Series overview
 
The Good Karma Hospital series two returns to tropical South India as the formidable Dr Lydia Fonseca and her team face new challenges. It’s a year since Ruby Walker first arrived in Kerala, looking for a job and a distraction from her heartbreak. Ruby is now settled in India, and Lydia feels it’s time for her apprentice to step up and take on more responsibility.
 
Series two will see Ruby deepen her understanding of India, her new home. An outreach clinic to a tea plantation will allow Ruby to make surprising connections to her Indian family and to understand where she’s from and where it is that she belongs.
 
Ruby will also move closer to Dr Gabriel Varma. Their sparky working relationship becoming something more. But as they navigate their changing feelings for each other, Ruby must decide if she’s ready for a new romance.
 
Lydia’s relationship with Greg hits a rocky patch when Greg jokingly mentions marriage and Lydia’s reaction suggests they might not be in the same place. It leaves them wondering what the future holds for them.
 
Series Two of THE GOOD KARMA HOSPITAL will see our team’s dedication, skills, resourcefulness and their professional and personal relationships put to the test. They will only get through these challenges by coming together to work as a team. Lydia, Ruby, and the rest of the Good Karma crew will come to understand that, through good times and bad, they can always rely on each other.
