Season 2

Mark Heap and Indira Joshi star alongside Sanjeev Bhaskar and Ayesha Dharker in the second season of the BBC One award-winning drama The Indian Doctor.

In this new five-part season set in the Sixties, the deadly disease smallpox hits the South Wales mining community and high-flying Delhi graduate Dr. Prem Sharma (Bhaskar) and his wife Kamini (Dharker) find themselves at the centre of the emergency.

Prem and Kamini have to work together to discover the source of the outbreak and vaccinate the villagers against infection before it's too late.

Mark Heap plays Herbert Todd, a self-appointed evangelist who has recently returned to Trefelin after a decade of missionary work in Kenya. Undeterred by the illness – he has seen it before in Africa – he ministers to the sick but isn't the help Prem had hoped for.

He also has to deal with his daughter, Verity, played by Naomi Battrick , who is at home for the school holidays. Whilst appearing a model of obedience to her father, she soon reveals her real self to others in Trefelin.

Indira Joshi plays Pushpa, Kamini's mother. Not an easy woman to please, she arrives in South Wales from India to stay with her son-in-law and daughter, Prem and Kamini.

Prem has established a successful practice and Kamini has created a lovely home for them, however Pushpa is a little bewildered by their new life and can't understand how they cope without servants.

When Prem identifies the first case of smallpox, however, Pushpa, who has seen smallpox in India, gets involved in taking care of the patient.

Prem also enlists the help of the local policeman Emlyn, played by Alun Ap Brinley, to shut off the valley and not allow anyone in or out, and to manage the panic in the town when everyone finds out about the outbreak.

Returning to the series are Ifan Huw Dafydd as Owen, Mali Harries as Megan, Erica Eirian as Sian, Naomi Everson as Gina and Jacob Oakley as Dan.

The Indian Doctor is made by Rondo Media and Avatar Films and the executive producers are Tom Ware for Rondo Media, Deep Sehgal for Avatar Films and Gerard Melling for the BBC.
