PREMIUM SPOTLIGHT ON 'INDIAN SUMMERS' PERIOD SET TV SERIES SEASON TWO WITH JULIE WALTERS, BLAKE RITSON, RACHEL GRIFFITHS, HENRY LLOYD HUGHES, OLIVIA GRANT

'INDIAN SUMMERS' SEASON TWO
 FOR EXOTIC SUNDAY EVENINGS!
As the highlight of our British TV week, in which I presented you with a number of brilliant trailers for upcoming new English dramas, today you can enjoy our premium spotlight on the second season of period set series INDIAN SUMMERS which will air on Channel 4 from March 13th and later this year at PBS in USA too! Channel 4's most watched series in ten years, which is planned for a five season run, charts two families living in Simla during the last days of the British Raj, a period when tensions are running high as the nation strives for independence from their colonial rulers. Series two will again consist of 10 episodes set in the summer of 1935, several years after the events of the first series, as the Indian nationalist movement gains traction.

BLAKE RITSON AND RACHEL GRIFFITHS JOIN JULIE WALTERS
Rachel Griffiths, Blake Ritson, Art Malik and James Fleet join Julie Walters in the second series. Summer of 1935 – a season where  old allegiances will be broken and new ones forged, where unbridled passions run wild and where revolution hangs heavy in the air. An assassination attempt on the Viceroy Lord Willingdon (Patrick Malahide), and the surprise arrival of Lord Hawthorne (James Fleet), puts Ralph’s (Henry Lloyd-Hughes) future in the balance. Meanwhile, Cynthia’s (Julie Walters) Royal Simla Club plays host to an important royal guest, the Maharaja Maritpur (Art Malik) and his elegant and mysterious mistress Sirene (Rachel Griffiths). Blake Ritson arrives as Ralph's sister Alice's (Jemima West) banker husband. Meanwhile, Ralph now has a daughter with gorgeous Madeleine (Olivia Grant) and has brought his secret Indian son under their roof as his house-boy unbeknownst to her.

  5. The British do know how to make good television. I decided to keep HULU and it has a lot of my favourite Brit detective shows, but it doesn't have this one yet.

    The weather is due to get spectacular here next week. I'm almost afraid to hope that we might have an actual Spring season here. Has it warmed up for you guys yet?

    1. Did you like the first season, dear? I did sent it to you, methinks, the first time! Or was you unable to play that CD?

      It's constant rain here all winter long, it is warmer, not too much, but warmer, daffodils will be opening in about a week or two, but neighbouring Croatia is expecting blizzards. So who knows....

    2. There were a few that didn't play darling and I think that was one of them.

      At least it is a bit warmer for you guys, but some sun would be nice. I feel sorry for the peoples in Croatia to be getting a blizzard this late. March weather can be crazy, I hope ours holds out.

    3. Do you have VLC player installed, dear? If you don't, go to their site and download it for free (it takes seconds) and install it (it also takes seconds) and all the videos should play well. If I haven't sent you INDIAN SUMMERS, tell me and I will next time I gather some materials for you.

      Yes, especially since STAR WARS is currently filming over in Croatia :) Stormtroopers in snowstorm :)

  8. I don't think this one is on Netflix yet, but you do know how I like to get a few seasons under my belt before starting a new show. I just finished up the first season of The Last Kingdom and need a new series to start now.
