I really think The Paradise suffered with bad timing. The first series was put out on a Tuesday night,when it really was a Sunday evening programme. The second series was shown on a Sunday evening against the X factor on the run up to Christmas. Try putting Call the midwife or ripper st on at either of these times and I am sure their ratings would have suffered.
The Paradise was a very refreshing fantastic love story at a time when we need more programmes like it ,with no swearing ,bad language or explicit sex scenes.
Please make a third series and show it on a Sunday evening after Christmas.

Please save The Paradise! I cannot tell how much my friends and I have enjoyed series 1 and 2 of the Paradise. I could not believe my eyes when I saw the BBC axed it. THis program is beautifully written with wonder actors. The fans can't get enough of the Paradise. Please help save it.

I bought both series 1 and 2 on DVD from Amazon and have watched every episode more times than I would like to admit. But each time I notice something new - the sign of a brilliant production. The cast is incredible - Elaine Cassidy (What a performance! She had me feeling differently towards her every episode), Emun Elliott and Joanna Vanderham (Such glorious chemistry and Mr Selfridge presents no competition for the charismatic Mr Moray) and Sonya Cassidy (a strong actress and realistic portrayal of her character). I need a third (at least) series.

I loved The Paradise and can't imagine not having it continue. I was even on vacation in Hawaii and was about to watch it even then until I realized that it was series 1 and not 2 but I watched it again anyway.

An absolutely unmissable programme. I think the BBC rushed through the last few episodes of Series 2 (prob as they knew it wouldn't be returning). However a Series that wasn't controversial, or gory, or didn't involve sex scenes, or violence and was just compulsive viewing, is obviously not what the BBC think its viewers want to see. BUT I MOST CERTAINLY DO. I am actually REALLY annoyed with the BBC - it pulled us in to this fantastic series and then dropped it without really appreciating the 'draw' and appeal of this series. The BBC were in competition with Mr Selfridge (never watched it as didn't get into it from first few minutes) and they've panicked. I would be beyond delighted if it was to return as would millions of others.

Please save The Paradise series! Loved, loved, that show! Tried watching Selfridge's, just couldn't get into it. The Paradise story lines and cast chemistry is excellent, it was such a lovely series. We here in the U.S. rely on the UK to give us these marvelous shows, this is one of my all time favorites! Please bring it back!

The Paradise had over 5 million viewers, which was more than Ripper Street had. Both are good quality dramas, it's great that we're getting a third series of Ripper Street, but we need a third series of The Paradise too!

Gutted we have lost an amazing programme all due to bbc yet again!
This series has way more to give and has been cut short.

Bring it back!!!!

Need one more series at least. We need to see the Paradise safely back in the hands of Moray and Denise. A wedding would finish it off nicely.

"...It is a sound enterprise, with potential for extensive expansion. We are not vulnerable to the whims of fashion - in fact, we are always ahead of our customers. As modern manufacturing creates new goods, we are the first to offer them... What they want is the new, the glamorous... People want betterment and ... is a haven for all that they wish for."

You could be forgiven for thinking that this is about Amazon but fans of 'The Paradise' will know that this is a quote from series 2, episode 6, written by Bill Gallagher and expressed by Denise.

Don't you think it would make quite the story to have the current shopping giant, Amazon, revive the shopping giant of yesteryear? It may even have been Amazon's inspiration (I know it's fiction). I can see the headlines now!

Amazon...please, please rescue The Paradise like you did Ripper Street (also another favorite of mine). The viewer numbers the BBC shows are just for the UK and don't take into consideration the rest of the world. I'm in the US and know many people who were devastated to learn that it had been cancelled...even before the US got to see the second series. I liked series one so much that I ordered the DVD set from you. I even ordered a couple for family and friends. Everyone I know loved the series and are very disappointed that it's been cancelled. Personally...I'd be willing to pay to see it on Amazon Prime.
