Very nice program
I really like the programme. It is written well. However, I’m still not sure why we always need Europeans to play the starring roles in programmes set in other countries; e.g., “Death in Paradise.”
The editors do quite an impressive job of hiding the fact that the show is filmed largely in Unawatuna, Sri Lanka. All traces of Sinhala writing are carefully kept off camera, except for one scene in which, fleetingly, a Sinhala advertisement for A-levels tutoring was shown on a signpost.
I am giving the programme only four stars instead of five because you could have put Indian characters in the role of hospital administrator and others. We don’t always need Europeans to come to the rescue.
Season one’s a nice introduction. Season two repays “investment” in S1 (hardly a cost since it’s enjoyable in itself) with real emotional depth and character development. A unique and enjoyable series.
