The doctor will see you now…

We chat to stars Amanda Redman, Neil Morrissey and more as feel-good drama The Good Karma Hospital returns to ITV for its highly anticipated third series

“This series, generally, has the most mystery of the three so far…”

Lovesick fans have spent close to two years twiddling their thumbs in the tellyland waiting room after series 2 wrapped up in April 2018. But now, the long wait is over, as The Good Karma Hospital is opening its doors once more!

 

With the much-anticipated third series set to get under way this weekend, viewers can at last return to the sun-soaked (and occasionally, just plain soaked) shores of southern India for another six hours of drama, intrigue, and more romance than our last saxophone recital. Ahem. Where were we…

Amanda Redman in The Good Karma Hospital


Amanda Redman’s fearsome Dr Lydia Fonseca is back, and she’s as frosty, formidable and thoughtful as ever. Neil Morrissey also returns as her bumbling, but loveable partner Greg, with the duo’s chemistry taking centre stage as new characters enter the fray from the get-go.

 

And after the second series’ finale saw Fonseca’s protégé Ruby Walker (a brilliant Amrita Acharia) leave the hospital to set up a clinic at her family’s tea plantation, it remains to be seen whether her will-they-won’t-they romance with James Krishna Floyd’s Dr Gabriel will flourish further or fizzle out altogether.

 

Creator and writer Dan Sefton delivers more riveting plots and paths for the characters to journey through this series, with one in particular proving as shocking as it is sadly relevant. So much so, in fact, that it’ll undoubtedly stick with you long after the credits have rolled.

 

But don’t just take our word for it. We were lucky enough to sit down with stars Amanda Redman, Neil Morrissey, Amrita Acharia and James Krishna Floyd to chat all things Good Karma ahead of the new series’ rip-roaring opening episode.
