Win Beecham House on DVD

Beecham House

LOVE, honour, secrets, betrayal… welcome to Beecham House. Bend It Like Beckham director Gurinder Chadha pens this lavish ‘Dehli Downton’ drama, set amongst British nobles in India during the cusp of the 19th century.

Tom Bateman (Vanity Fair, Murder on the Orient Express) stars as John Beecham, an Englishman who resigned from the East India Company to make an honourable life for himself in Delhi, but he leaves Calcutta under a shadow.

How long can he survive before his secret past is revealed, and what does this past mean for his descendants in generations to come?

John’s widowed mother Henrietta (Lesley Nicol, Downton Abbey) finds life in India a difficult adjustment, but is helped by her spirited companion Violet (Bessie Carter, Howard’s End), who has feelings for John.

The staff also have a part to play: the loyal head of servants Baadal (Viveik Kalra, Blinded By The Light) would do anything for naive nursemaid Chanchal (Shriya Pilgaonkar, Fan), who accompanies John to look after his mysterious olive-skinned baby. But who is the child’s mother, and what exactly is John hiding?

Beecham House arrives on DVD on Monday, July 22, 2019, courtesy of Acorn Media International.
