ITV PREPARING 19TH CENTURY INDIA SET EPIC TV SERIES 'BEECHAM HOUSE' FROM 'VICEROY'S HOUSE' HELMER! GEORGE R.R. MARTIN'S SF SERIES 'NIGHTFLYERS' TEASER WITH EOIN MACKEN

   'BEECHAM HOUSE'
NEW 19TH CENTURY EPIC SERIES
The shooting starts this year for 2019 airing
Beside A Suitable Boy and Black Narcissus at BBC (whose Ordeal By Innocence has been just set for Easter Sunday), it seems we are getting a new India set series at ITV too after their Indian Summer saga.
Viceroy's House's Gurinder Chadha will helm the six part 19th century saga BEECHAM HOUSE about a handsome and soulful former soldier, John Beecham, who has acquired the Delhi house to start a new life for his family and a business as a trader. Wealthy and distinguished, John has witnessed profiteering and exploitation during his time with the controlling East India Company and appears haunted by his past. Determined to escape that life, he sets his sights on becoming an honourable member of the region’s trading community. But in the glorious setting of BEECHAM HOUSE, John’s life remains shrouded in mystery. His arrival provokes gossip amongst the servants and despite filling his residence with relatives and friends, Beecham’s house still has dark corners that crackle with conspiracy and sinister intent. The story also unfolds at a time when the 1,000 year old Mughal rule is over and the British vie with the Maharajas to claim India as their own.

  3. We should just leave alien life alone. We don't treat our fellow citizens properly, we don't need to mess up the aliens too.
