The Paradise

What a pity the wonderful drama drama, The Paradise, has now concluded! Based on a novel by Zola, and scripted, I believe, by the same brilliant writer who adapted Lark Rise to Candleford, it was one of the most gripping and enchanting and beautiful series I have seen since Lark Rise!  I sincerely hope that the writer goes on to write a third series and to adapt other great dramas because it is so wonderful to have beauty brought to the screen to combat all the gore, dreariness and excessive violence of so many TV series nowadays. At last, something uplifting in beautiful settings with absolutely excellent actors playing multi-dimensional characters and an intriguing plot.
It is so lovely to have beauty brought through the screen and I firmly believe that the scriptwriter is one of the very best ever to have written for television. Thank you, BBC, for bringing such loveliness!
