Beecham House – Season 1
What’s it about?
Created by Gurinder Chadha (Viceroy’s House, Bend It Like Beckham), ITV’s new six-part drama is set on the cusp of the 19th century in India.
The story is based in Delhi, before the British ruled the region, and follows the residents of Beecham House, an imposing mansion surrounded by acres of exotic woods and pristine lawns.
The cast of Beecham House includes Lesley Nicol (Downton Abbey), Adil Ray (Citizen Khan), Marc Warren (Hustle), Leo Suter (Victoria) and Dakota Blue Richards (Endeavour).
What did the reviews say?
“Although a world away from the likes of Downton Abbey in terms of setting, the series shares many themes including family drama and romance with the backdrop of a monumental time in history. While its truly magical and enchanting setting will leave you wanting to book a holiday to India, the element of mystery will leave you hungry for more.” ★★★★ – Metro
“Beecham House is a feast for the eyes … [Tom] Bateman as Beecham has everything a Sunday-night hero needs…” ★★★ – The Times
