The hugely popular television series The Paradise returns to BBC 1 this weekend for its second series, starring MATTHEW McNULTY and BEN DANIELS. Set a year after the previous series, love and revenge smoulder as rivalries reignite at department store The Paradise.
MATTHEW is back as ‘Dudley’, oldest friend and right hand man to The Paradise’s entrepreneur Moray. As custodian of the store in Moray’s absence, Dudley has proved to be a man of enviable moral fibre. But as he tries to steer his friends away from trouble, even dependable Dudley could find himself compromised.
BEN makes his debut in this year’s series as ‘Tom Weston’, the new owner of The Paradise. A powerful, enigmatic ex-military man, he cares little for the world of retail. His marriage to Katherine Glendenning has put him at the helm of The Paradise, where slowly he becomes enthralled by the store and its employees. But as the battle for the store begins, it becomes clear Tom has something he’s trying to hide.
Tune in this Sunday 20th October at 8pm on BBC1 for the series premiere. You can watch the trailer below:
