Mr Selfridge

Series 2 - Episode 10

Mr Selfridge
Radio Times
Review by:
Alison Graham

When characters visit doctors, the news is never good and you know that a case of Costume Drama Cough can’t be far away. So it is here, in the final episode, when Rose Selfridge learns why she’s been feeling a bit off-colour.

Back at the shop her wet-eyed husband decides to turn a returning war hero’s story into a retail strategy with a Comforts of the Home Front theme that seems to be centred mainly on jam. As the endless, tedious procurement scandal reaches its conclusion it’s Thanksgiving and the American Selfridge family sits down to dinner. Mr Selfridge will return for a third series, but it badly needs to sharpen up its act. Some actual stories would be a start.

About this programme

10/10. Harry is desperate to clear his name in time for Thanksgiving, but things get worse instead of better for the retail magnate when Rose brings him bad news. Meanwhile, an `amicably rowdy' dinner takes place at the Selfridge house with all the family and new houseguest Lady Mae, and there is a promise of exciting new horizons for Victor, Agnes and Henri. Starring Jeremy Piven and Frances O'Connor. Last in the series.
