The first episode of BBC1’s The Paradise aired last night – and more than 5 million of us tuned in to get our period drama fix. The first episode saw Denise leave her rural home to find work in the city. (It is written by the scribe of Lark Rise to Candleford if you thought that sounded familiar…)
With fab costumes, impressive sets and a gripping romance, many viewers thought there was nothing not to love! Our very own TV editor Alison Graham certainly gave it a firm thumbs up:
OK, I admit it; by episode 3 of The Paradise, I'm hooked. I give in. I can't resist such a glorious concoction. I am weak.
