Beecham House is ITV's upcoming period drama and it looks stunning but just who's set to appear in the new series?

ITV's upcoming period drama Beecham House is set to air on the channel in the coming weeks.

The six-part series, created and directed by Bend It Like Beckham's Gurinder Chadha, tells the story of an 18th-century British family, The Beechams, as they start a new life in the bustling Indian city of Dehli just before British rule sets in.  

The idea behind the series is fascinating but obviously, the show needs a good cast to stick the landing, so who's in Beecham House?

What's Beecham House about?

As mentioned earlier, Beecham House tells the story of a British family who have moved to Dehli on the cusp of the 19th century. 

There is tension in the air as the series is set just before the British rule of India sets in.

From the trailer above we can see that John Beecham will be the main focus of the series as he seemingly gets embroiled in a forbidden love affair or two that opens a rift in the Beecham family household. 

When is it on?

Beecham House is set to air sometime in June according to ITV. 

We don't know any more than that at the moment but we'll be sure to update you as soon as we find out when the new series is set to start.

Who's in it?

As well as being written and directed by the exceedingly talented Gurinda Chadha, the series boasts an impressive looking cast who we can't wait to see in action when the series airs.

Starring as John Beecham is Tom Bateman of Murder on the Orient Express and Cold Pursuit fame.

Joining the family of Beechams is Henrietta, John's mother who is played by Lesley Nicol who has appeared in almost every British TV series under the sun, from Shameless and Doctors to Blackadder and Victoria Wood's Dinnerladies. 

John's long-long brother Daniel is set to be played by Leo Suter who had the enviable role of 'A Young Man' in Disney's Maleficent.

Aside from the Beechams themselves, the cast includes Gregory Fitoussi (Mr Selfridge) as French mercenary General Castillon, Adil Ray (Citizen Khan) as the Beecham's neighbour Murad Beg and Marc Warren (Doctor Who, Band of Brothers) who plays John's best friend Samuel Parker.
