The Brits can really make quality television series. Indian Summers is one of those wonderful British drama series, with first class actors, costumes and setting.
The story takes place in the late 1930s and into the final period for India as a British colony. Love between the British and Indians, jealousy, repression and murder are bearing ingredients in the series. The growing resistance against British colonialism becomes more and more visible, in the years into the Second World War.
Indian Summers is a great drama and entertaining story, about the last years of the British Empire.
