Title: The Good Karma Hospital
Call #: DVD TV Good
Dr. Ruby Walker (Amrita Acharia, Game of Thrones) of London is of Indian descent, but she’s never been to India. After being dumped by her fiance, she impulsively signs on as a resident in an urban Indian hospital and clinic. Underfunded and overcrowded, with an overworked but dedicated staff, the hospital is a colorful stew of medical issues, personality clashes, love-hate relationships, and cultural misunderstandings all ruled over by a crusty ex-pat physician, Dr. Lydia Fonseca, wonderfully portrayed by Amanda Redman (New Tricks, Little Dorrit). The action is fast, the dialog sharp and witty. Two seasons available, with more on the way, I hope.
