New to Acorn TV in May

Acorn TV is picking up the BBC UKTV series, The Good Karma Hospital.

It’s set in tropical South India, where a heartbroken doctor from England arrives to work in a village hospital.

Dubbed “the primetime lovechild of Call the Midwife and Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”, it stars Amrita Acharia (Game of Thrones) and Amanda Redman (New Tricks). 

Three seasons have aired on UKTV; the first two will stream on Acorn TV from May 4.

The Daily Express reports a fourth season seems likely:

Although no news of a fourth season has officially been confirmed, there was a mysterious tweet from screenwriter Dan Sefton indicating another series may happen.

The tweet, which was posted on March 29, 2020, said: “Taking time out from writing next season of #Goodkarmahospital to go back to help out the NHS. I think this still works, let’s hope I do!”

Under the post was a photo of a stethoscope, and it seems Sefton has volunteered to join the front line in helping keep the coronavirus pandemic at bay.

The rest of next month’s ‘newcomers’ include:

  • 1984 Barbara Taylor Bradford classic A Woman of Substance (May 11)
  • the 1990 Sherlock Holmes mystery Hands of a  Murderer starring Edward Woodward and John Hillerman (May 4)
  • 2014 WWI drama The Crimson Field (May 18)
  • 1998 miniseries A Difficult Woman (May 25)
  • S2 of Agatha Raisin (May25).
