the indian doctor
The Miracle

Trefelin is deserted as Prem waits for a vaccination unit to arrive from Cardiff. But Reverend Todd is still determined that only he can save the village, and wastes no time in telling the villagers that God has stepped in where Prem's medicine has failed. The community seems oblivious to the deadly outbreak that it faces, and Prem seems to be losing the fight. While Prem tries in vain to round up the villagers for immediate vaccination, Todd discovers his daughter Verity's affair with a married man and decides on a severe punishment. An exasperated Prem decides to call in the law to help him. His battle with Todd for control over the village reaches a head when suddenly another man falls seriously ill.

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).
