Review

Mr Selfridge has been more corny than the Jolly Green Giant but it’s had its charms as a piece of Sunday-night frippery and flummery. Putting aside Jeremy Piven’s toothsome, arm-flapping performance — look at me, I’m an AMERICAN! — there are treasures in the supporting cast, particularly Amanda Abbington as the ill-used but dignified Miss Mardle and Tom Goodman-Hill as her swine of a swain, Mr Grove. In fact, the best scenes in the last episode (fear not, Mr Selfridge will return) belong to these two as Mr Grove humiliates poor Miss Mardle one last time.

As for Mr S, he greets Selfridge’s most famous ever visitor, a charming first-time shopper, but things go downhill when the Selfridge family are appalled by a trip to the theatre.

Summary

Harry arranges for Edward VII to visit the store for an after-hours shopping spree, and is later invited to be the king's guest on the first night of Ellen Love's play at the theatre. Rose agrees to attend with her husband, but it's a decision she will soon come to regret. Meanwhile, Henri delivers sad news to Agnes, Kitty lets Miss Mardle in on a shocking secret and Victor decides to take matters with Agnes into his own hands. Starring Jeremy Piven, Frances O'Connor and David Calder.
