Beecham House on SCETV and SCETV Passport

Beecham House

MASTERPIECE is known for its epic dramas, and Beecham House is no exception.

The exotic location — India in 1795 — and spectacular scenery as well as excellent acting will transport you to a different world. The six-episode series revolves around the life of John Beecham played by Tom Bateman, who was a soldier and trader in the East India Company until he grew disgusted with its practices and resigned. He purchases a grand mansion to start a new life for himself and his family.

The staff at Beecham House are shocked to discover their new master has arrived with his infant son, August, a baby of mixed parentage. John is determined to start a new business, reunite his family in Delhi and keep the identity of his child a secret, but that will not be easy.

After an arduous journey, his mother Henrietta, played by Lesley Nicol, arrives from London, and John discovers that his younger brother is in a nearby military camp. John believes he is close to fulfilling his dream of reuniting the family until the mysterious Chandrika arrives, throwing the household into chaos. That’s just the beginning!

Beecham House airs Sunday, June 14, at 10 p.m. on SCETV. The entire season is available now with SCETV Passport.
