Storyline

In 1963, answering the call of health minister Enoch Powell, Indian doctor Prem Sharma arrives in the Welsh mining village of Trefelin to replace the late Dr. Elwyn. Many of the miners, being socialists, welcome him but others are resentful that he is not Welsh and his snooty wife, Kamini, used to tea with the Mountbattens, makes it clear that she loathes the place and wants to move to London. Fortunately, trusty receptionist Gina shows him the ropes and he starts to win over the locals, firmly announcing to Kamini that he likes the place and wants to stay. One local whose welcome routine is purely superficial, however, is colliery manager Richard Sharpe, who is at great pains to retrieve an incriminating diary from the doctor's surgery.
