The Paradise is a stunning BBC period drama based on the novel by Emile Zola. It is about a department store and the fortunes of its flamboyant owner John Moray. Our main character however is Denise, a young girl who is given the position of ladieswear assistant within the store.
The sets are lavish and colourful and the casting is spot on. Characters are well developed, and given back stories and there is an air of mystery as to what happened to Mr Moray's wife, and what Jonas writes in his black book?
Sarah Lancashire (corrie) has a significant role in the series playing the irrepressible and snootily aloof head of ladieswear. She is brilliantly cast here!
