The Good Karma Hospital, the life-affirming Indian–set medical drama from ITV, is released on DVD tomorrow.
Set in a coastal town in tropical South India, the six-part drama is the story of British-Asian junior doctor, Ruby Walker, played by Amrita Acharia, who arrives at the run-down Good Karma Hospital to join a dedicated team of over-worked medics.
Amanda Redman and Neil Morrissey join Amrita for heart-warming stories, humour and heart-breaking moments. The six-part series arrives on DVD and digital courtesy of RLJ Entertainment’s Acorn label this coming week.
The Good Karma Hospital is a run-down but resourceful hospital, overseen by the wonderfully eccentric Lydia Fonseca (Redman). Held together by a hand-picked team of British and Indian medics, the Good Karma turns no-one away – locals, ex-pats and tourists are all welcome. The series follows the lives and loves of the hardworking team.
When Ruby arrives in India looking for a job and a distraction from the heartache of a broken relationship, she is prepared for the sun, sea and perfect setting, and even the sacred cows, the tuk-tuks and tummy troubles, but what she doesn’t expect are the realities of work, life and even love at an over-worked, underfunded medical centre. But as Doctor Walker adjusts to life in India, she realises that the Good Karma Hospital is more than just a rundown medical outpost – it’s the beating heart of the community, and home.
The two-disc set, RRP £19.99, is released tomorrow, 13th March 2017, and is also available on digital – iTunes, Amazon and Google the day after each episode airs on ITV.
