My love for finding new period dramas to watch is, these days, equally matched by the TV companies ability to produce them. It’s definitely a good TV time for vintage loving ladies!

There’s a new season of Downton Abbey (YAY!) but I wanted to talk about a new show I’ve started watching called, ‘The Paradise‘. ‘The Paradise’ is an eight-part series from the BBC and it’s set in England’s first department store during the 1870s. It is (as you can imagine) filled with beautiful frocks, love and drama.

The characters and the storylines are built up slowly but I kind of like that. It’s a nice change of pace from some of the more ‘action-packed’ dramas. I think there’s even a second series in the making!

If you haven’t seen’The Paradise, I recommend it. If you have… what did you think?
