The Good Karma Hospital

The Good Karma Hospital

Series 2 - Episode 3



Since this series started, we’ve been desperately hoping for a thaw in relations between Gabriel and Ruby. Tonight – spoiler alert, but don’t get too excited – they actually hug. Awkwardly and without passion, but it’s still a hug, which is a change from their usual snippy exchanges.

They’re travelling into the country to set up a temporary clinic at the tea plantation run by Ruby’s uncle. But all is not what it seems there.

Back at the hospital, this week’s storyline-with-a-message revolves around a domestic abuse case. For Lydia, it’s black and white. The wife should leave her husband. Of course, it’s not that simple.


Gabriel joins Ruby on an outreach programme to a tea plantation, but discovers that she has not been completely honest about her reasons for wanting to go there. Back at the clinic, Lydia tries to help a patient who she believes is a victim of domestic abuse.
