While waiting in line in the post office last week, I happened to glance at the magazines and noticed a bunch of becostumed ladies on the cover of a TV mag. Intrigued, I checked it out: it was a feature on The Paradise, a new costume porn drama starting up on the BBC. When I got home, I checked it out and found out it shared a writer with Lark Rise to Candleford. My guard was up. I tried so hard to like Lark Rise but really, really didn’t. Still, I was willing to give The Paradise a go. After all, I stuck with Parade’s End, didn’t I?
