Found this on ch4 catch up last week and have been enjoying a couple of episodes daily. I do recall watching when first on TV but somehow being able to watch in quick succession is so much better than waiting a week as i found i forgot some things from the week before and lost track of what was happening. If you love period drama give it a go you may enjoy watching agin like i did.

I watched it at the time and enjoyed the setting and costumes but none of the characters were likeable. I sort of didn't care about them. I might give it another go though.

I watched this back to back on iPlayer a few months ago having missed it the first time round. Really enjoyed it. Strange lot!

My husband and I watched this before our trip to Simla ... got a shock when we got there to find the vegetation was mainly scrubby trees! Hadn't realised Indian Summers was filmed in lovely jungly Penang!

I am rewatching it too - infinitely better than Beecham's House.

If you like things set in India (although it’s filmed in Sri Lanka) The Good Karma Hospital is nice, easy viewing.

It’s modern-day and a bit shallow but there are some great characters in it and the setting is gorgeous. It’s relaxing viewing.

Fed up! Decided to watch this series again. Was it on Netflix? No. Och. Looked on All4. Box set there. Fine. Just watch? Oh no. Have to register online on another device. Fiddled about doing that. What a palaver. Finally all set to watch episode one then what? Advert after advert. Can't face that. Switch to Netflix for uninterrupted viewing. Dumped All4 after all that. Pah!!

travelsafar - have a google to see photos of Simla. Personally I didn't like it.
