INDIAN SUMMERS is created and written by Paul Rutman, starring Julie Walters, Henry Lloyd-Hughes and Jemima West.
It’s the 1930s and India dreams of independence, but the British are clinging to power. In the foothills of the Himalayas stands the hill station of Simla, where every summer the British power-brokers gather to escape the heat of the Delhi plains.
It’s 1932 and the British are retreating to the Simla Hill Station for the summer months. At the Royal Simla Club, Cynthia reigns supreme as the society queen, but the world around her is slowly changing. The first series reveals a tangled web of passions, rivalries and politics that define the lives of those brought together in the shadow of the mountains as India moves ever closer to independence.
