There is a lot to love about Masterpiece: Indian Summers on PBS.

September 28, 2015 | Full Review…

Maybe you'll care enough to stick around for 10 episodes to sort this out. I'm not sure I do.

September 28, 2015 | Full Review…

At some point in episode three or four, when the characters and their story lines finally cohere... Indian Summers becomes a formidable and thoroughly addictive narrative.

September 28, 2015 | Full Review…

Indian Summers is better than that, never judging, never eulogising, even as it makes clear how wrong and morally vacant the whole enterprise called the white man's burden was.

May 25, 2017 | Full Review…

After watching the first somewhat slow episode, you may be tempted to give up on [the series]. But, don't. It has more than enough style, suspense and thrills to keep one glued past the first episode.

November 29, 2015 | Full Review…

A glimpse of the last gasp of the British Raj in India with its nationalistic pride and it toxic racism.
