INDIAN SUMMERS II is the second series created and written by Paul Rutman, starring Julie Walters, Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Jemima West and Nikesh Patel.
Three years on and we return to Simla in the summer of 1935. Life in Simla continues to be as fun and debauched as ever, but Alice and Aafrin’s affair is threatened by the combination of the re-appearance of Alice’s violent ex-husband and Aafrin’s involvement with the Congress rebels. The Viceroy, Lord Willingdon, is in his final few months in the role, and Ralph Whelan has long been tipped for the top job. However, the violent arm of Congress is determined to achieve Indian independence, whatever the cost. At the club, Cynthia still reigns supreme, but even she cannot deny that it is becoming ever more apparent that British rule is fading in the sub-continent.
