize that things are not quite as they should be.

Featuring appearances by Mark Williams (Father Brown), Mali Harries (Hinterland), and Mark Heap (The Trouble witt Maggie Cole).
