Series 1 - Episode 3

Review

While you may be able to cope with the sight of Neil Morrissey’s naked bottom as he serves breakfast to Lydia wearing nothing but an apron, the cavorting wrinkly nudity of Clive Russell may prove too much for those of a delicate disposition. Which is a shame because the featherlight exotic soap is focusing on the fabulously colourful festival of Holi. The scenes of revellers and of an exquisite candlelit temple are as seductive as any you’ll see in a travelogue.

The hospital meanwhile must treat “bhang”-induced injuries and illnesses, a foundling that’s been left on Lydia’s doorstep, a monkey with pneumonia and a forgetful, eccentric artist (Russell).

Summary

Ruby becomes personally involved in the case of an abandoned baby that is brought to the hospital during the Holi festival, and Lydia is reunited with an expat artist, whose unusual lifestyle may be about to catch up with him. Medical drama set in coastal town in tropical South India, starring Amrita Acharia and Amanda Redman.
