Paradise Postponed COMPLETE S01
Paradise Postponed is a 1986 TV serial based on a novel by John Mortimer. The plot focused on inquires into why the leftist Reverend Simeon Simcox left the Simcox brewery millions to the loathsome Leslie Titmuss, a city developer and Conservative cabinet minister. Simeon’s sons Fred, a jazz-drumming doctor, and Henry, once Britain’s brightest and angriest writer, conduct separate inquiries into Simeon’s life as they try to understand the will. Novelist John Mortimer brought his legal expertise and sombre humour to the plot, set in a rural English village, that takes in the upheavals of British society from the 1940s to the 1970s.
