A life-affirming drama, full of heart and hope, series four of The Good Karma Hospital sees the fiercely passionate and outspoken Lydia Fonseca forced to confront her complex past when Greg faces deportation. Meanwhile, beloved Ruby Walker struggles to look to her uncertain future, after Gabriel Varma’s shock departure. Excitingly, we also introduce two new doctors, the charismatic British Asian Muslim, Samir Hasan and the epitome of a young, privileged Indian woman in Nikita (Niki) Sharma, who is getting a taste of medicine at the sharp end. As with all families, this medical family has their ups and downs, yet they are bound by duty to their patients – and love for one another. Escape with us to Kerala in South India, with all of its contrasts and to this beloved community hospital.
