‘The Paradise’ is a BBC drama, which is loosely based on ‘Au Bonheur des Dames’ showcases the ladies wear section of ‘The Paradise’ a department store set during the Victorian splendour.
It’s not only a show which is absorbing and keeps you interested all the time, it also highlights the the class distinction in England during the Victorian era.
Sarah Lancashire as Miss Audrey, in particular, is a delight as the lady who is in charge of the ladieswear section at The Paradise and tries to keep everything in proper order.
