Kamini Sharma (Ayesha Dharker)
Why is Kamini still in Trefelin? She often finds herself asking that too. The truth is that she’s happier here than she will admit – especially seeing her husband so motivated. And the challenges that lie ahead for them both will test her support for him and her ingenuity to the limit.
Reverend Herbert Todd (Mark Heap)
Todd is Prem’s most serious adversary in series two – a self-appointed man of God who’s come to Trefelin after several years as a missionary in Kenya.
Pious and unyielding, he struggles to hides his religious zealotry behind a veneer of good-naturedness and intellectual pretension. Todd also has a secret past that will ultimately catch up with him.
Dr Prem Sharma (Sanjeev Bhaskar)
No longer just the “Indian doctor”, Prem has grown into his role as Trefelin’s GP over the last year. He’s keen to feel a part of the community and he’s happy to think that Kamini has been convinced to stay on and support him, even though it means having her mother over to visit from India.
Megan Evans (Mali Harries)
Never one to complain, keeping herself busy is her way of coping with her husband’s death and living alone since her son left home last year. Though she still harbours a great fondness for Prem, she’s resigned herself to the belief that nothing will ever happen. So she’s completely unprepared when someone she’s known all her life suddenly takes a fancy to her.
Pushpa Bakshe (Indira Joshi)
Pushpa’s arrives in Trefelin at the beginning of the series and is immediately unimpressed. Even more regal than her daughter, her contempt for the world she finds her daughter living in permeates everything.
She finds an unlikely ally in the new minister, Herbert Todd, who’s knowledge of the Hindu religion and commitment to his cause impresses hugely. Why can’t Prem be so committed?
