As you probably already know, I'm a huge fan of all things Masterpiece, especially the "Classic" dramas. Earlier this month, The Paradise, a drama set in a 19th century shop of the same name run by the enigmatic Mr. John Moray, began on Masterpiece. I have to say what I've seen so far has been excellent.
I've tried to stay away from watching the series since I'm reviewing the DVD next month, but the siren call of British drama is hard for me to resist and I couldn't help but watch the first episode. It did not disappoint. I don't want to say too much, but I can already tell that sparks will probably be flying throughout the season if the first episode is any indication! Please stay tuned to my blog in the upcoming weeks for more on the series. In the meantime, learn more about the series here: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/programs/paradise/
