Set in the summer of 1963, The Indian Doctor revolves around the outwardly jolly colliery manager Richard Sharpe, and the dark secret that he has deliberately ignored safety warnings to develop productivity in his attempts to further his own career. Evidence to this effect exists in the previous doctor's diaries, and the new Indian doctor becomes determined to reveal the truth. Subsidiary storylines revolve around the doctor's relationship with Megan Evans, the blossoming love affair between Tom Evans and Gina Nicolli, the theft of charitable funds by Owen Griffiths, and the truancy (and associated troubles) of Dan Griffiths.
