Being an Anglophile I was attracted to this series after watching Season 1 on Netflix. It was sad to discover that there would not be a Season 3. Production quality was excellent. I enjoyed the character development of the main characters, as well as costumes and sets. Great Britain produces many high quality programs, and this is definitely one of them. Victorian period dramas afford us an opportunity to escape into yesteryear. We see in this series how a country girl (Denise) arrives in town expecting to work in her uncle's haberdashery shop, only to find that things are currently not in the best financial shape because of competition from a large department store directly across the street. Reminds me of what happened when Walmart came into town--so many small businesses eventually closed.

This main female character (Denise - heroine) takes a job in this large department store, where the storyline really begins to develop. Her abilities attracts the owner (Moray - the hero), and we see how Denise progresses in her job responsibilities, as well as the development of her relationships with other employees at the store,. Two of the supporting characters Arthur & Sam provide humor to the story line. We also see the character Kathryn (the protagonist) who provides the grist between Moray, Denise & herself. Kathryn is pushing to marry Moray, even though what we see developing is the growing affection between Denise and Moray. There is a nice flow of emotional experiences to hold your interest. Loved this series even though I knew that there would not be a Season 3. I've ordered what was produced, and have delighted in what I experienced while watching this program.

Watched both series on tv and just had to buy the box set for my sister as I loved it so much and she not seen it yet. If you love Downton Abbey and Mr Selfridge you will simply adore this drama .....the chemistry between the shop owner who is quite handsome and the ambitious pretty shop girl is so tense you are just willing them to get together....do they .....don't they.....just go watch it...great performances from other cast members too including the head of ladies wear played by the brilliant Sarah Lancashire.

Having missed the TV series and as we live in Portugal and had just lost UK TV after they moved the satellite I came across this series and decided to try it. The story took us through the life and times of a department store The Paradise. The brilliant acting by Joanna Van der Ham and Emun Elliott and the rest of the cast, the beautiful costumes, make-up and continuity made a very pleasing series. I found no fault at all and it was great to watch as many episodes as I wanted. I was so hooked that I had to curtail my addiction and restrict myself so i could extend the pleasure I got from watching it. A brilliant series and so well acted, charming story with the necessary evil to create the must watch feeling. If you enjoy period dramas then this is a must. Would make a lovely gift as well.

Super fast delivery with Amazon Prime, and a great box set to re-live this wonderful TV series. Very sorry it didn't continue, but nice to see Series 1 & 2 again all in one box.

Loving the series,,however I would have one small complaint,that is that the subtitles disappear too quickly and you miss a couple of sentences,which spoils your viewing.
