Overview

A full-cast adaptation of Paul Scott's series about the end of the British Raj in India.The story of The Raj Quartet begins in 1942, with World War II at its height and Gandhi's call for the British rulers to quit India. Against this tumultuous background the story follows the British soldiers and civilians stationed in India. When Daphne Manners arrives in Mayapore, she meets two men who are to change her life: Hari Kumar and Ronald Merrick. She begins to fall for Hari, but Ronald Merrick—the local police superintendent—becomes infatuated with her and seethes with hatred for Hari.
