    Enjoyed the opening episode, as it's written by Bill Gallagher (Lark Rise to Candleford) no surprise to find some Candleford cast members.

    Based on the first episode we'll stick with it. We're building up a huge amount of stuff on the hard drive and Blu-Ray given our recent problems. A combination of lack of time to watch them and not wanting to watch anything too serious. We haven't even started on Christopher Eccleston's Blackout yet and I'm sure you know how big a fan of his I am. I suspect The Paradise is one we'll be able to get away with.
