Downton fans, you’ll want to see this.
There’s a new period drama coming to Masterpiece on PBS, and we can’t wait to tune in. The series is called Beecham House, and it's a story about family ties and an unraveling mystery that’s set in 1795 in Delhi, India.
It’s set to be a visually stunning production with a compelling story to match. Of the plot and the production design, PBS says, “The drama depicts the fortunes of the residents of an imposing mansion surrounded by acres of exotic woods and pristine lawns. Tom Bateman (Vanity Fair, Jekyll and Hyde, Murder on the Orient Express) takes the role of enigmatic, soulful John Beecham, a handsome former soldier who has purchased the magnificent mansion, Beecham House, to begin a new life with his family.” You can see a glimpse in the series’ teaser trailer below.

According to PBS, “Beecham House is set on the cusp of the 19th century in Delhi before the British ruled in that region. Beecham House is created by Gurinder Chadha, the writer, director and producer responsible for numerous internationally successful films including Bend It Like Beckham, Bride & Prejudice and Viceroy’s House.”
Beecham House stars Tom Bateman (Vanity Fair, Murder on the Orient Express), Pallavi Sharda (Lion, Pulse), Lesley Nicol (Downton Abbey, The Chronicles of Narnia), Gregory Fitoussi (Mr. Selfridge, Spiral), Adil Ray (Citizen Khan, Ackley Bridge), Dakota Blue Richards (Endeavour, The Golden Compass), Leo Suter (Clique, Victoria), Bessie Carter (Howard’s End, Les Miserables), Viveik Kalra (Blinded By The Light, Next of Kin) and Marc Warren (Safe, Hustle).
Originally commissioned by ITV in the UK, Beecham House will soon make its way to the US to air on Masterpiece on PBS. No premiere date has been announced, but keep an eye out, because it could be soon. Learn more about Beecham House at pbs.org.
