Masterpiece: The Paradise: Episode 1

Masterpiece Classic

Bright and ambitious country girl Denise Lovett adapts to snubs and snobbery in the ladieswear department at the glittering department store, The Paradise; while its dashing and enigmatic owner, Moray, works to secure a loan from the powerful banker, Lord Glendenning. Moray is courting his daughter, Katherine, who is so supremely confident that she is immune to the rumours surrounding the mysterious death of his wife. But Denise, with her sharp intellect and curiosity, is drawn to the mystery and the man, whom in her admiration she is anxious to impress. A brilliant marketing promotion and a shopaholic aristocrat soon provide her with the opportunity, while simultaneously cementing new friendships and forming new rivalries.
