Set in the later years of the British rule in India, Indian Summers is a ten-part series looking at a group of British socialites who spend their summers in a town near the Himalayan foothills. The key focus is of course on their relationships with the locals and the growing resistance among the Indians towards their unwanted overlords. It’s a very handsome production – it looks so beautiful (though Malaysia actually stands in for India) – and Julie Walters leads an excellent cast – but it all felt a bit muted to me, the drama itself very monochrome in contrast to the vivid colours of the sights and sounds.
