Amrita Acharia

Game of Thrones's Amrita Acharia takes the lead in new medical drama

The show is written by Death in Paradise's Dan Sefton with scripts from Vinay Patel and Nancy Harris and was cast in both the UK and Mumbai.

It tells the story of a cottage hospital that remains a pillar of the local community, despite being dreadfully under-funded and staffed by overworked medics.

Lead actor Acharia played handmaiden Irri in the hit fantasy drama Game of Thrones before being killed off in season 2.

More than 20 chefs will compete in a series of eight regional heats and will be judged by eight past competition winners, now some of the most in-demand chefs in the UK.

The two highest scoring chefs according to the veteran judges will go head-to-head, presenting their four-course menus to award-winning restaurant critic Matthew Fort, queen of British cookery Prue Leith and acclaimed restaurateur Oliver Peyton.

Each week the judges are joined by an expert guest judge including food critics, restaurateurs and chefs.
