  2. Yes, you've already informed us about Beecham House.
    As far as I remember, the creator and director of this historical drama is an indian female. This fact, I think, might add authenticity and quality to the plot and characters.

    1. It won't as this is not set in colonial times, but before it, while that part of India still had it's Indian emperor! That is why you have this French soldier in the cast, they were still fighting against Brits for the influence there, before Brits won and started their bloody Raj.
