The Good Karma Hospital S1-3Watch full episodes now
The Good Karma Hospital was inspired by series creator Dan Sefton’s experiences as a doctor in South Africa. The show has an 80% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with the New York Times saying, “If Good Karma Hospital is your kind of drug, you’ll want to mainline it” and Radio Times UK praising it as a “lovely piece of sun-drenched, colourful escapism.”
The hospital drama follows junior doctor Ruby Walker (Amrita Acharia from Game of Thrones), who ditches London and a broken heart for a job in an under-funded rural South India hospital run by the tough-as-nails Dr Lydia Fonseca (BAFTA nominee Amanda Redman from New Tricks). BAFTA winner Phyllis Logan (Downton Abbey, Secrets and Lies), Screen Actor’s Guild nominee Philip Jackson (Brassed Off, Little Voice) and Neil Morrissey (Men Behaving Badly, Line of Duty) also star.
Season 3 brings Ruby back to the hospital following a four-month absence. She receives a chilly welcome from both Lydia and a wounded Gabriel (James Krishna Floyd from My Brother The Devil), whose aloofness belies the feelings he still has for her.
