the paradise club
27 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

the paradise club was one of the best BBC dramas ever made.i hope this is repeated soon or comes out on DVD. Leslie Gramthan and Don Henderson were at their best. can anyone till me anything about peter Gowen (jonjo O'Bardy)he was gorgeous. i also loved the music. it was a brilliant idea of Murry smith making a gangland boss and a priest brothers. i wondered who was going to be converted Danny or Frank. the location where brilliant and stunts really good.second series was as the first one the last episode was really good. its a great shame shame don Henderson died when he did. we really need more good writers like Murry smith.
