I bought both seasons and enjoyed the historical story-line!! I understand there was to be 5 seasons but ended up making only 2 seasons. It would be great to see the whole story!

Love this series. Can see many directions for a long-term series. The characters are well developed and the story line easy to follow. Thanks PBS for a exciting series that will challenge Downton in popularity.

Ordered this plus Dowton Abbey for $29 each including the tea bags. Indian Summer arrived with tea bags for roughly $37. Was promised a credit for the difference still have not received it. Hope when Downton Abbey arrives it is for $29 as promised.

Its been years since theres been a truly great series on the British in India. Finally, Indian Summers has arrived, and it is the series weve been waiting for. If you love India, the Raj, or both, you will love Indian Summers, which is destined, as cliche as it sounds, to become a classic. Get it now!

This has it all! Love, intrigue, and mystery and history. One reason I have enjoyed this so much is due to the time to get to know and love the characters portrayed in this movie, along with the families involved.

History in an incredible backdrop
Review by June on 07/17/20 review stating History in an incredible backdrop
The renovated Malaysian summer retreat is a perfect setting for this Colonial story which balances the lives of both the English and Indian characters. Great effort to depict life as it would have been to show the cultural and historical realities of the time -- and the costumes and hair styling is fantastic.

"Simla is an appropriately steamy setting for the scorching personal dramas that unfold." - TV Guide

"Could Masterpiece's new Raj-set British drama Indian Summers be the new jewel in PBS's crown?" - TV Insider

"…an exemplary nine-part 'Masterpiece' melodrama…" - San Francisco Chronicle

"…beautiful and engrossing." - Sunday Denver Post

"The acting is first-rate, the writing is tight and well-paced, and the cinematography and scenery are breathtaking." - Culture Vulture
