Beecham House is a period drama set in 1795 India, during the time when the British ruled over India. The show is co-produced by UK's ITV and India's Channel 4 and premiered on June 23, 2019. It revolves around the story of John Beecham, a former employee of the British East India Company who quits his job to start a new life in India with his family. The show features Tom Bateman in the lead as John Beecham, Lesley Nicol as his mother Henrietta, and Leo Suter as his brother Daniel.

John Beecham is a widower who arrives in Delhi with his infant son, determined to make a fresh start in a place where he has no baggage or history. He is welcomed by a motley crew of servants, including Chanchal (Shriya Pilgaonkar) and Baadal (Viveik Kalra), who are fascinated by their new master's mysterious past. The show throws light on the lives of the British aristocracy in India, their social structures, cultural differences, and politics.

Beecham House is a sprawling mansion, an opulent house that was once the residence of an Indian ruler. John Beecham purchases the house from the ruler's descendants with the help of his friend Samuel Parker (Marc Warren), who is also the General of the East India Company. However, Beecham's arrival doesn't go down well with many, including the powerful General Castillon (Grégory Fitoussi), as he senses John's growing influence over the locals and his own growing ambitions.

The show is an intricate web of relationships, secrets, and conflicts set against a rich tapestry of Indian culture, music, and traditions. The Beecham family is an enigmatic one, with John Beecham maintaining a mysterious past and his mother Henrietta hiding secrets of her own. Daniel, John's brother, is a wild card who sets his sights on the Indian princess Chandrika (Pallavi Sharda), who is betrothed to the arrogant and cruel prince Baadal.

As the Beechams try to settle in, they realize that their new life is not without complications. The mansion is situated at the heart of the Indian aristocracy, which includes the Maharajah (Roshan Seth) and the Maratha (Amer Chadha-Patel) families. John is soon caught up in a dangerous game of power, greed, and corruption, with his decisions affecting not only his own life but those of his family, friends, and the Indian people.

Beecham House chronicles the tension between the British and the Indian people, the power dynamics between the two, and the unpredictable consequences of their interactions. It is a fascinating look at the clash of cultures, the struggles for power, and the complex relationships that unfold as the Beechams try to create a new life for themselves in an unfamiliar land.

Along with its well-written plot and impressive production design, Beecham House features strong performances from its cast, especially Tom Bateman as John Beecham, who exudes a sense of calm and authority, and Lesley Nicol as Henrietta, who is evocative of her Downton Abbey character. The show also boasts a talented ensemble cast that brings to life the diverse characters that make up the world of Beecham House.

Overall, Beecham House is a gripping period drama that explores the complexities of life in colonial India. It is a must-watch for fans of historical dramas, period pieces, and anyone interested in the intersection of British and Indian cultures.
