Patrick Malahide as Lord Glendenning: The Paradise S01E01

The basic premise to episode one can be found in an earlier blog post. This new drama boasts a large and excellent cast so there should be lots of room for compelling stories and interesting characters.

Right now, Lord Glendenning seems like putty in his daughter Katherine’s hands. He does have a harder side though. That was evidenced in his warning Moray not to break his daughter’s heart or he shall make it his business to ruin him. Katherine is not going to make this easy because she has firmly set her sights on Moray and wishes very much to marry him. Moray is not nearly as enthused. His only focus is on The Paradise, besides there seems to be some tricky business about how, exactly, it is he became to be a widower.

For right now, Moray knows it is best to keep very much on Lord Glendenning’s good side. He manages to convince his Lordship to grant a personal loan, thus not having to convince a group of other bankers. He also manages to forestall any potential engagement to Katherine which seems to satisfy Glendenning.

"Charles Chisholm shopfront"

Check out the shop name – coincidence?? πŸ˜‰

Many thanks to RFodchuk for providing the lovely gallery below and also for very cleverly spotting something extremely interesting. It might be a bit of an inside joke as it seems a bit too good to be mere coincidence so we’re sort of considering it an Easter egg for now. If it is just a coincidence, it is a super one πŸ™‚

So what is it?Β  Take a look at the store behind Mr. Moray and loveable errand boy Arthur (played by Finn Burridge).Β  It’s called Charles Chisholm.Β  πŸ™‚Β  Named after Malahide’s Minder character Det. Sgt. “Cheerful Charlie” Chisholm,Β  perhaps?Β  As it is next to Denise’s uncle’s shop, I expect there will be a few sightings of it to come.
