Returning shortly to BBC One will be the period drama The Paradise. The series is based in a department store in the 1870s and its setting, along with its premise, has made it an easy target for the press as it is compared with ITV‘s Mr. Selfridge.
However, it was The Paradise which aired first and the BBC were quick to commission a second series which will begin shortly. Joining the cast for the new season will be Ben Daniels, Adrian Scarborough and Lisa Millett.
Returning cast members include lead stars Emun Elliot and Joanna Vanderham along with Elaine Cassidy, Stephen Wright and Sarah Lancashire.
