It’s 1935 and Simla prepares once again for the annual arrival of the Indian Civil Service for the summer season.
Although it’s seemingly business as usual for the British administration, a lot has changed for our characters in the three years since we last spent the summer with them in the foothills of the Himalayas.
Rachel Griffiths, Art Malik and James Fleet join Julie Walters and the rest of the cast of this sweeping and elegant drama series.
It’s the summer of 1935 – a season where old allegiances will be broken and new ones forged, where unbridled passions run wild and where revolution hangs heavy in the air. An assassination attempt on the Viceroy Lord Willingdon, and the surprise arrival of Lord Hawthorne puts Ralph’s future in the balance.
Meanwhile, Cynthia’s (Julie Walters) Royal Simla Club plays host to an important royal guest, the Maharaja Maritpur (Art Malik) and his elegant and mysterious mistress Sirene (Rachel Griffiths).
